The think that we hung the film version all on was ‘Hedwig’ on tour. On stage, it’s one theatre, one show. It just seemed natural to change it.

In 1985, I was the host of a talk show, ‘Hot Properties on Lifetime.’ Hulk Hogan was on the show. He put me in a headlock and rendered me unconscious and let me fall to the ground. I split my head open and got nine stitches – and this was on live TV.
The case is I talk for a living, so I should be able to say anything I want to say regardless of how you feel. What we’re starting to deal with now is your opinion matters, but to be quite honest, your opinion means nothing.
People ask me why my figures have to be so black. There are a lot of reasons. First, the blackness is a rhetorical device. When we talk about ourselves as a people and as a culture, we talk about black history, black culture, black music. That’s the rhetorical position we occupy.
I am tired of talk that comes to nothing.
You can talk about anything if you go about it the right way, which is never malicious.
When you hit the big time, big money, big egos, people don’t talk. You have no friends.
Therefore, when we arrive in a place and talk to new people about a new image, it is very hard for them to visualize it. That’s where the drawings are very important, because at least we can show a projection of what we believe it will look like.
Software innovation, like almost every other kind of innovation, requires the ability to collaborate and share ideas with other people, and to sit down and talk with customers and get their feedback and understand their needs.
If one plays good music, people don’t listen and if one plays bad music people don’t talk.
In my own view, Hamas‘s frustration derives from a lack of legitimization by Israel and by much of the world. It is this frustration that leads them to such destructive desperation. That’s why we need to grant them status as a legitimate enemy – before we talk about an agreement or, alternatively, about a frontal war.
I keep myself away from people who talk badly about others.
The Republicans ought to be nowhere near trying to help Obama save his bacon. But they don’t think that’s what they’re doing, I’m convinced. You talk about trauma and the need for therapy, I really think that the Republicans have been genuinely psychologically traumatized by decades of media criticism.
I probably talk to myself more than I talk to anyone.
They say women talk too much. If you have worked in Congress you know that the filibuster was invented by men.
There are some things that you see that are hard to talk about. You can’t talk about it. You just bear witness to them.
People who actually have money don’t want to talk about it. They want to talk about everything else.
I was never a good student. I had to be dragged into kindergarten. It was hard to sit and listen to somebody talk. I wanted to be out, educated by experience and adventure, and I didn’t know how to express that.
I learned early on, stay away from politics, stay away from religion and don’t talk about sports. Those three right there will get you in trouble.
Peace comes when you talk to the guy you most hate. And that’s where the courage of a leader comes, because when you sit down with your enemy, you as a leader must already have very considerable confidence from your own constituency.
In true education, anything that comes to our hand is as good as a book: the prank of a page- boy, the blunder of a servant, a bit of table talk – they are all part of the curriculum.
Tis the privilege of friendship to talk nonsense, and have her nonsense respected.
Sometimes I walk down the street and hear people whisper ‘that’s Tricky‘ and I look back, and I see them looking back, then that affects everything I do – the way I walk the way I talk. It stops you being real.
When I was young, I was the sweetheart of the press. They loved me but were kind of waiting for me to mess up. I had no skeletons in my closet, no major past to talk about.
When top scientists and psychologists talk about what’s important to our overall wellbeing and how satisfied we are with our lives, the only thing that they all agree on is that social relationships are probably the single best predictor of our overall happiness.
Anybody I’m dating, I don’t want them to talk about my music. I don’t talk about my music to them.
Hunger and homelessness aren’t things we always want to talk about.
I want ‘Scars to Your Beautiful’ to reach different types of women. The girl I am talking about, it’s me, it’s you – it’s every girl who has struggled with feeling not good enough. I want to talk about all the different extremes that girls go through to feel beautiful.
Certainly in the case of ‘Kill Your Friends,’ a book I wrote more than 10 years ago, I routinely meet interviewers who appear to know the book better than I do. But still, you have to talk about it.
No matter how vast, how total, the failure of man here on earth, the work of man will be resumed elsewhere. War leaders talk of resuming operations on this front and that, but man’s front embraces the whole universe.
Every quarterback can throw a ball; every running back can run; every receiver is fast; but that mental toughness that you talk about translates into competitiveness.
Candor is a compliment; it implies equality. It’s how true friends talk.
We do not talk – we bludgeon one another with facts and theories gleaned from cursory readings of newspapers, magazines and digests.
It is vain to talk of the interest of the community, without understanding what is the interest of the individual.
Zayn’s good to just sit down and chat to about pretty much anything. At the end of the night, we just sit around and talk about our life before One Direction, or anything at all, really.
In Missouri, where I come from, we don’t talk about what we do – we just do it. If we talk about it, it’s seen as bragging.
Slang is really coded talk. I can say a few things, in front of somebody, that only people who know what I’m saying are going to pick up on.
People are very reluctant to talk about their private lives but then you go to the internet and they’re much more open.
It is easy to talk on religion, but difficult to practice it.
If you’ve ever watched someone who is a mother talk on the phone, feed the dog, bounce the baby, it’s just astounding to see someone manage, more or less well, to do all those things. But on a computer, multitasking is really binary. The task is either in the foreground, or it’s not.
I don’t like to talk much with people who always agree with me. It is amusing to coquette with an echo for a little while, but one soon tires of it.
I think business has to be stupider. I want to do really straightforward, stupid business – just talk to me like a 4-year-old. And I refuse to negotiate. I do not negotiate. I can collaborate. But I’m an artist, so as soon as you negotiate, you’re being compromised.
What hypocrites we seem to be whenever we talk of ourselves! Our words sound so humble, while our hearts are so proud.
If I could talk to my younger self, I would just say that the path to great things is filled with a lot of stumbles, suffering, and challenges along the way. But if you have the right attitude and know that hard times will pass – and you get up each time – you will reach your destination.
DJ Envy‘s definitely talk about me, but I’m one of many. I was under the assumption that he had kids but wasn’t actually married. I found out around the time that I started filming ‘Love & Hip Hop.’ After I found out, I was still in shock because we were together for so long.
An important part of dating is communicating. We communicate by sharing our thoughts, ideas, and feelings. We enjoy being with someone when we have an easy time communicating or when we have a lot to talk about.
No man would listen to you talk if he didn’t know it was his turn next.
I don’t think people are going to talk in the future. They’re going to communicate through eye contact, body language, emojis, signs.
I grew up in a house full of women: my mother, grandmother, three sisters, and two female cats. And I still have the buzz of their conversations in my head. As an adult, I have more female friends than male ones: I just love the way that women talk.
It’s my mission to get the New Zealand accent into a Hollywood show. I’m proud of the way we talk, and I’m here to represent it. Kiwis are everywhere: they’re in every city of the world. I’ve checked. We have a voice… it’s a bit of a funny one at times, but it’s one that I want to promote.
When you talk to a human in 2035, you’ll be talking to someone that’s a combination of biological and non-biological intelligence.
When you speak of role models, when we talk to our kids, everybody is a role model, everyone, just as you look at a Michael Jordan to be the terrific athlete he is.
My early memories are full of football talk around the house, of Dad standing on the terraces at Ayresome Park, of the occasional precious new pair of boots.
I’d be so fascinated to talk to a psychologist or sociologist about the deep psychological impact of seeing oneself represented. I don’t think we’ve really touched the surface of what it does to the psyche of a people if the only image of you out there is negative. Or if it’s never out there.
I hate it when people talk about Buffy as being campy… I hate camp, I don’t enjoy dumb TV. I believe Aaron Spelling has single-handedly lowered SAT scores.
People start to talk about post-racist, post-feminist. What does that mean? We’re clearly not post either. Would you say post-democracy? Clearly we haven’t reached true democracy yet.
People talk about tactics, but when you look at it, tactics are just players. You change things so that the team can get the most out of the skills they have to offer, but you don’t go any further than that.
Some of the cases which have come to light of employers being disciplined or sacked for simply trying to talk about their faith in the workplace I find quite extraordinary. The sanitisation will lead to people of faith excluding themselves from the public space and being excluded.
Everywhere I go, everyone I talk with, everyone I think about – their salvation is what is on my mind. I love fellowship with Christians, but I can’t become preoccupied with the pleasure of fellowship when I know that sinners are sinking into hell.
A peace talk is always difficult, always complicated.
The question is not, ‘Can they reason?’ nor, ‘Can they talk?’ but rather, ‘Can they suffer?’
They talk most who have the least to say.
No matter what we talk about, we are talking about ourselves.
We need men and women to sit down and talk to each other about sex honestly and openly. That would help us fight Aids so immediately. But our lack of communication is hugely problematic.
I enjoy dating. I love first dates. I think they’re incredibly fascinating studies in human psychology. When you sit down across from someone on a first date and things are going alright, you talk objectives. We want to win each other over, so how do you win someone over? You have to put the best foot forward.
I wanted to be a doctor that I might be able to work without having to talk because for years I had been giving myself out in words.
I really like Kendrick Lamar. I’m still a Talib Kweli fan, Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def, Common Sense – people who say things that are relevant to everyday life. I don’t pay attention to artists that talk about throwing money away and the car that they drive.
If you’re a preacher, you talk for a living, so even if you don’t make sense, you learn to make nonsense eloquently.
What’s different now is that while political leaders used to give talking points to talk radio, now talk-radio hosts are giving talking points to political leaders. It’s all part of the suffocating spin cycle we’re in. In media, politics and publishing, the conventional wisdom is to play to this base.
When you talk about the SEC, you never get a chance to rest.
In general, what fans talk about and think about become a very important source of inspiration to us, because we want to write something that’s real to people, especially those who listen to BTS music.
People who talk about revolution and class struggle without referring explicitly to everyday life, without understanding what is subversive about love and what is positive in the refusal of constraints, such people have a corpse in their mouth.
Don’t you talk to me about members of the Royal Family, you know I am not going to talk about them. Diana‘s dead. Talking about dead people is history.
There is plenty of television. There are plenty of talk shows. There are plenty of comedians. But there is not plenty of worship of the true and living God.
Dance was something that came to me before I could even walk or talk.
I might talk about killing people, but that doesn’t mean I do it.
It’s more common than not that bipolar illness will start in the teens. One of the reasons I spend a lot of time on college campuses is exactly that reason. It’s terribly important to talk to students about knowing these things in advance.
If a lion could talk, we could not understand him.
Talk radio has made an enormous run around establishment media. But the Internet is making an end run around talk radio. Suddenly we’re faced with an information age.

Illegitimacy is something we should talk about in terms of not having it.
It seems to me an indictment of the Republican Party that if you talk about issues of poverty and upward mobility, people assume you’re a Democrat.
Why is it that when we talk to God we’re said to be praying but when God talks to us we’re schizophrenic?
The smug complacency of technology adverts disguises a pretty mixed picture, with too many people not connected, too many passive users of technologies designed for interactive, and far too much talk about empowerment but far too little action to make it happen.
If I could talk to my younger self, I would tell her that you will grow into the woman you’ve always wanted to be. You will find love. You will be successful. You will be happy.
I feel like we have so much to add to this book called the American Dream, and I want to add our chapter to it. I want to talk about what it means to be brown American and this concept of what I feel is the New Brown America.
I stay away from online dating. Interacting with the person right in front of you is a much easier way to talk.
Everyone is on the internet but they’re not all talking with each other. There are groups upon groups out there, but they don’t talk to one another. So while the internet brings everyone into a shared space, it does not necessarily bring them together.
Some people talk in their sleep. Lecturers talk while other people sleep.
When you talk in terms of electricity, renewable is very important. Hydro in Manitoba. Hydro in Sweden. Wind in Denmark. Of course, those are very important.

Talkers are usually more articulate than doers, since talk is their specialty.
Talk to a man about himself and he will listen for hours.
People talk about the conscience, but it seems to me one must just bring it up to a certain point and leave it there. You can let your conscience alone if you’re nice to the second housemaid.
Gender is not an easy conversation to have. It makes people uncomfortable, sometimes even irritable. Both men and women are resistant to talk about gender or are quick to dismiss the problems of gender. Because thinking of changing the status quo is always uncomfortable.
I’m someone that needs to talk about my problems. I call my mom every single day at school just to vent about random stuff. Singing is the same thing.
If women talk in ways expected of them or project a feminine demeanor, it’s seen as weak. But if they talk in ways associated with men or bosses, then they’re seen as too aggressive. Whatever they do violates one or the other expectation: either you’re not talking as you should as a woman or as boss.
I probably learned, being in ‘Taxi Driver‘ before I made my first film, I would come to the set every day just to watch how that film came about. It’s like a graduate course: it’s terrific. You talk to the cinematographer during the breaks. You ask the electrician why they are doing this.
They never taste who always drink: They always talk, who never think.
Reading is a conversation. All books talk. But a good book listens as well.

Talk is cheap. Actions speak.

When we talk about having a life of significance and meaning, it’s not about fame or money or resources. It’s about people and lives and hearts. That’s my biggest passion in life.
Talk to people in their own language. If you do it well, they’ll say, ‘God, he said exactly what I was thinking.’ And when they begin to respect you, they’ll follow you to the death.
Religion is something we don’t talk about, and it is used by uneducated people as a weapon to divide us as opposed to connect with each other.
What are you gonna do, talk the alien to death?

Forgive me my nonsense, as I also forgive the nonsense of those that think they talk sense.
I think the biggest misconception about me is people really don’t know who I really am. They see the party side of me, they see the crazy side of me. But I also have a laid-back side. You know, I’m chill, down to earth. If you want to grab a cup of coffee and just talk about life, I can do that.
They’re always trying to claim that if I talk about world government and corruption, I’m anti-Semitic.
I have this idea of a Taiwan Consensus, which means people in Taiwan have to get together and form a consensus of their own and that they turn around to talk to the Chinese to form a cross-strait consensus so we can build a relationship on that consensus. And in my view, that is the right order to do things.
Don’t like small talk, love rainy days.
I’ve had Republicans come to me and say, ‘Tell me how I should talk to young people!’ as if it’s some foreign language or something.
We talk about the Internet. That comes from science. Weather forecasting. That comes from science. The main idea in all of biology is evolution. To not teach it to our young people is wrong.
As you talk to Heavenly Father and pour out your heart to Him, you will draw closer to Him. Then pause, stop, and listen to the feelings of your heart. Seek to understand the promptings of the Spirit. As you pray sincerely, you will come to feel Heavenly Father’s great love for you.
I don’t like to talk about myself.
Retire at various times into the solitude of your own heart, even while outwardly engaged in discussions or transactions with others, and talk to God.
Not everyone’s really got the heart to talk about what’s going on with their love in their music.
I just always wanted to study human behavior because every psychologist that I would talk to would tell me I was bipolar, and I know I’m not bipolar, so I had to perform a psychoanalysis on myself to find out that I have unresolved grief.
I thought talking to human beings was just something that could make things complicated and unpleasant. So I didn’t talk much. I just watched people.
I am convinced that 100 years from now, people will talk about Elliott Carter as one of the most important figures in the second half of 20th-century music.
If you’re going to preach dedication, work ethic, teamwork, unselfishness, and being part of a team to accomplish a common goal, you have to live it – you can’t just talk about it.
As far as anybody in the rap game ever tryin’ to assassinate my character, that’s impossible. You talkin’ about a man who has always walked the walk and talked the talk.
Talking is always positive. That’s why I talk too much.
I don’t even talk about whether or not racial profiling is legal. I just don’t think racial profiling is a particularly good law enforcement tool.
Information technology and business are becoming inextricably interwoven. I don’t think anybody can talk meaningfully about one without the talking about the other.
It never occurred to me that I was going to have to talk to a camera. I don’t know if I can do this.
It’s really a sad story, and I liked that. The songs on this album talk about relationships in every aspect.
When people talk about political correctness, the only element of any value is good manners.
People who are feeling bullied and people who feel like outsiders should talk to their parents and guardians about finding a place with likeminded people where they can feel accepted. That’s what I needed, and that’s what I found with musical theater.
When you are in local government, you are on the ground, and you are looking into the eyes and hearts of the people you are there to serve. It teaches you to listen; it teaches you to be expansive in the people with whom you talk to, and I think that that engagement gives you political judgment.
Remember if people talk behind your back, it only means you’re two steps ahead!
When I talk about the end of apartheid, I prefer not to claim the honor that I have ended it.
I’ve had the opportunity to work with so many great directors. Different styles, as well, like Gus Van Sant. He just does the casting and the milieu and let’s you do your thing, quietly. Bertolucci, who can talk to you about your internal world in quite a creative way or just say, ‘Well, put your hand over here.’
There is no better way to manage than by walking around. Autocracy doesn’t work. Talk to people in their offices, find out what’s on their minds.
You can talk about Holocaust denial, but it’s really marginal for the most part. What is compelling about the Armenian genocide, is how it has been forgotten.
Know how to listen, and you will profit even from those who talk badly.
I’m the greatest game-spitter of all time. I talk about the swell, the block, the ‘hood. I’m a street commentator. I narrate how people live. That’s E-40.
Now I’ve even gotten to running out to the fan buses that pass by our house, so I can talk to the people. I think I’m trying to gather fans, frankly. They’re very, very nice people – they really understand. It’s fun talking to them.
You never really learn much from hearing yourself talk.
It’s often just enough to be with someone. I don’t need to touch them. Not even talk. A feeling passes between you both. You’re not alone.

To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.
For me, it’s always been a financial kind of scenario. I was actually the first one who signed the ‘exclusive to Ring of Honor’ contract. I was the first guy who ever signed one of those contracts. That was tough for me because I had no one to talk to. I had no examples to go on. I was the guinea pig.
My message is that giving is very important. Giving is a Jewish thing, and I like to talk about that. There’s nothing more important, personally, for anybody than being able to give.
I’ll speak for myself, but there’s a lot of humor to be found in sarcasm and darkness. You talk to any paramedic, they survive by developing a pretty off-kilter sense of humor.
They talk like angels but they live like men.
If they’re not talking about you, you’re not doing something; you’re not doing anything. So if they’re talking about you, you may be doing something right. And when they talk bad about you, you just use it for motivation.
Don’t talk to me about civility when you’re separating families at the border.
Losing my father at a tender age was hard, and I felt it more so while growing up when I needed a father to talk to. Especially while pursuing an acting career where I would have loved his guidance and advice, since it was his passion as well.

If the dead talk to you, you are a spiritualist; if God talks to you, you are a schizophrenic.
I think ‘One Woman Army‘ sums up the overall picture. I talk about love, about life, and I talk about what I want and would hope for and what I need as a woman. It kind of just says it all, you know?
American life is based on a reassurance that we like one another but won’t violate one another’s privacies. This makes it a land of small talk.
We all have something about ourselves that we’d change if we could in a perfect world, be it our body image, our financial status, our relationship, whatever. I wanted to talk about how nobody’s exempted from the realities of life and all those things.
I talk to God but the sky is empty.
Your children can be around you all day, but if you don’t spend quality time with them and you don’t pay attention to them and talk to them and listen to them, it doesn’t matter that they’re just around you.
The more I talk to people who are at a place I’d like to be at, whether its music or writing, or being a doctor or entrepreneur, sometimes you get lucky, and right away something happens. But for most people, the common denominator of success is just working really hard.

I don’t mind you thinking I’m stupid, but don’t talk to me like I’m stupid.

Michael Jackson and I talk all the time. I think we understand each other in a way that most people can’t understand either of us.
You cannot talk about race without talking about privilege. And when people start talking about privilege, they get paralyzed by shame.
My religious point of view is something I can’t talk about. It goes against my belief system to talk publicly about my own spiritual beliefs.
I am a spiritual person. I’m a Catholic. I treat my patients, the dead patients, as live patients. I believe there is life after death. And I talk to my patients. I talk to them, not loudly but quietly in my heart when I look at them. Before I do an autopsy, I must have a visual contact with the face.
I talk to Allah, I pray to him.
I don’t like giving interviews unless I have something to talk about. Why bore people and why bore media?
The less you talk, the more you’re listened to.
Speaking is the one trait in which woman is superior to man. Consider what happens when a couple argues. The man tries to talk to the woman. The stupid fool – he can never win.
Talk sense to a fool and he calls you foolish.
Sometimes people mistake the way I talk for what I am thinking.
I don’t know if I believe in love at first sight, but of course I believe in two people having chemistry right away. A girl should be really easy to talk to. When I lose track of time because we’ve been talking, I think that’s really fun.
I’m trying to talk to my kids in Japanese, because I’m not a pro English speaker. My wife speaks to them in English. That’s her first language. I don’t want my kids to feel the same as me when I was studying English. It was so frustrating.
If one could only teach the English how to talk, and the Irish how to listen, society here would be quite civilized.
I’m 21 years old, and it’s kind of uncomfortable for me to talk about, but I’m in the 1 percent as far as my income and tax bracket. But now that I’m here, there’s no amount of money you can wave in front of my face that will make me understand depriving people of human rights.
If you have that belief – pure belief in your heart – that you want to be successful then you can talk to your mind and your mind will control you to be successful.

This is my first opportunity to visit this part of North Africa, so I am going to be able to go back home and talk about this beautiful country and encourage Americans to travel here.

When we report stories, we don’t just want to talk to people who did the right thing. We want to talk to people who did the wrong thing.
Don’t let people talk you into what they think is you.
Most rock journalism is people who can’t write, interviewing people who can’t talk, for people who can’t read.
Men don’t come up to you to just talk. We come up to you with a plan. We’re looking across the room at you, and we don’t care about your hopes and dreams. We don’t care about what your future holds. We saw something we wanted.
One of the things you learn in football is that you’re only as good as your last outing. I don’t like to reflect on what we’ve done in the past. I’m not a very good storyteller, for one thing. I’d disappoint you. When it’s time, I’ll talk about the good old days. But it’s a sign of old age, reveling in the past.
We talk about, ‘Wow, thank God that we were out when we were, because it was much easier then.’ There wasn’t paparazzi following you every step of your day, every move you make.
In the dime stores and bus stations, people talk of situations, read books, repeat quotations, draw conclusions on the wall.
You can’t just walk away when somebody recognizes you. You have to take some time out and talk to them. It’s not a waste of time – I just love talking to people. And I don’t do this to sell records. The truth is, I do what I do because I love it.
I think the success of a talk show depends on how true it is to the personality of the person hosting it. The shows I really admire, like ‘Oprah‘ and ‘Ellen,’ are distinctively like their hosts, so I think my show will be successful only if we try to stay consistent to my own sense of myself.
When you talk about a great actor, you’re not talking about Tom Cruise. His whole behavior is so shocking. It’s inappropriate and vulgar and absolutely unacceptable to use your private life to sell anything commercially, but I think it’s kind of a sickness.
I’ll talk to any stranger about everything. I’m not guarded.
Listen, if you don’t talk big game, you never get anywhere. If you don’t think big, you don’t get big. Some people call it egotistical, some people call it high hopes, some people call it confidence. It’s all in how you want to dissect it.
If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.
Just talk to me as a father – not what the Constitution says. What do you feel?
At some point in time, we’re going to have to stop addressing the kneeling, and we’re going to have to start addressing what led Colin Kaepernick to kneel. That’s the issue that nobody wants to talk about.
Talk about a dream, try to make it real.
