Eddie Van Halen

I saw ‘Taxi Driver,’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ kind of saved my life. The scene where Robert De Niro is looking at himself in the mirror saying, ‘You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Who the hell else are you talkin’ to?’ That’s the scene that changed my life by changing my attitude about acting.

Anne Hathaway

Steven Biko

Vampires are so old that they don’t need to impress anyone anymore. They’re comfortable in their own skin. It’s this enigmatic strength that’s very romantic and old-fashioned. I think it goes back to something of a Victorian attitude of finding a strong man who’s going to look after his woman.

Pauline Neville-Jones

In terms of work I’ve always had a Bad Attitude in that I won’t work anywhere which requires me to work strict hours or follow a dress code. I don’t know if that’s an Asperger’s thing or not, I think it’s just being reasonable.

Bram Cohen

Sid Vicious began the age of participation in which everyone could be the artist. Sid proved that you don’t have to play well to be the star. You can play badly, or not even at all. I endorsed that attitude. If you can’t write songs, no problem – simply steal one and change it to your taste.

Malcolm Mclaren

The last of human freedoms – the ability to chose one’s attitude in a given set of circumstances.

E. F. Schumacher

I think failure is nothing more than life’s way of nudging you that you are off course. My attitude to failure is not attached to outcome, but in not trying. It is liberating. Most people attach failure to something not working out or how people perceive you. This way, it is about answering to yourself.

Sara Blakely

Canadians tend to be a bit more religious than most Europeans – though not more than the Poles or Ukrainians. Most important, their attitude to immigration and ethnic minorities is more positive than that of most Europeans.

I kind of resent this attitude of men that we somehow must always look good.

Sharon Gless

I think music is the greatest art form that exists, and I think people listen to music for different reasons, and it serves different purposes.

Aleksander Kwasniewski

Antony Sher

The purely agitational attitude is not good enough for a detailed consideration of a subject.

Jawaharlal Nehru

It’s not too good to have this attitude in F1. It could be a disadvantage.

If you’re looking for can-do, earthy-crunchy attitude then you’ve got to go to Wisconsin.

Dar Williams

Attitude is attitude, whether you’re a West Coast gangster or East Coast gangster, you know?

What was past was past. I suppose that was the general attitude.

Kirstie Alley

Films for TV have to be much closer to the book, mainly because the objective with a TV movie that translates literature is to get the audience, after seeing this version, to pick up the book and read it themselves.

Sue Wicks

Today’s youth are told to get rich or die trying and they really shouldn’t take that attitude forward with them.

Dan Marino

And I tell you, having girls has made me a much better man. I have friends who are fathers, but they only have boys, and they have the same attitude toward women they always had, you know? And I don’t play that… My girls, you mess with them? I will bury you underground.

Diane Wakoski

Norman Vincent Peale

Gene Barry

I failed the LSAT. Basically, if I had not failed, I’d have been a lawyer and there would be no Spanx. I think failure is nothing more than life’s way of nudging you that you are off course. My attitude to failure is not attached to outcome, but in not trying. It is liberating.

Sara Blakely

My attitude is never to be satisfied, never enough, never.

Duke Ellington

But I do think that we approach music, in of itself, with a religious attitude.

Eric Davis

Jack Dee

Coaches will eventually notice a great attitude, and they respect that.

Yani Tseng

Denise Mina

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Leadership is one of the things I really strive to excel in in my life.

Constant, gentle pressure is my preferred technique for leadership, guidance, and coaching.

Danny Meyer

The American president has a peculiar leadership responsibility to speak out for freedom.

Oliver North

Getting in touch with your true self must be your first priority.

Tom Hopkins

Michael Gove

The test of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.

James Buchanan

I see The Rock running in 2020 and being a two-term president. I think he would be great, and I’m joking when I say I think Stephanie McMahon wouldn’t be a fine president of the United States. I think she’s got the leadership qualities. I see those two as potential candidates, and I see Kane as a congressional leader.

Mick Foley

Leadership experts and the public alike extol the virtues of transformational leaders – those who set out bold objectives and take risks to change the world. We tend to downplay ‘transactional’ leaders, whose goals are more modest, as mere managers.

Angela Ahrendts

In the long march of history, at least two poles of attraction and antagonism have been the norm in world politics. Rarely has only one nation carried the burden of leadership. The unipolar world of the 21st century, dominated for the past two decades by the United States, is a historical anomaly.

Eskinder Nega

I believe it is time for new leadership that is able to leave the ’70s behind.

Kate Klise

He who is prudent and lies in wait for an enemy who is not, will be victorious.

Kevin Rollins

Great leadership can be a difficult thing to pin down and understand. You know a great leader when you’re working for one, but even they can have a hard time articulating what it is that makes their leadership so effective.

Travis Bradberry

I also know that there have been many times in our history when the proximity of an election has induced exactly the kind of leadership and consensus-building that produce progress in our democracy.

Tom Daschle

Governments follow their people. A great deal has to do with the vision of the leadership of governments.

Margaret Hamburg

I am the wealthiest man, not just in Europe, but in the whole world. I collect emotions. I am wealthy in that the people of Russia have twice entrusted me with the leadership of a great nation such as Russia – I believe that is my greatest wealth.

Vladimir Putin

The fact that companies are getting into building power plants that collect their own CO2 on-site shows there’s some leadership in that industry. Some industries have seen the writing on the wall: that carbon will have to be managed.

Klaus Lackner

The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.

Very often, we think of leadership being at the very top of an organisation. I think what’s unique about ABG is that we have a very strong cadre of leaders across the organisation who are highly empowered and therefore play a very major role in the growth and evolution of the organization.

Kumar Mangalam Birla

Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration. Impact involves getting results, influence is about spreading the passion you have for your work, and you have to inspire team-mates and customers.

Brad Wenstrup

Leaders grasp nettles.

David Ogilvy

We expect our leaders to be godlike. But I feel that when people try to sanctify leadership, it puts it out of the realm of regular people. And that’s where the greatest leaders come from – from the people.

Katori Hall

Why – because as a oil and gas small business owner – I know if someone is not doing their job, they should not get paid. Again leadership by example.

Jeff Landry

The task of leadership is not to put greatness into humanity, but to elicit it, for the greatness is already there.

Bono

We were hoping Obama would reclaim moral leadership for America. That failed.

Lech Walesa

Obama is thoroughly mixed up with all these things he’s got. He’s got to solve Libya. He’s got to solve Afghanistan. He’s everywhere. And this nation, I don’t know why it’s not showing the leadership and capacity to attend different issues at the same time.

Vicente Fox

We are watching industries crumble, Wall Street firms disappear, unemployment spike, and unprecedented government intervention. And our designated opinion leaders want to know: Is Obama up this week? Is he down? And is his leadership style more like Bill Clinton’s, or Abraham Lincoln’s?

Thomas Frank

As a former member of JWA’s management team, and more recently as a director, I am delighted to have the opportunity now to take the reins of leadership of the company.

Helen Johnson-Leipold

Ninety percent of leadership is the ability to communicate something people want.

Dianne Feinstein

One of the main ways that leadership stays in power is by, in various ways, convincing people that they should just let those who are in government govern: ‘Trust us. Trust me.

Viggo Mortensen

Leadership is about making the right decision and the best decision before, sometimes, it becomes entirely popular.

Martin O’Malley

David Joseph Schwartz

You have to think anyway, so why not think big?

Donald Trump

In ‘Henry V,’ the story of the assumption of true and responsible leadership by Henry I think is hard-won. He has to lose friends; he has to risk his life.

Kenneth Branagh

Go as far as you can see; when you get there, you’ll be able to see farther.

J. P. Morgan

I am convinced that your Mayor must take the leadership role in education too.

Alan Autry

Leaders must encourage their organizations to dance to forms of music yet to be heard.

I think for leadership positions, emotional intelligence is more important than cognitive intelligence. People with emotional intelligence usually have a lot of cognitive intelligence, but that’s not always true the other way around.

John Mackey

The sharp employ the sharp.

Douglas William Jerrold

The signs of outstanding leadership appear primarily among the followers. Are the followers reaching their potential? Are they learning? Serving? Do they achieve the required results? Do they change with grace? Manage conflict?

One of the tests of leadership is the ability to recognize a problem before it becomes an emergency.

Arnold H. Glasow

Zach Wamp

I vote my conscience first and my constituents next, regardless of the direction of our leadership.

Tom Graves

Actions, not words, are the ultimate results of leadership.

Bill Owens

Leadership in telecommunications is also essential, since we are now in the age of e-commerce.

Michael Oxley

If a window of opportunity appears, don’t pull down the shade.

Tom Peters

The Republican Party is the Grand Old Party. It’s made enormous contributions to the success of our country. And it is a party that has embraced its leadership role when it has had the majority or the White House.

Nancy Pelosi

The intelligence investigation under the leadership of Senator Church, which I know has helped cause this investigation by you, points out that the agencies did not disclose certain facts to us and that certain plots were going on.

John Sherman Cooper

A good part of my leadership skills is crafted from learning from experiences early in my career that were not positive experiences.

John Lasseter

I think as far as any kind of pressure on a football team or on an individual in professional sports really depends not only on that individual but the leadership they have on the team and the leadership they have on the coaching staff. A lot of times, they can divert some of those pressures off of the individual and off of the team.

Jimmy Johnson

There is a crisis of leadership and governance in Africa, and we must face it.

Mo Ibrahim

Hold yourself responsible for a higher standard than anybody expects of you. Never excuse yourself.

Henry Ward Beecher

I would assert that highly effective leaders are made more than they’re born. Every leader I know who’s been highly effective has worked hard at it, and they’ve been students of it. The more you’re a student of leadership, the more you figure out what works for you and the more effective you’re going to be.

Douglas Conant

I hope telling the story of how I went from being a single mom to serving in the Texas State Senate to running for governor will remind others that with the right leadership in government, where you start has nothing to do with how far you go.

Wendy Davis

We carry out our work under the leadership of the government.

Li Shufu

As much as you don’t like disciplining your kids, you have to sometimes. Kids want that structure, that leadership, that guidance. I think that’s what I try to give my children.

Mark Teixeira

President Obama chose politics over leadership. ‘Hope’ and ‘Change’ have become bait-and-switch.

Lindsey Graham

All Americans and freedom-loving people around the world owe President Reagan our deepest gratitude for his strong, principled leadership that ended the Cold War and brought freedom to millions of people.

Jim Ramstad

I think leadership is just something that comes really natural to me.

Carson Wentz

The Congress leadership always denied responsibilities to me both within the government and within the party organisation… They would always tell me my image as a Hindu leader was a constraint on my capacity as a political leader.

Satpal Maharaj

This Congress is simply not doing its job under Republican leadership.

Jim Cooper

The mission that unites all of the programs of the Teach For All global network is that of cultivating the leadership capacity critical to ultimately ensuring educational opportunity for all.

Wendy Kopp

A lot of people relate leadership to formalities. They believe that leadership is about being professional and strong and always right and being a booming voice. I just don’t buy that. I think that leadership is a soft skill; it’s a people skill.

Jason Fried

We have treated our most serious adversaries, such as Iran and North Korea, in the most juvenile manner – by giving them the silent treatment. In so doing, we have weakened, not strengthened, our bargaining position and our leadership.

Theodore C. Sorensen

Year after year, President Bush has broken his campaign promises on college aid. And year after year, the Republican leadership in Congress has let him do it.

Sherrod Brown

There are good leaders who actively guide and bad leaders who actively misguide. Hence, leadership is about persuasion, presentation and people skills.

Shiv Khera

The only safe ship in a storm is leadership.

Faye Wattleton

And this administration and this House leadership have said, quote-unquote, they will stop at nothing to pass this health care bill. And now they’ve gotten rid of me and it will pass. You connect the dots.

Eric Massa

Among the qualities most needed among those who aspire to true leadership in the fostering of peace and goodwill among the nations and in overcoming racial and religious antagonism is the cooperative spirit and objective.

John Mott

At HBO, my leadership had to inspire and gain the respect of employees in a large company with over 100 external business relationships in dozens of countries.

James Costos

They said it was impossible to touch the third rail of politics, to take on public-sector unions and to reform a pension and health benefits system that was headed to bankruptcy. But with bipartisan leadership, we saved taxpayers $132 billion dollars over 30 years and saved retirees their pensions. We did it.

Chris Christie

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.

Peter Drucker

Twenty-eight years in business and you understand the importance of problem solving and the importance of efficiency, because if you don’t become efficient, you don’t run a business well, and you are out of business. And I think some of those principles could be applied to leadership in Washington.

Steve Daines

Washington doesn’t have just a spending problem, or just an entitlement problem, or just a taxing problem. We have a leadership problem. Fix that, and the first three problems are solved.

Mark McKinnon

As a former minority leader who became the first Republican Speaker of the House in Florida since Reconstruction, I know that leadership is not an easy task.

Dan Webster

At an unprecedented time with the worst attack ever on our soil, our President displayed extraordinary determination, leadership and resolve when history was thrust upon him and the United States.

Olympia Snowe

Ever since Israel has been a nation the United States has provided the leadership. Every president down to the ages has done this in a fairly balanced way, including George Bush senior, Gerald Ford, and others including myself and Bill Clinton.

Jimmy Carter

This is not a political issue. I know Florida’s leadership has talked about a real commitment to helping our veterans. Now it’s time for them to show it.

Ted Deutch

The message of the free world to any potential Palestinian leadership should be a simple one: Embrace democratic reform and we will embrace you.

Natan Sharansky

I’ve always been about the power of a woman – accentuating the positive, deleting the negative, whether you’re talking her body, her voice or her leadership.

Donna Karan

It’s not a matter of if economies around the world becoming low-carbon, but when and how: through struggle and strife or through advancement and progressive leadership. Larry Elliot described it today as the ‘Green New Deal.’ It’s a leadership we in Britain can provide, and from which our economy can benefit.

Lucy Powell

To meet the expectations of the majority of our people, and to open up new vistas of economic opportunity so that the aspirations of Nigerians can stand a fair chance of being fulfilled in a lifetime, there must be a truly committed leadership in a democratic Nigeria.

Ibrahim Babangida

Leadership is standing with your people. People say you have to live to fight another day, but sometimes you have to show you are a true leader.

Leymah Gbowee

Anyone can show exceptional leadership ability in easy times. When all’s going to plan, anyone can be inspirational/excellent/innovative and strong. The real question is how do you show up when everything’s falling apart?

Robin S. Sharma

A significant number of pages and sentences that the administration wants to keep in a classified status have already been released publicly, some of it by public statements of the leadership of the CIA and the FBI.

Bob Graham

I feel fantastically excited that we have a leader who fought for the leadership without compromising his quite challenging view that the party has to change.

Leonard Slatkin

When poor people get involved in a long conflict, such as a strike or a civil rights drive, and the pressure increases each day, there is a deep need for spiritual advice. Without it, we see families crumble, leadership weaken, and hard workers grow tired.

Cesar Chavez

Great companies in the way they work, start with great leaders.

Steve Ballmer

Populist promises to reverse every tough decision are nothing but empty rhetoric, irresponsible leadership, and bad politics. They are not the solution to Ireland’s problems.

Eric Hoffer

As a vibrant force in civil society, women continue to press for their rights, equal participation in decision-making, and the upholding of the principles of the revolution by the highest levels of leadership in Egypt.

Michelle Bachelet

I think Mr. Clarke had a tendency to interfere too much with the activities of the CIA, and our leadership at the senior level let him interfere too much. So criticism from him I kind of wear as a badge of honor.

Michael Scheuer

The sentiments in Hawaii about Washington’s failure of leadership are no different than the rest of the country.

Ed Case

A leadership culture is one where everyone thinks like an owner, a CEO or a managing director. It’s one where everyone is entrepreneurial and proactive.

Robin S. Sharma

You’re only as good as the people you hire.

Ray Kroc

It is the responsibility of leadership to provide opportunity, and the responsibility of individuals to contribute.

William Pollard

The more that social democracy develops, grows, and becomes stronger, the more the enlightened masses of workers will take their own destinies, the leadership of their movement, and the determination of its direction into their own hands.

Joe Donnelly

Leadership is intangible, and therefore no weapon ever designed can replace it.

Omar N. Bradley

I’ve been a medical and public health professional as well as a mother. I became skilled at juggling a number of priorities and competing interests. Like many other female leaders, I’ve tried to serve as a role model for the young women at my organization who are trying to balance a high-level leadership position and a family.

Margaret Hamburg

Under the leadership of this President, the state of the union is not strong. We are being pulled apart rather than pulling together. Our democracy is suffering from the choices being made, and yet we are offered the same tired excuses and unrealistic analyses.

Jose Serrano

A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.

Lao Tzu

What we heard today was not fiscal leadership from our Commander-in-Chief, what we heard today was a political broadside from our Campaigner-in-Chief.

Paul Ryan

I have the right temperament. I have the right leadership. I’ve built an incredible company. I went to a great school. I came out – I built an incredible company. I wrote the number one selling business book of all time: ‘Trump: The Art of the Deal.’

Donald Trump

One of the lessons of leadership worth emphasizing is that you want to get to know other great leaders and take their advice. At some point in your development, it’s only people who’ve been in the seat of having to be leaders who can help you in a deep way.

Jim Yong Kim

A leader is a dealer in hope.

Napoleon Bonaparte

It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.

Nelson Mandela

I have spent years as a leadership coach to the very wealthy and have been able to get behind the eyes of some of the world’s best, studying the minute details of what makes a person great.

Robin S. Sharma

The Washington leadership has put aside non-proliferation programmes and devoted its energies and resources to driving the country to war by extraordinary deceit, then trying to manage the catastrophe it created in Iraq.

Noam Chomsky

Preseason football is hard to evaluate. It’s never going to be clean for the quarterbacks. You have to overcome the ugly plays and be productive. It’s a component of leadership that is necessary. The guys that make it in the league survive that.

Mike McCarthy

In 2006 it was a horrible election year, and, you know, I lost. But I lost because I continued to be a constant conservative, and the last six years I was someone who was a national figure in the sense that I was the third ranking Republican in leadership and I had just run President Bush’s campaign in Pennsylvania.

Rick Santorum

Empowerment isn’t a buzzword among leadership gurus. It’s a proven technique where leaders give their teams the appropriate training, tools, resources, and guidance to succeed.

John Rampton

Leadership is about vision and responsibility, not power.

Seth Berkley

I watched my parents in their leadership callings in the Church and the community. We just grew up knowing that we should serve and do whatever we could do to make things grow.

Margaret D. Nadauld

Germany must be a country which generates political ideas and leadership, which is capable of compromise, which is sovereign and yet knows that it needs its partners on both sides of the Atlantic.

Martin McGuinness

I think that our leadership, Mitch McConnell and John Boehner, are taking the right approach.

Randi Weingarten

There is no substitute for American leadership and exceptionalism.

Michael T. Flynn

I want to organize so that women see ourselves as people who are entitled to power, entitled to leadership.

Patricia Ireland

If you want to get the most out of your men, give them a break! Don’t make them work completely in the dark. If you do, they won’t do a bit more than they have to. But if they comprehend, they’ll work like mad.

Chesty Puller

My attitude is never to be satisfied, never enough, never.

Duke Ellington

There is no international problem that can be addressed or solved without the engagement and leadership of the United States and everybody in the world knows that, its just fact of life. So sometimes I think we could conduct ourselves with a little more humility.

Robert M. Gates

The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.

Harvey S. Firestone

People more than ever since I can remember are concerned about being out of step and out of line with their political party and won’t cross over. There is nobody, man or woman, who wants to be left out, and people are fearful of that. People are fearful of their leadership as well.

Gary Ackerman

The action of Rosa Parks, the words and leadership of Dr. King inspired me. I was deeply inspired. I wanted to do something.

John Lewis

The longer we go without strong leadership from the Administration and until we see significant progress in the day-to-day lives of the Iraqi people, the more difficult it will become to sustain the support of the American people and Congress for the current course.

Dennis Cardoza

At that time, the army leadership said the implementation of this agreement would allow everyone, including the IRA, to take its political objectives forward by peaceful and democratic means.

Gerry Adams

We know that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has some very dangerous, very important leaders who are tied directly to the top leadership of al Qaeda central, including a man who was formerly Osama bin Laden’s secretary.

Richard Engel

The Chinese leadership hoped that the world would soon forget the Tiananmen Square massacre. Our job in Congress is to ensure that we never forget those who lost their lives in Tiananmen Square that day or the pro-democracy cause for which they fought.

Tom Lantos

We had a military and political leadership at that period which was genuinely deluded.

Neil Sheehan

For me, leadership is making a difference. It’s using your agency to bring about change.

Melanne Verveer

The cautious seldom err.

Confucius

Washington’s answer to a self-inflicted financial crisis reminded Americans why they so deeply distrust the political class. The ‘fiscal cliff’ process was secretive and sloppy, and the nation’s so-called leadership lacked the political courage to address our root problems: joblessness and debt.

Ron Fournier

Through leadership of the fight against French colonialism, Ho Chi Minh had made a name for himself in the international political arena.

Nguyen Cao Ky

C. J. Mahaney

The great leaders have always stage-managed their effects.

Charles de Gaulle

Enter the candidates on horseback: While military leaders can sometimes be dangerous in politics, our best generals and admirals embody the democratic values and leadership skills for which the country is yearning.

At the end the day because I believe so strongly in leadership, what I look for first, what I try to assess, is integrity.

Kenneth Chenault

The key to being a good manager is keeping the people who hate me away from those who are still undecided.

Casey Stengel

Showing leadership doesn’t mean every employee will run the organization; that would lead to chaos. Businesses do need someone to set the vision and then lead the team to it.

Robin S. Sharma

I think that all areas of the budget have to be scrubbed. Clearly the entitlement issues have to be reformed and that’s an issue that’s going to require I think some strong bipartisan cooperation and leadership.

John Thune

Across Africa there is what I call a colonialist mentality or orthodoxy. Orthodoxy in the sense that a lot of things have gone wrong in Africa in the post-colonial period. And time and time again, any time something went wrong, the leadership claims that it was never their fault.

George Ayittey

Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.

Dwight D. Eisenhower

When I decided to leave the military, I realized that the skills I acquired there were transferable to the commercial world both in leadership and the information technology field. I made the decision to move to Oracle because of its strong leadership role.

Love for Music Quotes Latest 2020 Collection [Part 2]

About myself I have no great illusions. I know what I am. I know what I’m good at. I know what I ain’t. I’m always hoping to surprise myself. But I do have a love of music and I do love to communicate it, and that’s the best I can do, really. And I can raise a good family, too.

I just fell in love with his music. I thought Yanni was Japanese. I didn’t have any idea what a Yanni was. I just thought I was in love with a Japanese man who wrote beautiful music.

Linda Evans

I’ve always loved New Orleans music. I always loved it when the Neville Brothers opened up for the Grateful Dead and the Dirty Dozen and all that.

Bill Kreutzmann

From an early age, I was infatuated with music. I always loved it and was always dancing or playing something.

Tyler Farr

People love gospel music. It’s calming. It’s soothing. It gets right to the point of whatever you’re dealing with.

Yolanda Adams

My advice to young people wanting to make music and to be in this industry is to really spend your time making music. Make so much music you have no friends. Make music. Figure out what it is you love, and… because if you’re making cool art, then everything else will fall into line.

Lorde

While I love musical theater, it wasn’t the right fit for me. It’s so competitive, and I was at such a disadvantage, having started performing when I was 17.

Jack Falahee

The biggest compliments I’ve heard about ‘That Metal Show’ are the ones from people that say that they don’t even listen to this kind of music, but, ‘We love watching the show.’

Eddie Trunk

I’m actually the son of Mary Guibert. My mother was born in the Panama Canal zone and came to America when she was five with my grandmother and grandfather, and that was the family I knew. Everybody sang; everybody had songs all the time, and they loved music.

Jeff Buckley

I love a lot of things, and I’m pretty much obsessive about most things I do, whether it be gardening, or architecture, or music. I’d be an obsessive hairdresser.

Blake Michael

I love classical music and have been playing violin since I was seven. Music helps me to express feelings in a way words often cannot.

Jane Chen

Flume

I get satisfaction out of making a meal for people that I love and having them enjoy it. But there’s not really anything in my life that I do that’s just for me that feeds my soul like music does.

Trisha Yearwood

Music is a talent given to me by God. A medium and a platform and a way to spread a message of righteousness… a message of love, a message of unity.

Stephen Marley

Music is always there, but if you’re asking me my first love, it’s film.

O’Shea Jackson, Jr.

Elvis Presley’s music never meant anything to me. Mambo was the music I loved – it spoke to me.

Arne Glimcher

Grant Gustin

I have never denied my background or my culture. I have taught my child to embrace her Mexican heritage, to love my first language, Spanish, to learn about Mexican history, music, folk art, food, and even the Mexican candy I grew up with.

I’ve always been interested in music. In high school, I did a lot of musical theater, and I loved it.

Rebecca Ferguson

I like Sam Smith and Taylor Swift. I love pop music, but I also like Sam Smith’s slow songs. That would be more to dance to. I think dancers like different genres of music, compared to just a regular person.

Maddie Ziegler

I’m very much into the Gypsy Kings. It’s rumba and very festive, very passionate music, rhythmic guitar, passionate singing about love from happy people.

Sofia Milos

I like writing different types of music. I like writing Christian music. I like collaborating with Christian artists. We have a Christian following. I love writing kids’ music.

John Tesh

I would really love to do a musical, I don’t know in what capacity but something funny.

Billie Piper

Willow and I definitely talked about doing a collaboration. She really loves rock music, so she wants to come on and get crazy with me on a track. Which I would love, because she has a fantastic voice.

Jada Pinkett Smith

Music – opera particularly – is a process which is endurable or successful only if it is achieved by people who love to collaborate.

Sarah Caldwell

It’s the coolest part about writing music. I don’t know how other people work, but so much is derived from some amalgamation of all these different songs that I love. That’s why they jump all over the place.

Nate Ruess

I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others.

James Taylor

Music is passionate. It’s love for me.

Brandy Norwood

I love the fact that people can relate to what I’m saying, even if it’s not for the same subject I was writing about. That is the power of real music and real expression.

Corey Taylor

I loved the last album, and it was one hundred percent me. But this is like me two years later, who understands a little bit more about music and understands a little bit more about making an album. I wrote a lot more.

Jennifer Lopez

I grew up in a community of theatre, and I always loved musicals. From a young age, the first present I ever wanted was a video camera. For me it was a great outlet to be creative.

Christopher Egan

The best thing about being a DJ is making people happy. There is nothing like seeing people get up from a table to dance or the expression on their face when they hear a song they love. I also love to educate people on music they have never heard.

Chelsea Leyland

When the band begins to get a name for themselves, and the writers get assigned to bands, they’ll hit somebody who just doesn’t like that kind of music, or they love hip hop but hate guitar rock.

Kim Deal

My mom is a very religious woman. So when I began recording music, I was afraid she wouldn’t accept it. But when I played her a song, she loved it.

Leon Bridges

For me, great music doesn’t just have to fall into one category or one genre and I love appreciating all kinds of music.

Taylor Swift

When I was a kid, I used to listen to my Emerson radio late at night under the covers. I started by listening to jazz in the late 1940s and then vocal harmony groups like the Four Freshmen, the Modernaires and the Hi-Lo’s. I loved Stan Kenton’s big band – with those dark chords and musicians who could swing cool with individual sounds.

Frankie Valli

We love all kinds of music: We love pop music, we love rock music, we love R & B and country, and we just pull from all our influences. So I don’t really take offense as long as people are coming out to the shows and buying the records and becoming fans of the music. At the end of the day, the music is what’s gonna speak to you.

Charles Kelley

I love music because you can create a world through your records. I have total control over what I do and what I wear. It’s like my own world out of my imagination rather than someone giving me lines.

Jane Badler

When I was 21 or 22, I realized I was never going to be something else – I had to be a musician. I can’t commit to anything unless I love it.

Chet Faker

When I was really little, I wanted to be a taxi driver or a bus driver; I loved the fact that I could play my own music when I wanted. But I can’t imagine actually doing that now; I think I’d get bored.

Eliza Doolittle

I have always been infatuated with country music. Country music tells stories, and I’ve always loved to tell stories. I said that when I establish myself as an artist that can do pretty much anything I want to do in music, I’m going to make a country album.

R. Kelly

I love music, that it changes so much, but I also want to keep a bit of the country roots to make it country. I don’t want to go too far away from it, or I would do pop music.

Jana Kramer

I love music. I love going out dancing.

Carson Kressley

My parents believed in exposing each of their children to an abundance of varied activities in the hope they would find something they loved. They each had found a passion – Dad with his music and Mom with her horses – so it was natural for them to encourage experimentation.

Dorothy Hamill

I can’t help other people’s frustrations. I don’t owe people anything. If people would like to come to my concerts, I’d love them to come. And if they like the music that I make, I love that, too. But I do not make music for other people. I make it to please myself.

David Gilmour

I’m just excited that I get to put out the music I love versus music just for the sake of it.

Estelle

I love my own music.

Alicia Keys

For me, one I love the 80’s, I love 80’s music, I’m sort of a baby of the 80’s, I grew up in the 80s.

Will Estes

I read whenever possible, and I buy books all the time, sometimes online, but mostly from bookshops. I love literature. If you want to understand art, it’s important to understand what is also happening in literature, in music, in science, in architecture.

Hans-Ulrich Obrist

I’ve struggled with an identity sometimes; I don’t know what exactly I am. I love so many types of music, and I don’t want to commit to going down one road.

Brandon Flowers

Music is very powerful and can make you feel whatever it is. If you listen to gospel, you’re going to feel thankful, and you’re going to want to call up people that you hate and tell them that you love them. When you listen to sexual music, it gets you in the mood.

R. Kelly

People who love R&B will love my music, people who love rock will love my music. It’s soulful, it’s pop. It’s a sound that relates to everyone.

Jessica White

I like hearing the sort of harmonies people get into in different parts of the world. I love music that has a sense of allure to it, and exotic tunes. That’s what I’m drawn to.

Bria Skonberg

Country music is important to me, and I love it, but it’s not my whole life.

George Strait

I became a musician because I love music, and that is what has sustained me; it’s not because I thought it was a great way to make a living. Music saved my life.

David Sanborn

Italians have always had a high savings rate. They love putting their money into their own government bonds – even more than in houses, stocks and gold. The higher rates climb, the happier they are to invest. So if austerity plans drive rates up, it’s music to Italian ears.

Kenneth Fisher

Every time I tried writing my own songs, they would come out very country. I couldn’t fight it, and the more I listened to country music, the more I loved it, and it just became very natural.

Hayley Orrantia

I love pop music. It’s not easy to write a good pop song.

John Lydon

What love is to man, music is to the arts and to mankind. Music is love itself – it is the purest, most ethereal language of passion, showing in a thousand ways all possible changes of color and feeling; and though true in only a single instance, it yet can be understood by thousands of men – who all feel differently.

Carl Maria von Weber

This isn’t about the money. This is just for me. I love music.

Justin Timberlake

I have visualizations where I’m living in a really cool place – probably outside of town – with a really dope studio where I can record music or film things. Just have my own mini production house. That’s really the thing I’d love to end up with the most and only do gigs when I needed to and also amass a little bit of a crew around me.

Reggie Watts

I’d love to be on a TV series someday, but I believe you get the jobs that you’re meant to get. If the job that I’m meant to get is another musical or another play or film or TV show, I’m just happy to keep working.

Stark Sands

The English may not like music, but they absolutely love the noise it makes.

Thomas Beecham

‘Mixtape’ sounds retro! I used to make lots of mixed tapes. It was one of those ’90s things – every girl gave them to her best friend. I remember exchanging a few with a boy on a bus when I was 14. I thought he hated me, but in hindsight, maybe he was in love with me, because he gave me the best music.

Hannah Ware

I love writing songs. I love doing my radio show and talking to the fans and listening to what they have to say, but there’s a certain responsibility that comes along with being given the gift of music. I take that seriously, but at the same time I try to use it to do something that makes a difference in a positive way.

Randy Owen

I love sad songs. They say so much. I love country music but even the happy songs sound really sad.

Beth Ditto

I’m not a person who writes really abstract things with oblique references. I look at abstraction like I look at condiments. Give me some Tabasco sauce, some ketchup, some mayonnaise. I love all of that. Put it on a trumpet. I’ve just got to have the ketchup and Tabasco sauce. That’s my attitude about musical philosophy.

Wynton Marsalis

I was drawn to love songs, but I was just drawn to great music – no matter if it’s hip-hop, pop, R&B or whether it’s rock n’ roll or country. It could be a Garth Brooks song, and if it’s a smash, then I’ll love the different wordplay and different melodies. That’s what I’m a fan of – great music.

Nayvadius Cash

I was always that girl who loved music and thought of music as an escape route.

Rita Ora

In hip-hop, what you have is you have a lot of formulaic-type bands or rappers that come up. They saw something on the radio, and they want to mimic that formula. And that’s just boring. I don’t wanna record something just to make money; I want to record something to enjoy it and have fun because I’m a music lover.

Sir Mix-a-Lot

Confidence, as a teenager? Because I knew what I loved. I loved to read; I loved to listen to music; and I loved cats. Those three things. So, even though I was an only kid, I could be happy because I knew what I loved.

Haruki Murakami

I’ve always loved musical theater. It’s a bit of a family tradition.

Trey Anastasio

Music allows the great opportunity to play with people who turned you on and you love.

Herbie Mann

If people like your music, you can’t guarantee they’re going to love you.

Annie Lennox

I’m always writing. And, I mean, I always counsel people when they call me a musician: I really do not have the skills of a musician. I really don’t think like a musician, though I love music and I perform and sing.

Patti Smith

Nas always been my favorite rapper, but 50 Cent, he changed my way of thinking about music ’cause he was so detailed in his music, I knew that wasn’t lying. I never felt Tupac that way; I never felt Biggie that way. I love Nas music, but I never felt and believed like, ‘This is for real.’ ‘Cause I grew up that gangsta lifestyle.

Schoolboy Q

I love to do comedy, but music is really my heart.

Paul Shaffer

I’d always wanted to work in the studio and experiment with sounds. Things that I’m really influenced by and that I love are like The Beatles and Radiohead, and all those records by bands whose music is really involved.

Regina Spektor

I write music people enjoy playing and listening to, and I have a group that loves playing the music.

Chuck Mangione

I’ve got to hear the rhythm of the sentences; I want the music of the prose. I want to see ordinary things transformed not by the circumstances in which I see them but by the language with which they’re described. That’s what I love when I read.

Alice McDermott

I always loved rock guitar. I just never put it together that that’s what I’d end up doing. I had no aspirations to be a musician, but I picked up a guitar for two seconds and haven’t put it down since.

Slash

The common denominator is a love of music.

Natasha Bedingfield

It was my love for the guitar that first got me into music and singing.

Ed Sheeran

After my touring life, I’d love to be more involved with charity. It gives me a lot of fulfillment, you know? I would love to get people who are into my music more active in charity work. In the future, when I have more time, I’d love to do spend more time on that.

Tiesto

I love X-Games music.

Jon Anderson

The moment artists can just do what they love to do then music will go right back to where it used to be. I mean back in the ’60s and ’70s and ’80s, that’s what it was.

Akon

Snatam Kaur is a yogini, and I find her music deeply spiritual. I feel more love and I feel more peace when I listen to her music.

John Mackey

Country music tells stories, and I’ve always loved to tell stories.

R. Kelly

People get to a certain age and success that they stop being curious. I’m still curious because I haven’t really had that success. I’ve never done a record to catch whatever the latest sound is. It’s my love of music, eclectic-ness, and the music that I heard my entire life that seeps in. That’s what you’re hearing.

Jill Sobule

After ‘Mosaic,’ I think a lot of people didn’t know what my next record was going to be. And that’s what I love. I just love doing music because I’m not going to follow the patterns and formulas of Music Row.

Ricky Skaggs

Music is my first love and the thing that I feel extremely connected to. I feel like I still have a long way to go within that in terms of being able to perform and write songs. But, yeah, I really hope ‘The Possession’ opens doors for me to do more acting, because I really enjoyed it.

Matisyahu

I always enjoyed participating in artistic endeavors, and I remember in high school participating in chorus, drama and singing madrigals, mainly because they were an easy A. I loved being in plays and musicals too, but you didn’t really get credit for those.

Roger Bart

Mainly what I learned from Buddy… was an attitude. He loved music, and he taught me that it shouldn’t have any barriers to it.

Waylon Jennings

I think it took me a while to convince Nashville that what I do is genuine and my heart’s in the right place, and I love country music.

Keith Urban

My pure love is playing music.

Jamie Cullum

If I could be a musician, I’d do it. I love singing.

Rebecca Hall

If you can show something as complicated as two people falling in love with just music and camera angles, well, just think about what you can do with football.

Steve Sabol

To re-embrace what I once loved about music has been a warming process for me, because it’s a good, earned feeling now.

Billy Corgan

I love being on the beach – it’s my favourite place. I can chill out, read, listen to music, play with my daughter.

Geri Halliwell

My success set me up for life, and it meant that I could retire from the music industry at 27 to spend time with my newborn daughter and my wife. My time away from the spotlight allowed me to rediscover my love for music, and I’m doing it for me now and no one else.

Rick Astley

When I’m doing music and I’m on the road, I love it. But once I’m home, it’s very difficult to go back out on the road.

Noel Gallagher

I love fashion. I like dressing how I feel, and my music shows how I feel – they go hand in hand. My performance style is pretty much the same as my everyday style.

Banks

Women do not like CDs of live music. We only like the original recordings. If a song sounds different from the version we fell in love with, then it’s awful.

Leslie Mann

One thing I love about Christmas music is that it has a tradition of warmth.

Zooey Deschanel

‘The Secret Garden’ was the first musical that I fell in love with when I was a kid. My mom took me to see it, and it was the first one that I owned the soundtrack to and listened to over and over again.

Allison Tolman

Don’t get me wrong: there are aspects of buying music online that I love. Instantly being able to hear a song the moment it crosses your mind? Where’s the downside? However, I do feel for those too young to remember the thrill of going record shopping.

John Niven

I enjoy listening to contemporary rock on the college stations while I’m taking long walks, love gospel and soul music, am fascinated by hip-hop and rap as the new kind of urban ‘beat’ poetry and, come to think of it, find something interesting about just any kind of music.

Oscar Hijuelos

There’s music to dance to and make love to, music to cry to. I’m starting from scratch, coming fresh. But my sound still embodies the same soulful, intricate harmonies.

El DeBarge

I’m a hybrid-genre person, which a lot of people find confusing. I grew up listening to American country music and rock n’ roll made between 1955 and 1959. The Everly Brothers and Chuck Berry were my first musical loves and are still what I am most moved by. Roy Orbison came a little bit later.

Teddy Thompson

I love Slipknot. But then I like Jao Gilberto… It’s the spirit that comes through in music.

Robert Palmer

Those who decide to use leisure as a means of mental development, who love good music, good books, good pictures, good plays, good company, good conversation – what are they? They are the happiest people in the world.

William Lyon Phelps

I love rock and opera, and I love musical theater, and I don’t want to lose any of that.

Lauren Worsham

I was really, really, really enthusiastic as a kid. I was up for anything. I was hugely into music and theatre. I was a big musical theatre kid; I loved reading.

Amanda Marshall

I would love to be in musical theater and be on Broadway. If someone were to offer me a position to do something like that, I wouldnt pass it down. Im a huge fan of musicals and I really want to do that.

Michelle Branch

In a way I spend my entire life stealing from everything – from the past, from cities I love, from where I grew up – grabbing things, taking not only from architecture but from Italy, art, writing, poetry, music.

Renzo Piano

If the king loves music, there is little wrong in the land.

Mencius

I think my style is quite grungy and punky. I love the ’90s and the music from that time, and I love punk music. I’m also a fan of mixing vintage with some high fashion, which links back to my musical taste because I tend to mix old music with newer songs.

Chelsea Leyland

A love of classical music is only partially a natural response to hearing the works performed, it also must come about by a decision to listen carefully, to pay close attention, a decision inevitably motivated by the cultural and social prestige of the art.

Charles Rosen

I don’t think I’d ever make an album of just covers because I love writing my own music.

Taylor Swift

Acting was always something I loved doing, but I didn’t know that I would pursue it professionally. I really loved doing plays at school, but I was in a rock band and ended up going to a school for music.

Jesse Johnson

No matter what I do, I can’t help but feel that I’m under a microscope. Some of it is completely silly, and some of it is meant to be hurtful. For example, a website accumulated all of my music videos to point out perceived Illuminati images. I loved that one. Of course, it was all ridiculous but funny.

Steve Aoki

I love the Country Music Hall of Fame. I don’t think it’s just a hall of fame and it’s not just a museum. It’s a schoolhouse. It’s a place where people from all across the world can come and learn about this great genre that we’re making a living out of.

Josh Turner

One thing I really love in my single, ‘Just Can’t Let You Go,’ is the beatboxing; I think it’s really cool. Also, in my music, I’m not afraid to say what I want to say. I also think it’s relatable for other girls out there.

Manika

I love that sense of change that you’d get in pop music every three minutes, every four minutes.

Danny Boyle

I love classic rock, rock and roll, that’s the top notch. I love soul – bluesy music as well.

Haley Reinhart

Music was something I was encouraged to do, which I appeared to be quite good at, but it was never a passion. Writing was always my first love.

Allan Guthrie

Musical theatre is my first love.

Laura Benanti

What I loved about country music when I was a kid was the Grand Ole Opry, was ‘Hee Haw,’ was 360 degrees of entertainment.

Laura Bell Bundy

I love Sam Mendes, but I went to see ‘Spectre’ with my kid, and the opening scene of the Dia de Muertos party, with this kind of tropical music, in downtown Mexico City, with all these people dancing like it’s the Rio de Janeiro carnival… I had to laugh.

Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu

I would love to do a musical. I would love that. I would have to find the right book, the right story, but some day I’m going to make one. I would really like to go off and direct a musical. That’s what I would really like to do when I grow up.

Steven Spielberg

I love to leave the interpretation of my music up to the listener. It’s fun to see what they’ll say it is.

Erykah Badu

Growing up, I always wanted to be in punk bands, so I’m really enjoying the harder, heavier element. It’s always been my dream to have people moshing at my gig, kind of that really feral element of the music coming out more. I love crowd-surfing.

Florence Welch

I’m making music that I love and I want to hear. At the same time, things like making money, making crazy money – you gotta find ways to reach to everybody but uplift everybody.

Tyga

I grew up in musical theatre and love to perform on stage.

A. J. McLean

A common sense of humour and a love of music is really important, as I love all types of music. You name me any genre, and I can give you a list of artists I adore.

Adam Rodriguez

I have a whole iPod full of exceptionally bad music, truly awful stuff including a disproportionate number of one hit wonders from the early ’80s and lots of hair bands. I find it utterly impossible to love a song until I know every single word, so listening to live music or new bands is pretty much out.

Lauren Weisberger

I’m an American songbook guy, though I’ve got eclectic tastes. I really love the American songbook. I’ve taken up the ukulele, and so you can play ‘Five Foot Two’ and Hawaiian music, but you can also do some of the great tunes, like ‘You Go to My Head,’ ‘I Guess I’ll Hang My Tears Out to Dry,’ ‘Taking a Chance on Love.’

Tony Danza

If I wasn’t acting, I’d try and be a footballer. I wouldn’t be a musician because I can’t write my own music. Realistically, I’d probably do something with dogs, like a vet or something. I love animals.

Jamie Blackley

My father loved poetry and music. But deep in himself he thought teaching the finest thing a person could do.

George Steiner

My two great loves are music and horses.

Betty Buckley

One of the things I love about jazz music is that intent is first and execution is second. In classical music, execution is first and intent is second, meaning that you must first learn a piece before you can truly add your interpretation to it.

Irvin Mayfield

I like challenging people. I love pop music that can just throw you off.

Kimbra

I love music.

Anwar Robinson

I’ve always loved the blues, ever since I was a kid. It has a depth to it that a lot of contemporary music doesn’t have. It has pain and suffering in it, but funny stories, too. And it is built on storytelling, which is something I really love.

Nickolas Ashford

Music I can discover a part of myself that I haven’t been able to for a long time, and acting is the opposite. I’m in love with both of them and I would never choose one over the other.

Tammin Sursok

I live in Topanga Canyon, which is like a faux-rustic enclave in Los Angeles. I love the sounds of all the critters outside – the frogs, owls, crickets, and birds. Some of the birds around here are pretty accomplished musicians. You can learn a lot from them.

Cliff Martinez

I have always loved music. My mom used to sing with my sister and I when I was younger, and I was in choirs and loved to perform, but when I was in college, I went on a study abroad to Trinidad, and while I was there, I sang backup at my first concert.

Rachel Platten

I love the company of actors, but the crazier it gets, the more I’ve come to realise how valuable my time is with my friends who work on the land or are builders or, you know, make music. Work in offices. Run shops.

Andrea Riseborough

I love to act and put on a show, but you’re playing a character all the time. For music, it’s really just me being myself.

Tinashe

Probably having fallen in love with music and movies at a young age and then first learning about writing by kind of following the path of writers like Dave Marsh and Lester Bangs and being a rock journalist.

Cameron Crowe

I love bluegrass music, I love acoustic music, and I try at the right times to push that a little bit.

Dierks Bentley

I’d love to play a musician in a film.

Marianne Faithfull

Lynyrd Skynyrd has always been a bunch of rowdy, crazy people, but we love our fans, and that’s what the music is all about: touching them. Touching them touches us.

Johnny Van Zant

I love opera, I love writing for the voice, I love telling stories with music.

Anthony Davis

I’d love to do ‘Werther.’ It’s a great opera, and the music’s so beautiful.

Stephen Costello

The type of music that I love to sing would have to be more bluesy and jazzy and more soul-like ’cause I love to belt when it comes to singing, so I guess bigger songs are what I lean more towards.

Thia Megia

I love singing. It’s who I am. When I act, I take a small part of myself and just magnify it, but when I’m singing, that’s who I am. I don’t write music, so I choose songs that I would have written.

Lainie Kazan

I haven’t traveled in Africa nearly as much as I’d like to. I’ve been there a few times, and I’d like to learn more about the various cultures in Africa. But that’s the basis point of where all of the music that I love is based upon, from Africa to Cuba to Puerto Rico to South America.

Chick Corea

I basically love classical music. I love a lot of musicians playing together and the whole culture of that, whether it’s Indian or it’s Western.

A. R. Rahman

What love is to man, music is to the arts and to mankind.

Carl Maria von Weber

I’m just lucky because my kids are grown-up – I love them, very proud of them, and we are in close contact as big-time friends, but they don’t need me that much now and I can actually enjoy this wonderful world of music.

Robert Plant

I am just glad that I can take the music to the people who want to hear it. I love my audiences. I am deeply indebted to them for giving me the chance to sing my concerts, make records, and do what I love. Whatever people call it, it is great to have a voice!

Judy Collins

I love a lot of very sentimental music, but I shouldn’t necessarily be the person who makes it.

Grimes

The way I like to think about it is, even though I started music early – I started in classical music – it wasn’t until I discovered jazz that I really fell in love with music and realized this was what I wanted to do for a living.

Miguel Zenon

It doesn’t matter if you stick the name ‘bluegrass’ on it. I think people call things bluegrass that I wouldn’t necessarily call bluegrass, but what they’re calling country music today I’m not sure that I would call country music. But I love music and I try to encourage people.

Ricky Skaggs

Music will always be a part of my life. I love music and I don’t care how many units I sell.

Alanis Morissette

In one of my songs, I say fame is nothing more than loving someone. So I’m grateful every day that there’s so many fans of people out there that love my music and feel they’re connected to me through that.

Jason Mraz

When I was eight, my mum found me humming to myself and scribbling on a scrap of paper. When she asked me what I was doing, I got shy. I was writing a Christmas song, and I had never shared my music with anyone before. Reluctantly, I sang it for her… and she loved it. Of course she did – she’s my mum.

Neil Jackson

The best part of touring is the opportunity to make the music. You get to do what you love and have the ability to go out on stage every night and create.

Matisyahu

I love all kinds of music. My dad’s from London, so he loves David Bowie, the Stones, The Clash. I grew up with that influence while loving poetry and loving all kinds of current music.

Adam Hicks

I love ‘Guitar Hero’ because I love music, but I have no musical ability whatsoever. So I love a game that makes you feel like you’re a rock star.

Marisa Miller

I love Philip Glass’ work, not only as a film composer but also as a musician. The film score work that he does always amazes and shocks me.

Park Chan-wook

I can tell you what I really love: when I run into people on the street that tell me they have connected with my music.

Solange Knowles

My whole life and my whole career, even through my music, I tell people: let’s unify; let’s show more love.

DJ Khaled

Recording a song for a film doesn’t take much time; it’s hardly an hour’s job, but concerts are constant, and so is travelling, so I’ve to take time out to work on my albums because I’m passionate about creating my own music. When you love something dearly, you set your priorities accordingly.

Kailash Kher

I’m a Muslim. I don’t try to hide it. I’m also a girl who loves music.

Yuna

I like a lot of metal music. So that’s really what I listen to a lot. Or I listen to a lot of kind of off the cuff, like I love artists like Santigold, or Gold Frapp. Yeah. Pelican. Yeah.

Jada Pinkett Smith

YouTube has changed my life in a huge way. I mean, I wouldn’t be able to pursue music and do what I love each day if it wasn’t for the YouTube platform and for the people who watch my videos and share them.

Megan Nicole

I wanted to bring back that big, ballad type of music that we used to love so much. Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, when they first came out, that’s what I grew up singing.

LaToya London

You have to embrace the people that love you because you’re making a difference in people’s lives, and you’re making them feel something with your music. That, I think, is the biggest key: to stay grounded and focused and stay true to who you are as a person.

Caleb Johnson

I like and I love everything that has to do with cinema: writing, directing, editing, creating music, and even acting.

Werner Herzog

I’ve always gravitated towards the beats, obviously. And when I was growing up, I always loved funk music or even – dare I say it – disco.

Tommy Lee

I transitioned into theater and acting when I was about 9, community theater and musicals, being, like, chorus-kid-number-78 or whatever. But I just loved it. As a kid you just crave attention, and early on I just felt it was so cool and fun to play around and have people clap for me. But eventually I grew up and fell deeper into it.

Tatiana Maslany

What’s scummy about the music industry is that everybody loves you when you’re dead.

Nikki Sixx

The British may not know much about music, but they certainly loves the noise it makes.

Richard Baker

Because of the Thames I have always loved inland waterways – water in general, water sounds – there’s music in water. Brooks babbling, fountains splashing. Weirs, waterfalls; tumbling, gushing.

Julie Andrews

I would rather be on stage playing to 25 people with a band I love and the music I love than learning dance moves I don’t want to do for 25,000 people.

Drake Bell

I was very sure I did not want to be the stereotype of what Indian people are seen as, which is Bollywood and henna. That’s all great! It’s what we are, and I love it. I love saris; I love music. I love henna; I love dancing, but that’s not all we are.

Priyanka Chopra

When I was in Utah there, first learning the kind of music I love, my favorite singer was T. Texas Tyler. So my friend, Norman Ritchie, the traveling teenage sage, started calling me U. Utah Phillips.

Utah Phillips

I love a mix of kickboxing, gym, yoga, Pilates, horse riding, and dancing. I also do skinny rappelling, which is a quick cardio workout with music and lighting, so it’s fun.

Amy Jackson

I loved music from earliest childhood – from as long as I can remember.

Terry Teachout

I don’t remember ever not singing. My mother loved music, and she taught me songs, country music, spirituals. I would sing for people and pass the hat when I was 4.

Florence Henderson

I’m addicted to laughing. I go to see a lot of comedy shows. I’m addicted to playing really loud and obnoxious rock music in my car. I’m addicted to beautiful clothes and shoes. I just love gorgeous stuff and work hard to acquire pretty things, shiny things. I’m addicted to shiny things!

Nadia Giosia

Roc Nation is such an incredible, unique team, especially in the music industry. Everyone genuinely loves and cares about each other.

Rita Ora

I am a massive fan of early electronica like Steve Reich, Pat Metheny and Thomas Dolby. I used to be a big raver, too, so anything dance. I love ambient music like Tunng. I love acoustic and classical, too.

Kate Fleetwood

It is as absurd to say that a man can’t love one woman all the time as it is to say that a violinist needs several violins to play the same piece of music.

Honore de Balzac

I love being in public places, but I can’t stand long, drawn-out music festivals.

Lamorne Morris

I love oldies just kind of sweet, slinky, Fifties music. The slow stuff. And Billie Holiday.

Nastassja Kinski

The best part of making music, for me, is collaborating and working with new people and fresh sounds and all those things that gets people excited to continue in this business that we all love so much.

Mariah Carey

I love country music, blues, and punk, and one day I might make those kinds of records.

Kesha

I love what I do: there is no pressure. The music doesn’t like pressure.

Burning Spear

I love music and I enjoy creating sounds. I got into making music when I was a child, starting with the spoons and the koto before moving onto the piano.

Tobe Hooper

I was a pop freak. I love music. Of course, I knew soul because I grew up in it. Writing it and everything. I love soul. But I love a tune that has some meat in it. Something I could hang my hat on. Because music is universal. Therefore, I felt no boundaries.

Isaac Hayes

I listen to music mostly in the evening. I’ve come to love what is called world music, like the Zimbabwean Oliver Mtukudzi and the Colombian singer Marta Gomez. I also love the Irish folk singer Mary Black. Other favorites include Chet Baker, Eva Cassidy, and Billie Holiday.

Jeannette Walls

There is a big difference between No. 1 and No. 2. I don’t care who wrote it. I’d love to one day have a No. 1 that I wrote, but if that ain’t in the cards, whatever. My job is right now is to make the best music I can and try to get it to the people, whether it be something that I wrote or not. It’s my job to be the best I can for the fans.

Randy Houser

Every musician, their goal in life is to play music that people love, and I’ve accomplished my goal. I was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and left that chapter of my life and those people in the past. Good and bad, I’ve loved and am thankful for that chapter.

Steven Adler

I’ve loved Michael Jackson, his music, his music videos.

Ashley Tisdale

I was naive in that I thought I could just sing and perform and do what I had always wanted to do all my life. But I wasn’t ready for all the added dramas that came along. There were times I fell out of love with music and thought about walking away. I thought I was happier when I was that girl at home in my bedroom singing into my hairbrush.

Rebecca Ferguson

I want people to say about me, ‘I know he’s making music because he loves it.’

Hunter Hayes

I wish I had come along when the studios were making those big musical pictures. It would be great to do re-makes of some of the old ones like ‘Porgy and Bess’ or ‘Showboat.’ I’d love to do ’em.

Vanity

I’m hoping to do more with my music. I did the stage musical ‘Spring Awakening’ recently and it reignited the love I have for singing.

Janel Parrish

I would love to sing. I would love to do a musical, but I wouldn’t say that that singing is my strong suit.

Channing Tatum

I love making music, I love composing on my computer, just making crazy ethnic slack orchestral tracks, that’s one of my fun things.

Casey Abrams

I love playing video games. I love listening to music. Just surfing the web. Facebook, Twitter, keeping in touch with people from home.

Trey Burke

I completely love music. I used to be the music critic at ‘The Improper Bostonian.’ It’s just something I’ve always loved very deeply.

Matthew Tobin Anderson

I love people, and I love to be with people and to make music with people, but my natural state is to revert back to being by myself in my house, which is cool because that’s where I practice and write and listen and study.

Esperanza Spalding

I could name a few songs and say exactly what summer they came out and what boy I thought I was in love with when I was fourteen years old, but I think that music used to be really more a part of the culture when people went out dancing in a different way than they do now.

Ann Beattie

I love music, singing, and playing piano (though I’m not very good). And I adore musical theater.

Aprilynne Pike

I’m a lover of all sorts of music, which makes me a chameleon when it comes to performing anything, whether it’s opera or whatever. As long as it’s good and it feels good, I’m going to cling to it.

R. Kelly

I’ve always loved music, but I never really played anything. After ‘Walk the Line’ and learning to play guitar, and having that sense of performing, I think that certainly opened the door for me, for music.

Joaquin Phoenix

I’ve programmed myself musically to come up with love-feeling tracks that are romantic, sexy, but classy, all in one. And that’s the challenge. Once I create that music, then the lyrical content starts to come – you know, the stories and things like that.

R. Kelly

They say the music you listen to in your formative years stays with you and leaves an impression for the rest of your life. For me, the things that I fell in love with happened in the ’70s, when artists were nurtured by record companies and it wasn’t about singles.

Nikki Sixx

When I was about 6, my cousin was very active in a Filipino repertory company, doing musicals and plays. Her aunt was one of the founders of the company, and she told my mom that there were these auditions for ‘The King and I,’ and that they needed kids. I auditioned, got in and the love affair started from there and just kept going.

Lea Salonga

I’m a huge Cure fan. I love the Cure. The scales being tipped to when they weren’t on a major label compared to when they were seems pretty meaningless. I had the good fortune of having them go before me and seeing their careers, musically at least, lose something. Like a novel written by a dead hand.

Isaac Brock

I am musical and I enjoy theatre, but I never wanted to just do theatre. I always wanted to go into film. I love film. I loved growing up in the theatre, but I always wanted to do film all along. But, I still pursue music separately.

Sabrina Lloyd

When I started DJ’ing, it was no big thing. There was no money in DJ’ing, and you did it purely for the love of playing music.

Paul Oakenfold

I love some electronic music. I’m not a big fan of dubstep, but there is so much good electronic music out there.

Chino Moreno

Music is love in search of a word.

Sidney Lanier

A love song must respect the canons of music beauty, entering the fibers of those who are listening. It must make them dream and pleasantly introduce them to the universe of love.

Andrea Bocelli

I love musicals, but I find it’s just so deadening. You know, 30 takes, you do a little piece here and a little piece there. There’s hours and hours of waiting. And to me, that’s as far away from real performance as you can get.

Dick Van Dyke

I love country music, always have and always will.

Casey James

I’m a real genre jumper, but all good music belongs to the same family. I love Dave Sitek, a producer I’ve been working with a lot since I moved to L.A. He will change the game.

Erik Hassle

I was a big fan of Aaliyah’s. Growing up, my mom was a big fan of her music. When I grew to have my own taste in music, I really loved ‘One In A Million.’ That was my jam.

Alexandra Shipp

I write music because I love it. Sometimes more than anything in the world.

Ansel Elgort

Music is my life. I love doing it, so I just do it nonstop all day. And with dancing, I wanted to put on a show for people. I don’t want to just be sitting there doing nothing, so that’s when I started to dance.

Austin Mahone

I read a lot of poetry, and I love what it does with language. I love music, too, and I think there’s probably no coincidence there, that the rhythm of the words is almost as important as the words themselves, and when you can get the two working together, which usually takes me about 20 goes, I feel a huge satisfaction.

Kate Grenville

I love music; it’s my passion.

Ja Rule

I love writing plays because they are living, fluid things that are energised by the producer, designers, musicians, actors and audience.

Berlie Doherty

I like ‘Glee’ because I love all the singing. It’s like an hour-long music video. Those kids are so talented, and I love ‘The Glee Project’.

Heather Dubrow

Miley Cyrus, like all of us, needs to be loved. We all come from complicated parents… I understand her, and I love her, and I think things will be different with her. But you know, in the music business, sometimes you have to shock a little.

Richard Simmons

‘Love Letter’ is a concept album, and whenever I do a concept album – and I love doing concept albums more than any other kind of album – it allows me to get dressed, in a way, musically.

R. Kelly

Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s version of ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is my favorite full-length ballet, Sergei Prokofiev’s breathtaking score a favorite composition of music. As a student of martial arts, I loved drawing my sword in defense of my Capulet kin.

Sascha Radetsky

I’ve always loved music, very simply, as a vehicle to express myself and that hasn’t changed.

David Coverdale

The average music-lover hears only the production under prevailing conditions.

John Philip Sousa

Walter Cronkite was the last newsman everyone trusted in the same way that the Beatles were the last music everyone loved and Marilyn was the last star everyone concurred was worthy of the word.

Steve Erickson

I still love it. I love lots of other music, too, and always have, but punk’s the soundtrack of my youth. I think you never escape the music you’re listening to and seeing when you’re seventeen, eighteen, nineteen years old.

Dream Quotes Collection [Part 5]

Your vision will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.

Carl Jung

Dreams grow if you grow.

Zig Ziglar

There’s a lot of people that have great ideas and dreams and whatnot, but unless you’re willing to work really, really hard, and work for what you want, it’s never going to happen.

Kris Jenner

We want an Afghanistan that is shaped by the dreams of the great Afghan people, not by irrational fears and overreaching ambitions of others.

Narendra Modi

Being a doctor, lawyer in war-torn countries isn’t easy when the infrastructure isn’t there. The money, the food and education is not always accessible to achieve those dreams.

Brandon Stanton

This is the city of dreamers and time and again it’s the place where the greatest dream of all, the American dream, has been tested and has triumphed.

Michael Bloomberg

I had my freedom, and I had my comfortable life, but I couldn’t accept the fact that the politicians were making it increasingly difficult for my kids and millions of others to achieve their dreams as I had achieved mine. So, in 2012, I ran for president.

Gary Johnson

Common sense tells us that the things of the earth exist only a little, and that true reality is only in dreams.

Charles Baudelaire

Within months after reading the novel ‘The Hunger Games,’ I went from telling my mom that I could see myself as this character to actually getting the role. My mother reminds me that if I could manifest such an important role just because I wanted it so much, all of my dreams are possible.

Amandla Stenberg

Africa is not fulfilling people’s hopes and aspirations. African leaders have not had an agenda that included governing Africa so that people would find their careers, their life, dreams and visions fulfilled here.

Ama Ata Aidoo

I know it sounds corny, but when you follow your dreams, it happens. And if it’s music, take it seriously.

Enrique Iglesias

And they were writing scripts where Christine had hit the glass ceiling. And I always thought Christine would never hit the glass ceiling. I thought her dreams would take her. Maybe her dreams wouldn’t take her where she wanted, but she still had her dreams.

Sharon Gless

I came to the United States in the early ’80s and was welcomed with open arms and given the opportunity to pursue my dreams. God has been very kind to us. My family and I are fortunate enough to be successful and we feel a tremendous responsibility and obligation to give back to our great country.

Naveen Jain

A man is a god in ruins. When men are innocent, life shall be longer, and shall pass into the immortal, as gently as we awake from dreams.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I might be writing what people expect me to write, writing from that place where I might be ruled by economic considerations. To overcome that, I started working with my dreams, because I’m not so censored when I use dream material.

Kathy Acker

I never had any big dreams about doing something on a huge scale.

Alison Krauss

I plan to see St. Louis as a global competitor. As an international trade hub, as an incubator of new companies, as a place of culture and the arts, as a magnet for immigrants, for entrepreneurs, for animal lovers, and for gays, as a city of parks and trails, and as the sort of place that figures in young people’s dreams.

Francis G. Slay

With Shakespeare and poetry, a new world was born. New dreams, new desires, a self consciousness was born. I desired to know to know myself in terms of the new standards set by these books.

Peter Abrahams

I am a person who has many dreams. But as soon as I accomplish one, I move on to the next. That’s my fatal, absurd nature.

Shakira

Drawing the desperate and the adrift, Los Angeles has long been the dumping ground of dreams both real and cinematic.

Steve Erickson

I think when you move past your fear and you go after your dreams wholeheartedly, you become free. Know what I’m saying? Move past the fear.

LL Cool J

After having done this whole slew of press for ‘Big Love’, now I’ll have anxiety dreams for like a week and a half about all the stupid things I said. I can’t even imagine being in front of the cameras all the time. I had a weird dream the other night that I was on ‘Jersey Shore.’

Chloe Sevigny

If I had an extra 20 or 50 years physically, I could have been the dancer of my dreams. But I never became that dancer.

Erik Bruhn

I understand it’s my role to realize people’s dreams. I’m O.K. with that so long as my songs are my own. No one can take my songs away from me.

Ayumi Hamasaki

My career’s consisted of all of those things that you hope would one day lead to being a series regular, and then your dreams grow from there. My career has been very steady, and I’ve been blessed in that I’ve been given everything that I can handle, at the right time.

Kimberly Quinn

Our theme for this year’s festivities, Dreams and Challenges of Asian Pacific Americans, speaks to the many generations of Asian Pacific Americans who worked hard to overcome economic hardship, racism and other barriers in their pursuit of the American dream.

Lucille Roybal-Allard

‘Portlandia’ is the most fun show. When I get a breakdown of what the arc of the story is going to be, I could never in my wildest dreams anticipate the direction.

Kyle MacLachlan

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.

Josie Loren

The dreams which reveal the supernatural are promises and messages that God sends us directly: they are nothing but His angels, His ministering spirits, who usually appear to us when we are in a great predicament.

Paracelsus

One of my dreams was to change the way women of color were seen on television.

Loni Love

I have those dreams that you can’t put into words.

Harry Connick, Jr.

My life has been a continuous fulfillment of dreams. It appears that everything I saw and did has a new, and perhaps, more significant meaning, every time I see it. The earth is good. It is a privilege to live thereon.

Liberty Hyde Bailey

Men act out like they’re horrified by marriage, but when they find the woman of their dreams, they love it.

Rachel Hunter

I had dreams of conehead aliens when I was little. Before ‘Saturday Night Live’ did it. And then they came out with them, and I went on to be a glorified extra in the movie. When everyone else was laughing, I was scared.

Parker Posey

So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words: You will never be ignored again. Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Donald Trump

Follow your dreams. Just make sure to have fun too.

Chris Brown

Why does the eye see a thing more clearly in dreams than the imagination when awake?

Leonardo da Vinci

God gave us dreams, but he gave us kids to make all those dreams worthwhile. And when I look at all my kids, I say everything that I’ve ever went through in my life was worthwhile.

Tracy Morgan

I’ve got a lot of dreams I want to achieve, and I hope someone can cheer me on as I’ll cheer them on in their dreams.

Hunter Hayes

I don’t have kids, but I know that you want them to follow their dreams, while at the same time, you don’t want them to be sitting around, hoping that dream is just going to come. I’m sure that’s hard to tell your kids.

Kaley Cuoco

Many entrepreneurs think that cash is the ultimate solution to all of their problems: the one thing standing between them and their dreams.

Jon Oringer

It seems like in the beginning of my flight, the space dreams were rare. And now, almost 150 days into it, the Earth dreams are more of the rare ones.

Scott Kelly

Although every writer dreams of getting it right on the first pass, very few succeed.

Richard Rhodes

I was so lucky to have parents who supported me, 100%, with whatever I was doing, both financially and emotionally. Having that they made my life so much easier. Instead of becoming a bartender and trying to survive while trying to pursue your dreams, I didn’t have to worry about that aspect. I could just pursue my dreams.

Cam Gigandet

Dreams are the touchstones of our character.

Henry David Thoreau

I love to work with the younger kids who are trying to live out their dreams, if in fact that’s what they plan on doing after college to take the next step. A very select few have that opportunity so when you do have the opportunity you know, those guys take advantage of it.

Roger Clemens

I like to keep the median age in my lab low because they will indulge me in my dreams. They don’t yet think things are impossible.

George M. Church

A visionary is someone who can see the future, or thinks he sees the future. In my case, I use it and it comes out right. That doesn’t come from daydreams or dreams, but it comes from knowing the market and knowing the world and knowing people really well and knowing where they’re going to be tomorrow.

Leonard Lauder

I had dreams of catching the ball for the final out in the World Series and being mobbed by my teammates. Well, I guess all my dreams didn’t come true.

Robin Yount

A heart without dreams is like a bird without feathers.

Suzy Kassem

When violence becomes imbedded in a region, then this affects everything. It affects your dreams, your fantasies and relationships, and your religion becomes violent, too.

Karen Armstrong

I dream crazy vivid dreams. Like, entire movies. And sometimes I write songs about them.

Amy Lee

Ours is the job of interpreting the Constitution. And that document isn’t some inkblot on which litigants may project their hopes and dreams.

Neil Gorsuch

I always feel like it’s two key ingredients when it comes to following your dreams, making something happen that the average person deems difficult. If you truly believe it, that’s step one. Step two, is, you know, the hard work that goes along with it.

J. Cole

I have very vivid dreams – almost always action-adventure. I’m often on the run. I’ve always had dreams. When I was little, I’d go to sleep with my head on my hands, which were in fists like I was looking through a camera. I felt like sleep was the movies – just drifting off to the movies.

Sarah Silverman

Hollywood is the dream factory, and no one dreams about older women.

Amy Heckerling

But we can hold our spirits and our bodies so pure and high, we may cherish such thoughts and such ideals, and dream such dreams of lofty purpose, that we can determine and know what manner of men we will be, whenever and wherever the hour strikes and calls to noble action.

Joshua Chamberlain

One of the most persistent yet elusive dreams of the Modern Movement in architecture has been prefabrication: industrially made structures that can be assembled at a building site.

Martin Filler

My mother was always working for a job, so I guess I was always trained that I should have multiple jobs, multiple aspirations. And I remember she had multiple aspirations, always hearing about her dreams and things she did in the past and things she wanted to do.

Sean Combs

Nothing happens unless first we dream.

Carl Sandburg

Dreams seem to have a will of their own.

Henry Reed

I stayed true to my dreams and, eventually, they came true.

Kevin Hart

I thin many people’s deviant behavior starts with dreams because dreams are so non-linear… as if there’s an assumption that everything has to be linear or has to be plotted.

Robyn Hitchcock

You know, one of my biggest dreams in life is to play a Disney princess.

Ginnifer Goodwin

The Book of Revelation is the strangest book in the Bible, and the most controversial. Instead of stories and moral teaching, it offers only visions – dreams and nightmares, the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, earthquakes, plagues and war.

Elaine Pagels

What I would say to young entrepreneurs is there’s so many moments in your life where you have these dreams, and people are trying to protect you, and they say, perhaps, friends, family, parents sometimes, they don’t agree with it, they think, ‘This is just too high of a hurdle.’ And I don’t agree with that.

Howard Schultz

I believe dreams represent the purest form of fantasy we unleash through our subconscious. They represent the truest freedom we can experience. Totally unrepressed and totally creative.

Miguel

So much of Sue Sylvester, the angry woman, came from that part of my life, wanting to crush other people’s dreams and judging others so harshly, which is always just a way of deflecting your own self-judgment.

Jane Lynch

It’s weird to say, but every time I look at my daughter and I see this little living breathing thing that came from me, that represents all of the hopes and dreams that I would want for her, I see a miracle.

Josh Gad

Stories come to me in mysterious ways, more like dreams than reasoned creations.

Anthony Browne

The minute you feel secure about yourself and own the fact your dreams are honest true, other things fix themselves.

Shantel VanSanten

You can be out of slavery and have the right to vote, but unless you have access to capital, industry and technology, you can’t fulfill your dreams.

Jesse Jackson

I think that every artist dreams of renewing the forms which came before, but I think very few can be considered to have achieved that. We are all dwarves standing upon the shoulders of the giants who preceded us, and I think we must never forget that. After all, even iconoclasts only exist with respect to that which they destroy.

Peter Greenaway

The Hispanic community values entrepreneurship and family-owned businesses, and we deserve a leader in Washington who is dedicated to creating an environment where our values, our goals and our dreams of prosperity can become reality.

Mario Diaz-Balart

To be able to help a 13-year-old kid from the Bronx follow her dreams just by letting her know she’s not forgotten in this crazy world – that’s why I got involved with Frum Tha Ground Up.

Alicia Keys

All the characters in my books are imagined, but all have a bit of who I am in them – much like the characters in your dreams are all formed by who you are.

Alice Hoffman

I say to my colleagues never confine your best work, your hopes, your dreams, the aspiration of the American people to what will be signed by George W. Bush because that is too limiting a factor.

Nancy Pelosi

Men are the dreams of a shadow.

Pindar

When the legends die, the dreams end; there is no more greatness.

Tecumseh

I married the man of my dreams in 1998.

Cindy Margolis

Dreams are the expression of the unconscious while we are asleep.

Nancy Friday

As I’ve grown – dare I say it – older, I had hopes of indulging my dreams of being a sailor.

Jimmy Webb

Both dreams and neurotic dream-states have as their function the avoidance of displeasure, but the dream-states also serve to provide a positive pleasure gain.

Karl Abraham

For American filmmakers, the Oscars is like a mystic thing. For me, it was being in a mirror of my dreams when I was dreaming of Hollywood when I was an adolescent.

Bernardo Bertolucci

Though we may have desires or bold goals, for whatever reason, most of us don’t think we can achieve something beyond what we’re qualified to achieve. Why, I ask, do we let reality interfere with our dreams?

Simon Sinek

There is no better gift a society can give children than the opportunity to grow up safe and free – the chance to pursue whatever dreams they may have.

John Roberts

For most of my films, I’ve had to go out and start shooting before I could get the rest of the funding. That was the case with ‘Hoop Dreams,’ ‘Stevie’ and ‘The Interrupters:’ We started them quietly out of Kartemquin Films, only really going to funders once we had something to show and a firm idea of what the film might be.

Steve James

In a couple, sometimes, one or both people have to give up their personal life, dreams and ambitions for the good of the family.

Monica Bellucci

When your dreams include service to others – accomplishing something that contributes to others – it also accelerates the accomplishment of that goal. People want to be part of something that contributes and makes a difference.

Jack Canfield

You must recognize, embrace, and be honest about what is real for you today and allow that understanding to inform the choices you make. Only then will you be able to build the future of your dreams.

Suze Orman

Through hard work, perseverance and a faith in God, you can live your dreams.

Glen Duncan

Before dance came into my life, I don’t really remember having any major goals or dreams of wanting to be anything.

Misty Copeland

Right now, I have some big dreams. But at the same time, if I get annoyed and harassed by the media, I’ll just quit. I don’t care. We’re set for life. I have quite a temper.

Anna Benson

In my wildest dreams I never thought – well, I never thought I’d work.

Steve Carell

I put a lot of faith in dreams. I know that big movie roles and opportunities are going to happen.

Krista Allen

In dreams, anything can be anything, and everybody can do. We can fly, we can turn upside down, we can transform into anything.

Twyla Tharp

I’ve got big, big dreams for the future.

Margot Robbie

I’ve always said that one night, I’m going to find myself in some field somewhere, I’m standing on grass, and it’s raining, and I’m with the person I love, and I know I’m at the very point I’ve been dreaming of getting to.

Drew Barrymore

Dreams are real as long as they last. Can we say more of life?

Havelock Ellis

Stability can be a good thing, but it can also lead to apathy. I don’t want to set that example for my children. I want them to believe in their dreams and to go after them. You do that by example.

Michael Easton

I’m very ambitious. I live in reality but I have dreams I want to fulfill – I want to be a director, and I’ve already started my own production company. But I also have a measure of success that I keep to myself. It’s something very personal to me.

Alex Pettyfer

‘The Cut’ is going to give someone the opportunity of a lifetime and help that person achieve his or her dreams.

Tommy Hilfiger

Dreams can be like charades in which we act out words rather than see or speak them.

Jane Roberts

Our dreams are made of real things, like a shoebox full of photographs.

Jack Johnson

There is not one New York but thousands – mixed-up conurbations and microclimates with their own internal logics and charms, dreams and juxtapositions, faces and tongues.

Karan Mahajan

I can’t sing but I can understand wanting to keep a balance, trying to pursue dreams, while creating a stable environment for my children.

Gabrielle Reece

It is an everlasting desire to make my dreams come true. And it’s getting to the point now where it’s like, come on I want my dreams to come true so that I can get on with the rest of my life. Sometimes I think about the rest of my life when I’m done.

Picabo Street

I am quite a dreamer. I think we all are dreamers. We all don’t like to live a practical life all the time. There is a thin line between our hopes and dreams.

Rani Mukerji

Not all lucid dreams are useful but they all have a sense of wonder about them. If you must sleep through a third of your life, why should you sleep through your dreams, too?

Stephen LaBerge

Las Vegas is a very strange place. It’s a place of broken dreams.

Concha Buika

When I did musicals in London a number of years ago, I was in a workshop scenario for a year or more with ‘Bombay Dreams.’

Publishing can be tough. It has the ability to kill dreams.

Michael A. Stackpole

I was a silent actress: a body. I belonged to dreams – to those who can’t be broken.

Follow your dreams. If you have a goal, and you want to achieve it, then work hard and do everything you can to get there, and one day it will come true.

Lindsey Vonn

Be a dreamer. If you don’t know how to dream, you’re dead.

Jim Valvano

I couldn’t help but to think back to my classmates at Thomas Jefferson High School in San Antonio. They had the same talent, the same brains, the same dreams as the folks we sat with at Stanford and Harvard. I realized the difference wasn’t one of intelligence or drive. The difference was opportunity.

Julian Castro

I miss my kids, and they miss me. It’s very difficult, but I have to do it for my country and fulfill my dreams coming to the 2012 London Olympics.

Mary Kom

Don’t be afraid of your dreams.

Jacques Parizeau

I just got tired of waiting for things to happen through other people when so many other people are taking chances on following their dreams.

Christina Milian

The only book by a modern president that bears serious comparison with Obama’s ‘Dreams From My Father’ is Jimmy Carter’s short campaign autobiography, ‘Why Not the Best?,’ published in 1975.

Jonathan Raban

As a kid, this is what I wanted my life to be. Not in my wildest dreams did I ever dare to dream that it would be this.

Smokey Robinson

A true architect is not an artist but an optimistic realist. They take a diverse number of stakeholders, extract needs, concerns, and dreams, then create a beautiful yet tangible solution that is loved by the users and the community at large. We create vessels in which life happens.

Cameron Sinclair

I love sleep. My life has the tendency to fall apart when I’m awake, you know?

Ernest Hemingway

I always thought I would be a teacher. And I think I actually lived up to my initial dreams, because what I do now is teach millions and millions of people many different kinds of things.

Martha Stewart

Only the dreamer shall understand realities, though in truth his dreaming must be not out of proportion to his waking.

Margaret Fuller

My pictures are always part of my thinking, and my emotions, tensions, dreams, desires.

Ingmar Bergman

We need time to defuse, to contemplate. Just as in sleep our brains relax and give us dreams, so at some time in the day we need to disconnect, reconnect, and look around us.

Laurie Colwin

In Americana, the facts and the dreams seem to be all the same to me.

Robbie Robertson

The interpretation of dreams is the royal road to a knowledge of the unconscious activities of the mind.

Dreams come true; without that possibility, nature would not incite us to have them.

John Updike

Dreaming men are haunted men.

Stephen Vincent Benet

It seemed to me that NASA, especially Goddard, was the place where I could carry out the dreams that I had, which were to push forward an experiment that would measure the big bang radiation better than anyone had ever tried before. Therefore, it seemed like the perfect place to go.

John C. Mather

I used to have a lot of recurring dreams about Captain Hook when I was a little kid, which I remember very vividly. But I think I just really liked Peter Pan a lot, and ‘Hook’ was my favorite movie.

Cristin Milioti

For me, the sketching of dresses was about fantasy and dreams. In my little room at home, I felt that I was somewhere else. In Paris, for instance.

Alber Elbaz

Giving children a fair chance to achieve their dreams and reach their potential is everyone’s responsibility.

Randi Weingarten

A horse is the projection of peoples’ dreams about themselves – strong, powerful, beautiful – and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existence.

Pam Brown

Beware of advice about successful people and their methods. For starters, no two situations are alike. Your dreams of creating a dry-cleaning empire won’t be helped by knowing that Thomas Edison liked to take naps.

Scott Adams

Follow your intuition, listening to your dreams, your inner voice to guide you.

Katori Hall

I’d been in Sacramento a day and already noticed the pervasiveness of its homeless problem. The city seemed like California without the masks or pretense: a place where dreams were occasionally made but mostly torn apart.

Tom Bissell

Night is the mother of counsels.

George Herbert

Today, among little girls especially, princesses and the romanticised ideal they represent – finding the man of your dreams – have a limited shelf life.

John Lasseter

Never in my wildest dreams did I entertain the idea that I would become a fashion designer.

Giorgio Armani

I grew up with not a lot of money and I definitely shopped at Goodwill. But even in my most unfortunate state, I was really blessed compared to a lot of the rest of the world. I had a really great chance to follow my dreams and have them actually come true.

AnnaLynne McCord

It is in our idleness, in our dreams, that the submerged truth sometimes comes to the top.

Virginia Woolf

I love working with kids, talking with them and listening to them. I always encourage kids to reach beyond their dreams. Don’t try to be like me. Be better than me.

Florence Griffith Joyner

I’m living out my dreams and I love what I do.

Ashley Tisdale

Sometimes just being on a beach with my loved ones is all the adventure I need. I am a happy camper and continue to be a citizen of the world. I have yet to discover other cultures, other peoples’ dreams and treasures. I will always be a traveler who is discovering beautiful Gaia.

Guy Laliberte

God doesn’t want us to merely sit around dreaming about things we can do and be. That’s a good place to start, but a poor place to stop. God wants us to turn our dreams into action.

Victoria Osteen

I’ve accomplished a lot, but I still have more dreams that I want to achieve.

Joe Jonas

In my childhood, America was like a religion. Then, real-life Americans abruptly entered my life – in jeeps – and upset all my dreams.

Donald G. Mitchell

There are so many people who try so hard and have such big dreams, and it doesn’t happen for them.

Aileen Lee

It’s not too late, I can still live my dreams.

Diana Nyad

I never expected anyone to take care of me, but in my wildest dreams and juvenile yearnings, I wanted the house with the picket fence from June Allyson movies. I knew that was yearning like one yearns to fly.

Maya Angelou

It’s not like I had big dreams to go to California and become an actor. I loved doing my shows at school and community theater, and I probably would have settled in New York because it was closer. I was going to go to NYU.

Christine Taylor

A man becomes what he dreams. And I dreamed of being in the movies. I was brought up on Steve McQueen, Clint Eastwood, Warren Beatty, and Cary Grant.

Pierce Brosnan

I was working at the store on the Sony studios in Culver City. And I was literally holding a shirt when they came in and told me I’d got the part! It just shows dreams do come true.

Derek Luke

Talking about food is like talking about your dreams. Everyone has something to say. We all have to eat, it’s just what we eat which differs. Some people eat for fuel and I feel bad for them.

Gael Garcia Bernal

Sometimes, you follow your dreams. I say to the young people, ‘If you have a dream, chase it.’

Karl Malone

Let us make our future now, and let us make our dreams tomorrow’s reality.

Malala Yousafzai

I tell kids to have dreams, have goals, and believe in them because if you have any doubt, worry or fear, it will choke the life out of your dreams and goals.

Torii Hunter

One of the most adventurous things left us is to go to bed. For no one can lay a hand on our dreams.

E. V. Lucas

I had to overcome challenge after challenge in order to take my life from nothing to living my dreams.

Curtis Jackson

It has been my observation that parents kill more dreams than anybody.

Spike Lee

I never remember my dreams.

Freddie Stroma

We all have dreams. But in order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline, and effort.

Douglas Coupland

In dreams begins responsibility.

Like all dreamers, I mistook disenchantment for truth.

Jean-Paul Sartre

Some people have vivid imagination, some not so vivid, but everybody has vivid dreams.

Stephen LaBerge

I came at age in the ’60s, and initially my hopes and dreams were invested in politics and the movements of the time – the anti-war movement, the civil rights movement. I worked on Bobby Kennedy’s campaign for president as a teenager in California and the night he was killed.

David Talbot

To be a footballer was just a dream, and I don’t believe in dreams. I only deal in what is real. To be honest, I’ve never thought about what I could get out of football or where it would take me. I just wanted to play. I’m the same now.

Thierry Henry

We all have those dreams we’ve never let go of. But believe it or not, sometimes a job that we’re not that keen on can help us achieve those dreams or goals.

John Rampton

The most pitiful among men is he who turns his dreams into silver and gold.

Khalil Gibran

Field of Dreams is the only movie – and I saw it in the theater – on an afternoon when I was on location somewhere, and there were like 12 people in the theater. I was just so devastated; I couldn’t get out of my seat. And I sat and watched it a second time.

Paul Reiser

You can’t take anything personally in this business. Follow your dreams, but there is a lot of criticism. You have to brush it off. Everybody is looking for something different.

Kendall Jenner

Lose your dreams and you might lose your mind.

Mick Jagger

I think basically becoming famous has taken the place of going to Heaven in modern society, hasn’t it? That’s the place where your dreams will come true. It’s an act of faith now; they think that’s going to sort things out.

Jarvis Cocker

But are not the dreams of poets and the tales of travellers notoriously false?

H. P. Lovecraft

I have dreams that I will reach balance in my life, and, at forty-one, I have none.

Andrew Breitbart

My dream of dreams is to write Broadway musicals. All of this Twitter and TV writing is just a day job.

Megan Amram

Hold fast to dreams, for if dreams die, life is a broken-winged bird that cannot fly.

Langston Hughes

I had dreams about working for a big foreign company.

Roustam Tariko

To me, what I love about the draft is; first, you see the young men who are realizing their dreams that they’ve worked so hard for. That’s a pretty cool thing. You saw the emotion from some of these guys the other day. And then, the second thing is this total sense of hope and optimism. And, I think that’s great for everybody.

Roger Goodell

For anyone aspiring to be anything, I would like them to realise dreams require work. So work big time.

Lilly Singh

Ideas are all around you – everything gives you ideas. But the real source is the part of your brain that dreams.

Bruce Coville

We used to talk about wanting to get some money, but that’s when hip-hop was based on your dreams and your fantasy. The whole thing now is the dreams and fantasies were achieved, and you don’t want to make it the focal point. You can’t keep beating that dead horse.

Sean Combs

America allows us to be able to dream, then gives us the ability to achieve those dreams.

Rick Mears

Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will.

Suzy Kassem

My dreams do not end with playing Major League Baseball.

Derek Jeter

Divorce is a time of change. It really rocks a foundation of most people’s lives. When we have our heart broken or our dreams taken away from us, it is a time of growth and change.

Debbie Ford

I always make my dreams into goals.

DJ Khaled

My new life goes beyond my dreams because my dream was Formula One and I achieved it. I’m a driver, I feel like a driver. I have won this race because I am alive.

Maria de Villota

I feel more influenced in my own work by dreams than I do by other writers’ works in a way. Or by popular culture, movies – what else is there to write about than love and loss?

Alice Hoffman

In our dreams we are always young.

Sarah Louise Delany

I would encourage you to set really high goals. Set goals that, when you set them, you think they’re impossible. But then every day you can work towards them, and anything is possible, so keep working hard and follow your dreams.

Katie Ledecky
