In this post, you will find great Anyway Quotes from famous people, such as Molly Ringwald, Mario Vargas Llosa, Tom Petty, Amy Adams, Jennifer Ehle. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
I think that children that are acting are always pretty savvy anyway because you’re conducting yourself around adults a lot of the time, aren’t you? But there is this worry now that children just want to be famous.
People are going to label you anyway, but the one that bugs me the most is when they say, ‘One of the funniest female comedians.’ There’s s no ‘funniest male comedians.’ You’re either a funny comedian, or you’re not!
I take none of that to heart. I don’t feel like there’s anything that I need to do for anybody else. I want to win bad enough for myself anyway, that nothing anybody can say can make me want to win any more.
For a homosexual, he’s one of the nicest guys I ever met. And he’s good at what he does. You know, he’s got leadershipability, and if these people here would listen to him, he would take ’em a long way. But anyway, me and Richard got to be pretty good friends – not in a homosexual way, that’s for sure.
I don’t know how you prepare for something like that. I cannotimagineliving in a fishbowl like that. I don’t live here so I don’t know it will be that bad anyway because I live in Paris and we don’t have that sort of phenomenon there. So I don’t know, we’ll see what happens.
My parents didn’t know anything about collegiate scholarships, so they had accepted the national teamtraining stipend, the monthly stipend that I received after making the national team, so I was ineligible for NCAA eligibility anyway.
I think plays have nothing to do with one’s own personal life. Not in my experience, anyway. The stuff of drama has to do, not with your subject matter, anyway, but with how you treat it. Drama includes pain, loss, regret – that’s what drama is about!
I’m always a little starstruck anyway. So to work with a movie star, which is Brad, I was excited about that; to work with a movie legend, which is Tony, I wouldn’t have passed that up. Just to get to watch him and watch how he works.
I think people stop themselves from doing the things they want to do. I just think you never know how long you’re going to be around so you might as well do the things that are intriguing. Nobody really cares anyway so you have to do what makes you happy.
I hated the idea that I would be like my father. Which is one of the reasons I decided I didn’t want to be a writer and wanted to be an actor instead. I wanted to go in a total different direction. But, of course, I ended up being a writer anyway.
My life was falling apart and then to come out and play and have my best ever – 40 wickets, 250 runs… But the only reason I could do that was because of the way I thought and I think I’m pretty strongmentally. I think I am anyway, pretty strong to get over whatever it is.
The best piece of advice someone has ever given me was ‘do it scared.’ And no matter if you’re scared, just go ahead and do it anyway because you might as well do it scared, so it will get done and you will feel so much better if you step out of your comfortzone.
Some people think wearing powder ages them, but try it anyway. For me it mattes my makeup and blends it well.
If you don’t tour, you cannot expect to sell a hugenumbers of your albums either. It was both a business – and an economical decision and we wanted to play anyway. We just wanted to get out for the tour when it was safe enough for us.
I love ‘Yo Gabba Gabba!’ because it’s a real kids‘ show. There hasn’t been a real kids’ show since ‘Dora the Explorer.’ It mixes hip-hop with being a kid. Hip-hop came from youths anyway. It’s just a great, funky show.
Well, we don’t take money from people and then show the product. It has to be a product that we like anyway, and that’s true for all five of us, which is one of the really nice things about the way we make the show.
The Queen has stayed with me in the sense that she lets people come to her. She doesn’t feel like she has to go out. I mean, she doesn’t have to anyway because of her rank and her position, but she doesn’t have to overdo it.
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.
I had an opportunity to meet Elvis, only once. It was at the MGM Grand. It was certainly not at the height of his career. No, it wasn’t at the height of his career, but it was still a thrill to see him and meet him anyway. You know?
I’ve been an employee all my life. Would I wish, if I could rewind it, to have gone down a different route? Possibly, but I’ve had a great time. Anyway I’m not ruling it out; I could still buy a business.
Irony is the recourse of the weak-minded wimp, I think. I hatebands that deliver their songs with knowing smiles on their faces, so that if those songs fall flat they can say ‘Ah well, we never really meant it anyway.’ It’s so dishonest.
With actors, all our ages are out there for all to see – you can’t hide anything, really. And it’s kind of a relief. This is my age, this is what I look like without makeup on – who cares? That youth culture – that lying about your age – it’s all denial of death anyway.
Weight gain can happen at any point in time, and it is something that you are dealing with anyway, and it is OK. It is ridiculous to have this dictate your very being because I have always said that it is not the outside that defines who you are.
Often times we feel like either we can’t make a world of difference, or we feel that it’s not going to change anything anyway. The truth is you can change someone’s day, you can change someone’s life, but you have to show up and do what you got to do to actually see any fruit coming from it.
I think that when I’m telling a story, I’m doing the best I can to tell the story as fully as I can, and if there are various fractures that happen in the story, then that’s just the very thing that the story is as opposed to my looking for avenues of difference in one story. They just really do exist. For me, anyway.
I don’t really do simple. I’m not really interested in simple at the end of the day, because nothing’s ever simple, and nothing’s ever perfect. People certainly aren’t – I would hope, anyway, because that would be boring, wouldn’t it?
We once believed we were auteurs, but we weren’t. We had no idea, really. Film is over. It’s sad nobody is really exploring it. But what to do? And anyway, with mobile phones and everything, everyone is now an auteur.
We were great mates. We didn’t really go out together because we never really had the time to go out. But we were with each other all the time anyway because we were working all the time. We could sit down and talk for hours, and we still can. We just understood each other.
I was a fat kid who didn’t discover the joys of active play at the time of life when we’re supposed to be imprinted with a love of movement. That means that I’d rather be called for juryduty than go to the gym, but I go anyway.
My process is very disempowering to the director anyway, so it’s essential that you be respectful. Once we’ve sort of found the scene, I have to get out of there, because you don’t want to split the actor’s idea of who’s in charge.
Ethiopia didn’t just blow my mind; it opened my mind. Anyway, on our last day at this orphanage a man handed me his baby and said, ‘Would you take my son with you?’ He knew, in Ireland, that his son would live, and that in Ethiopia, his son would die.
You say something, things you would rather forget, and then they are out there. It makes me anxious and I don’t know why people are interested in me anyway. If I had my way, I would rather exist in a little hole and not speak to anyone.
A lot of my time is spent watching films and readingscripts. And it can be all-consuming. And it’s obviously something I’m fortunate that is both my work and my hobby. It’s what I would naturally be doing anyway.
Every film requires a different process. You learn about these particular actors and the particular chemistrybetween these actors. Recognizing when you don’t need to shoot a scene because it’s going to be cut anyway.
In tech-land, no one cares what kind of car you drive, and frankly, they’re not going to find out anyway. You’re not going to go to lunch together, because you’re going to be sitting in your cube with a brownbag eating lunch.
Depression is internal. The upswings and downswings have pretty much nothing to do with what’s going on in the external world. It’s not like something sad happens to you and then you feel sad. Good things happen, but you feel sad anyway.
Sure, I love people, and I want to communicate with people. I mean, what is music anyway? It’s a form of communication – at least for me it is. And that’s why I play the kind of music that I think – that I hope – can communicate with people.
Maybe I should say that memoryinterests me a great deal, because I think we all tell stories of our lives to ourselves as well as to other people. Well, women do, anyway. Women do this a lot. And I think when men get older, they do this too, but maybe in slightly different terms.
My whole approach to wardrobe is, throw it in a suitcase and make sure they don’t press it, for Pete’s sake, so I can try to display some rumpled charm. Actually, I’m just a pig. I’ve got coffee stains on my pants. I think they’re coffee stains, anyway.
Anyway, I just haven’t been able to find any humanity in any Republican candidate ever in my entire life.
I honestly think that in five years time, television will be watched on computer screens anyway and you’ll be doing multiple things. You’ll be ‘IMing’ while you’re watching a show and checking the news.
I just took the idea that King Kong was too big for everything and reversed it and put George in a land of giants, which is basically what every kid goes through anyway – that, you know, the world is made for grownups, for tall people, for the giants.
War’s stupid. Nobody wins. You might as well talk first; you have to talk last anyway.
As long as people are using the Internet, people are going to do stupid stuff, and people are going to do bad stuff. And by the time that robots are sentient, they’re going to enslave us anyway, so it won’t matter.
It’s true, you can never eat a pet you name. And anyway, it would be like a ventriloquist eating his dummy.
What’s revolting is the body-positivity movement. What’s revolting is this idea now that you can tell women they’ll be happy and healthy at any size. Why? Because it tells women that you can be fat, and you can be unattractive, and you can be happy anyway. That’s a lie.
I don’t do very much for beauty. I use very simple things on my skin. I haven’t got time. I would always get facials and then come home laden with product, and pay a lot of money and never use it. Anyway, one day a dermatologist told me to use Cetaphil to clean my face and as a moisturizer, and that’s what I do.
I have no great desire to play a great role. You can’t make quality on TV anyway. It’s always a manurepile. You’re on the top, or you’re on the bottom, but it’s still a manure pile, and I’m not sure the movie industry isn’t like that, too.
We didn’t have a phone when I was a kid, and I was too shy to smash any public phones, and our town didn’t have a pool hall either, so I had to hang out at the public library – and anyway, I told myself stories.
I pinch myself every day anyway. Everyone knows the road I have had in the game and how I have managed to get myself to where I am today.
Writing is pretty flexible work, don’t you think? If you want to surf, you just have to get a lot done when the waves are lousy. That’s what I’m always telling myself, anyway – write while the surf’s down!
I try not to define myself. Other people are going to do that for you anyway.
I stayed in the East for about a year after I graduated. Then, I came out to Los Angeles and started knocking on doors and working my way up. This was the ’70s. I had been told how tough it was for a woman trying to make it in Hollywood, but I sort of had blinders on. I just did things anyway.
Aerodynamically, the bumblebee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.
Mary Kay Ash
It’s a very telling thing when you have children. You have to be there for them, you’ve got to set an example, when you’re not sure what your example is, and anyway the world is changing so fast you don’t know what is appropriate anymore.
We’d been noticinghow much more important the internet had become – once information is out there in the world now, anyone can get it. Since that was beginning to happen with the record anyway, we figured, OK, let’s just stream it for free ourselves.
Knowing his coach likes him is more important to a player than anything else. To me, it was important to be able to chew out a player for screwing up and for him to accept it because he knew I liked him anyway.
Ever since I’ve ever heard music, I thought it should be very clean, very precise – as clean as possible, anyway, and more or lesstuned to people. Something they could understand, something that was beautiful, you know?
This may be a dream, but I’ll say it anyway: I was supposed to be marriedlast year, and I bought a gown. When I meet NelsonMandela, I shall put on this gown and have the train of it removed and put aside, and kiss the ground that he walks on and then kiss his feet.
Asking myself, ‘Is this any good?’ is pointless. It just slows down my writing, and I can’t tell anyway. It’s always the paragraphs I loved most, the ones I tenderly polished and re-read with pride, that my editor will suggest cutting.
We don’t communicate in full sentences anyway. We don’t need all those words.
When you’ve got four people to get dressed to get out the door you don’t really spend a lot of time on yourself. But that’s the way I roll anyway. I was never one to do my hair and make-up just to go to the market, so it’s not that much different. If I get a little eye cream on, I feel I’m ahead of myself.
My diet is mostly chicken and fish. I make sure I get a lot of vegetables, a lot of fruit. I am a big fruit man, I am a vegetable man anyway. And I also get a lot of rest. That’s the key I may be up early, but I’m in bed early too.
If we focus on our health, including our inner health, our self-esteem, and how we look at ourselves and our confidence level, we’ll tend to be healthier people anyway, we’ll tend to make better choices for our lives, for our bodies, we’ll always be trying to learn more, and get better as time goes on.
If you’re an independent voter, I’m willing to bet that you were not too happy at the prospect of hitting the polls on November 8, 2016. But let me guess – you did it anyway because after all, it’s your civic duty, right?
I really like playing good guys, of course. Although, people make mistakes in their lives, and you could say that the mistakes make us who we are, by how we respond to them. I just don’t want to play boring good guys, but I don’t have that problem, anyway.
I can understand there are things like shadows they need to fix after a shoot, but it’s unfair to represent an image of yourself if it’s not true. They’re gonna see what you look like on film anyway, so why try to cover all your wobbly bits in a photo?
I’ve never been that guy who says, ‘Ooh, I have to play King Lear’. First off, that’d be a disaster anyway. I tend to read something and see who’s involved, and then know I want to be part of it. But I don’t think I’m through with comedy. I still love to make people laugh.
If someone has it inside them to commit an act, then that act would be committed anyway. It’s very easy for someone to place the blame on something other than the person who committed the act. It’s people looking for scapegoats, you know?
Daniel Patrick Moynihan is the archetypal extremely smart person who went into politics anyway instead of doing something worthwhile for his country.
I mean, everyone says Citizen Kane. It isn’t that great, anyway. And Orson Welles I knew well, of course. He made other incredible films that no one would let him make, which were much better than Citizen Kane, really.
You know, I eat, I ate pretty well anyway so, I’m basically living the same, I just curtailed the stupidity.
I love watching BillyBob, just as a punter anyway. I like his work. But working with him is really easy and really straight-forward. He’s immediately good. He doesn’t have to work up to it. He doesn’t make your life difficult. He listens. He’s a very good listener, in terms of his acting.
There’s a schizoid streak within the family anyway so I dare say that I’m affected by that. The majority of the people in my family have been in some kind of mental institution, as for my brother he doesn’t want to leave. He likes it very much.
I think I was first choice for the part. I don’t know – that’s what they always tell you anyway. I didn’t have to do any audition for the part. Sam saw me in Dinner and the whole thing slipped into place.
I think melancholy is part of the natural condition, you know. Anyway, I think it’s the artist’s function to have their melancholy and not hide it, you see.
I portray female characters, so I have the opportunity to change the way people look at them. Even if I wasn’t consciously doing that, it would happen anyway just because of how I present as a woman, or as a person. I present in a way that’s not stereotypical, even if I’m playing a stereotypical role.
My daughter has probably gotten some benefit of being inspired by a woman who is willing to take on things. We travel. We travel to exotic places. I’m the first person to jump in the ocean with a whale. Even if I’m scared, I’ll do it anyway, because I never wanted her to see fear, especially when she was younger.
I’m not called Jude Law, I have three names; I’m called ‘Hunk Jude Law’ or ‘Heartthrob Jude Law’. In England anyway, that’s my full name. That’s the cheap language that’s thrown around, that sums you up in one little bracket. It doesn’t look at your life. But if one looks beyond, there is actually a little bit more.
The sublime moment seems to be only a product of allowing yourself to get through, to get to a lot of stuff in your life, write about a lot of stuff and not edit yourself. That is a great lesson to learn for anybody that writes or creates in anyway, to be able to make something without being good or bad.
It’s really hard to say how long the show will last and will continue. I hope it lasts for a very long time. As long as kids watch it, anyway. But beyond this, sure, I would love to be doing film. I’d love to be doing more theater and perhaps even writing.
Anyway the war is over so far as they are concerned. But to wait for dysentery is not much of a life either.
Erich Maria Remarque
You can make sure your kids make their beds and hang up their clothes and put their dishes in the dishwasher when you’re the one calling the shots. So, parenting alone, for me anyway, I think is almost easier, being single.
There’s been no real reason to move to LA. The stuff I’ve done for America has been done in Europe anyway. We made a decision early on that we’d find our base and not shake the children’s world as much as mine.
I don’t claim that our TV comedies are highbrow in anyway, but I think there’s a basis to them, and that’s why they’re more popular than other TV comedies. There’s a basis of truth in them, a gut feeling.
I’ve not gotten so much stuff because I improvise in an audition, but I always feel like, if that’s the case, the reason is because it wouldn’t have worked out anyway with us working together.
Everybody’s got something. In the end, what choice does one really have but to understand that truth, to really take it in, and then shop for groceries, get a haircut, do one’s work; get on with the business of one’s life. That’s the hope, anyway.
The great apologist has to have lived large and wild. If he’s going to kiss the world’s boo-boos and make up, he’d better plant some bruises first. A master apologizer has to be a Lord Byron, a Rick in Casablanca, a Lee Atwater, anyway.
I dividecriticism into two categories – one coming from those who understand music, who are worthy of being critical because they are knowledgeable about what they are saying; and then there is another category of people who would criticise you anyway, whether your work is good or bad.
After high school, I was going to move out to L.A. and try to pursue my dreams of acting. My parents said, ‘That’s fine. We support you, but you have to go to school,’ which was fine because I’m a studious person anyway; I enjoy it.
Sometimes you’re afraid to fall in love with a chick, but she sucks you in anyway.
There is a history of gay people pretending to be straight. I want to balance the sides. I’m a straight person pretending to be gay. I’ve had a lot of people to imitate. It’s easy when you’re British; we’re camp by nature, anyway.
I did get offers from Hollywood, but they were all scripts with monsters in them. If I had done them, I would have disappeared. I would have come back to France anyway, and I would have had to start all over again and lost a lot of time.
When you say things like, ‘We have to wipe out the Taliban,’ what does that mean? The Taliban is not a fixednumber of people. The Taliban is an ideology that has sprung out of a history that, you know, America created anyway.
I remember watching the Blu-ray, and also when they first released it on DVD in the collection of all three movies of ‘The Godfather,’ and seeing all of those scenes that they cut out, and there wasn’t a single one of them that I wished they had kept it, but they were the most exciting thing to watch anyway.
Sometimes I gotta look in the mirror and say, ‘Hey, they’re still saying you’re too fat, but you’re here! They gotta take it or leave it.’ And in most cases, if they leave it, it’s all good because they don’t need to be in my space anyway.
My life is quite physical anyway. When you are three-foot-six you kind of have to climb stuff now and again, and you find yourself in quite precarious situations just to manage in what is quite a big world.
Anyway, so here I was caught between Johnson on the one side, who was my leader, I was his whip, and here was my dear friend, personal friend, Kennedy, and they’re going to go into my state and ruin it. What am I going to do?
I make these little films. I’m just a working person. I just study people a little bit more. It’s more sociological, and it’s funny anyway – not that serious. It’s not like falsehumility. I just take it for what it is.
He used to have a tent show, a little tent show, and I thought I was going to get a job working one year on the tent show, but he closed it down and I never got to go out there, but anyway, he had a sax and played drums.
A two-and-a-half-year-old is pretty experienced at making a mess, anyway.
I did plays in high school, but I was convinced you couldn’t make a living doing it. You don’t have a lot of options in Indiana anyway, though, so I didn’t want to stay there. I graduated early and worked a bunch of really odd jobs, and then I joined the Marines.
This is ridiculous, I mean, wholly ridiculous. It never did any child any harm to have something that was a tiny bit above them anyway, and I claim that anyone who can follow Doctor Who can follow absolutely anything.
Diana Wynne Jones
Sometimes I panic to the point where I don’t know what I’m thinking or doing. I have a full anxietyattack. I have them all the time anyway, but with auditioning, it’s bad.
I would love to do a Bond song, and I could have done a Bond song: I was offered a Bond theme, but I turned it down because I didn’t like the song. But as it turned out, I was right anyway because the song was the only Bond theme that never became a hit, so I’m glad I wasn’t associated with that!
I don’t need to hear Bill to go through a song. I need to hear Keith to go through a song. I know Bill will be playing what I’m playing anyway. I need to hear Keith because it’s all there: the time, the chordchanges, and all the licks you have to follow.
When I wake up, I expect things to be good. If they’re not, then I try to set about trying to make them as good as I can ’cause I know I’m gonna have to live that day anyway. So why not try to make the most of it if you can? Some days, they pan out a little better than others, but you still gotta always just try.
I like America anyway. In Japan we are much more formal. If two friends are separated for a long time and they meet they bow and bow and bow. They keep bowing without exchanging a word. Here they slap each other on the back and say: Hello, old man, how goes everything.
The best job was when I was at drama school and I cleaned flats in the Barbican. I loved it. They were spotless anyway, so you’d just watch the telly and flick a duster around.
Equal Vision seems to be doing really well. A lot of these major labels are just imploding and becomingindie labels, anyway.
Christianity has stayed stable, as it must do. The doctrines don’t change. The understanding of what it means to walk with God doesn’t change. The reality of worship doesn’t change, not at heart, anyway. So Christianity appears to be stuck.
J. I. Packer
The lyrics are what I work on the hardest, but I’m not trying to make a perfectly clear message or anything like that. In fact, I’m usually trying to avoid saying something too directly, because usually that rings false anyway.
I look back at my elementary or high school pictures and I always had gel in my hair and a gold chain that I would wear outside my shirt. That’s how I was born and raised as an Italian male, and I always considered myself a Guido, anyway.
I’m really happy with Elektra, I don’t have anything bad to say about them at all. I always knew a major label was the right place for me to be. I never really had an opportunity to go to an independent label anyway.
Music itself is a great source of relaxation. Parts of it anyway. Working in the studio, that’s not relaxing, but playing an instrument that I don’t know how to play is unbelievably relaxing, because I don’t have any pressure on me.
Anyone who grows up reading the Bible for spiritual reasons, you get accustomed to reading things that are too much for you, too profound for you… Having that belief that you should read them anyway gives you a great advantage over people who only read what they think they can understand.
As soon as someone tells me: ‘You’re rather sexy,’ I wish I could disappear. If somebody says: ‘You were voted the world’s sexiest man,’ I have no idea what that means. How do I respond? ‘Thank you’ is the best you can do. George Clooney is the world’s sexiest man, anyway.
My boyfriend, who I love to death – he’s only 17 so he’s the youngest guy I’ve ever dated – he just moved here from Hawaii to be with me and I met him when I was 10. Anyway, in Hawaii they have such a different mentality and different priorities.
Like everybody in show business, you think you’re going to wake up one day, and it’s all going to be taken away from you. I think we all share an insecurity in that way, everybody in show business – the ones I talk to, anyway.
I’m used to riding horses. My father used to breed horses when I was a child. I grew up in Tipperary, in the country, and lots of people have horses there. If my parents hadn’t been in the business, we would have them anyway, as pets. And my cousin Richard is a jockey.
You have got to make new music, that is the way that I look at it anyway.
I had this dream in my head of, if I got hired by ‘SNL, what that moment would be like. And I dreamed that I would, like, collapse on the sidewalk and cry to the heavens. I got this call, and it didn’t happen naturally. But I did it anyway because I wanted to have that moment. So I did collapse.
When my children were very young, I was slated to go on a business trip. When it was nearly canceled, I decided I wouldn’t tell anyone and go off for a week’s vacation anyway. In the end, the trip went off as planned. But I was intrigued by the idea of an illicit holiday.
I have never liked the memoir form because I tend to think that memory fictionalizes anyway. Once you claim that you are writing a narrative purely from memory, you are already in the realm of fiction.
I’ve fallen in love in my life a few times. It’s the most exciting part of being alive – that I’ve experienced, anyway.
When I knew I was pregnant four years ago with a boy, a friend suggested I call him Cary, but I initially resisted. There was only one Cary Grant. But a week before he was due, I started thinking it would be wonderful to pass the name on to him. And anyway, my father wasn’t Cary to me. He was Dad.
I’m not a princess anyway so I find that quite weird to be labelled as one.
Al Gore didn’t need to distance himself from Bill Clinton when he ran for president in 2000 because, when he ran, the country was in very good shape: strong economically and not at war. He did it anyway, and it was, in many people’s estimate, mine included, one of the reasons he lost.
Scriabin, as you know, is a mysticcomposer. His music is supersensuous, superromantic, and supermysterious. Everything is super; it is all a little overboard. Anyway, my parents were pleased that I played for him.
Because so many voters happen to be illiterate, India invented the party symbol, so that voters who could not read the name of their candidate could vote for him or her anyway by recognizing the symbol under which they campaigned.
I like writing characters that seem different from one another. So if you were to hypothetically look at a bunch of lines from books I’ve written, just out of context, hopefully you would be able to determine who said what. That’s the goal, anyway. I try to stronglydifferentiate through dialogue.
With social networks these days, everyone needs to know everything all the time. But the problem is, people are so used to short snippets of information that no one has any attention span anymore. I don’t, anyway.
Anyway, the title The War of the Insect Gods came before we had that ending, before we knew they had become gods. That we knew the evolutionary cycle they went through. Before we even knew anything about that. We had an ending.
One of my first questions when I interviewprospectiveemployees is, ‘Do you know how big a sheet of plywood is?’ Most people don’t, and say they are different sizes, but it’s 4′ x 8′. Anyway, working with your hands is a very American thing that we kinda lost here, but it’s an important skill to have.
