Sometimes, though only in my most unguarded moments, I can still think of Annette Winters as my first love. At fifteen, she was tall, slender, very dark: an intelligent, sly girl possessed of what I think of now, though I didn’t think of then, as a kind of debatable beauty.
My generation is so intelligent.
I’m not being really intelligent in my film choices; I’m just landing the opportunity when it comes.

If college cut-offs are above 90 per cent in a particular class, then where would mediocre students with 60 per cent or 70 per cent go?

Ian McKellen is brilliant with research. I paid really close attention to the sources he goes to. He’s a very, very intelligent man.
Thinking is the place where intelligent actions begin. We pause long enough to look more carefully at a situation, to see more of its character, to think about why it’s happening, to notice how it’s affecting us and others.

'How do you know so much about everything?' was asked o

The intelligent man is one who has successfully fulfilled many accomplishments, and is yet willing to learn more.

Fifteen- to 30-year-olds are interested in all kinds of intelligent movies – it doesn’t have to be a broad comedy or an action adventure for them to go see it.
The Clinton paradox: How could a president so intelligent, so compassionate, so public-spirited and so conscious of his place in history act in such a stupid, selfish and self-destructive manner?

Eric San
For eight years, it did not matter how balanced President Obama was. It did not matter how educated he was or how intelligent he was. Nothing was ever good enough for his opponents. It was clear that he could not win. It was clear that, no matter what he did, in their eyes, he could not win.

Teri Polo

For me, consciousness is the most interesting unsolved problem of science, and, in fact, we may never know what it is about a particular arrangement of neurons that gives rise to consciousness. Our consciousness, like the air we breathe or like the passage of time, is central to our existence as intelligent beings.
I’ve always scribbled, and I still do it. I’ve written numerous scripts for films for which I think I’d be perfect as the complex, intelligent and, yes, modern heroine. Embarrassingly bad, all of them. I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that I’m not a writer.
Ranbir is a very intelligent actor and he is one of my favorite actor in the present generation. He is very good and he is very intense. He is doing a wonderful job and his choice of films is very good.

Everything is not serious. If you don’t like what I’m saying, change the channel – don’t look at me, don’t buy a ticket. You either get it or you don’t, and it’s fascinating because it’s usually intelligent people with a sense of humor who get it.
You can be far more challenging, articulate and intelligent writing for television than you can writing for the cinema.
I hate being asked how I met my husband and very personal questions like that. I don’t like that. People are too nosey. Intelligent questions I like, but sometimes people ask such silly, dopey ones.

If people never did silly things nothing intelligent would ever get done.
Pence is far too conservative for me, but by all accounts, he’s an intelligent, experienced, decent man with no skeletons in his closet.
If I’ve ever regretted anything, it was putting all my eggs in one basket, holing up and kneeling at the altar of literature, instead of going out and at least reviewing, running around and trying to write for magazines. That would’ve been the intelligent thing to do, but I didn’t, and that was because of fanaticism.
Nowadays there’s the taping of the boobs. The tanning has become pretty intense with these young ladies. The hair extensions have become very serious… But I hate it when pageant girls get a bad rap, because they really are intelligent women. They’re ambitious women; they’re driven; they’re educated.
Precisely because intelligent design does not turn the study of biological origins into a Bible-science controversy, intelligent design is a position around which Christians of all stripes can unite.
I think network TV to a large extent has underestimated the intelligence of the American public for so many years now. It’s tried to appeal to the lowest common denominator.

Luck, bad if not good, will always be with us. But it has a way of favoring the intelligent and showing its back to the stupid.
John Dewey
As a player, you get to the stage where you realise that you are not 25 anymore – and can’t play the way you used to. The intelligent players adapt – and Steven Gerrard has the ability to do that. He is an excellent passer of the ball, possesses an intelligent football brain, and has great vision.
The British keep employing me, and that makes me like them. It also makes me think they’re very intelligent.

We have to be able to adapt to new situation. It’s another form of the definition of intelligent behavior.

I think Douglas was a real one-off. He was so clever and so intelligent and so well read in real science that he could make science fiction work as well as it did. And just such fun to have around, he was just such a lovely man.
Lalla Ward
The best critics do not worry about what the author might think. That would be like a detective worrying about what a suspect might think. Instead, they treat the reader as an intelligent friend, and describe the book as honestly, and as entertainingly, as possible.

Two young actresses I admire are Emma Stone and Emma Wa

Two young actresses I admire are Emma Stone and Emma Watson, because they are intelligent, talented actresses and have a great sense of humor. They have learned to balance what they love in life – acting, school and everything else.
Kara Hayward
I want to prove you don’t need to have academic syntax to be intelligent.
I had intelligent, high-minded, liberal parents who wanted to make sure my values were just like theirs.
I’m a practical person. Most fashion people live in the clouds, and they’re full of it. I live like a human being – or, I try to – and I have to be intelligent; I have to be practical. I’m a great believer in common sense, and the older I get, I see that common sense is not that common.
I want to make clothes that are beautiful of course, but also clothes that are interesting and considered and intelligent and not out of place.
Having an intelligent secretary does not get rid of the need to read, write, and draw, etc. In a well functioning world, tools and agents are complementary.
I loved ‘Homeland‘ – it’s such an intriguing, intelligent piece of television, and I am fascinated by them making a hero and heroine that are so odd, so flawed and so complicated. It is a programme that really draws you in.
My family is certainly very vocal. They’re very Italian. A lot of our holidays end with people screaming at each other across the room. And everyone’s very opinionated and intelligent. A lot of my aunts and uncles are wildly educated, and their opinions reflect that. We’re all very liberal.

I’m not much for cats. I’m terrified of mice. I’ve worked a lot with elephants, and they are extremely intelligent and sensitive, and thankfully, they seem to like me. You never want to get on the bad side of an elephant. And never trust a chimp.
Deep down, creationists realize they will never win factual arguments with science. This is why they have construed their own science-like universe, known as Intelligent Design, and eagerly jump on every tidbit of information that seems to go their way.
Sure, you’re an intelligent and highly capable individual, and you are learning a lot on the fly as you build your company. But you also need to come to terms with the fact that there are things you have chosen not to be an expert in.

Drew Curtis

Even though I am fantastic looking, I am still quite intelligent.

Sunken gardens should be laid out under the supervision

Francois Hollande is an intelligent man. I do not have a problem with him. The only thing is, he has never held office at the state level. Honestly, can you imagine Francois Hollande as president of France? Imagine it!

David Lange
You can go through life and actually speak your mind and do it in an articulate fashion and with a really intelligent point of view.
I remember I was up for the role of Jim in ‘Huck Finn,’ and because I went to Harvard and Yale, they didn’t think I would be able to play a slave. I said, ‘Oh, please.’ I had to go in there and prove to them that I wasn’t too intelligent to play a slave.
A lot of new artists, especially girl artists, feel pressure to be so ‘media perfect’ and ‘trained.’ I’m intelligent, but I don’t like hearing regurgitated answers in interviews that sound so rehearsed.

Once I should have been, if not satisfied, partially, at least, contented with suffrage for the intelligent and those who have been soldiers; now I am convinced that universal suffrage is demanded by sound policy and impartial justice.
Salmon P. Chase
If a film is being made by an intelligent director, they’re going to cast the right guy.
You have to assume that you’re talking to the most intelligent, tuned-in audience you could ever get. That’s the way you’re going to get the best out of people.

The eurosceptics, many of whom are my friends and are highly intelligent people with strong views, they are entirely respectable in every way, I just don’t agree with them.
