Don't try to guess what it is people want and give it to them. Don't ask for a show of hands.

The most valuable thing you have is your own voice.~Aaron Sorkin

Friends Remember You

The Strokes, you bond when you're 18, and you're friends. The feeling's different. When all of us get into a room, we feel like the same people from before. We weren't anybody; we were just hanging out. It's hard to understand if you're not in a band. You're one-fifth.~Albert Hammond, Jr.


Friends People Bond

Love Old Friends Friends

Best Best Friend Sister

I love hanging out with friends and family.~Ashley Wagner

Wife Day Friends

Honestly, I usually have way more guy friends than girlfriends.~Alexa Vega


Friends Way Girlfriends

The qualities that make parties such a nightmare for people - and also so pleasurable - make them incredibly important inside of fiction.

Friends Rainbow Gay

I'm blessed in my good friends, and some of them happen to be writers, though that's almost never what our friendships are about. And every writer I've ever read, living or dead, has in one way or another helped and inspired. I have a feeling it's important not to mix the two up.~Ali Smith


Good Blessed Friends

The biggest way I stay motivated is to run with a group of friends. Sometimes it's hard to get going by yourself, but if you have a plan and a meeting time, you know this run will happen for sure.

I'd rather have friends who care than friends who agree with me.~Arlo Guthrie


Friends Me Care

I know what I look like. I'm not a babe who's automatically going to be the leading-lady type. I think I would always be cast as the friend. I probably tend to look crap more often than I look good. I like messing around and pulling funny faces and doing funny walks.~Ashley Jensen

Friends Remember Me

I was in high school. A couple of my friends and I decided we had to be in a class together where we could fool around, and drama was it because we'd do improvs, beating each other up. They left a year later, and I stayed in and got a knack for it, and enjoyed the whole process.~Adam Beach

People Me Girlfriends

'Friends' started because Rachel left her husband at the altar. This likability factor is just so stupid to me. It's the same thing as 'wish-fulfillment,' which is a big word you hear in a lot of Hollywood rooms. It basically means that people want to see other people living a life they can't lead, and I don't buy that. I think that's not true.~Adam Pally


Life Friends People

Katy Perry's politics I could probably do without, though I have friends who have interacted with her that say she's very nice.~Autre Ne Veut


Politics Friends Nice

When I was twelve or thirteen, if you liked something that was outside of your friend group genre, you had to rationalize and explain it in some way. It's totally irrelevant, I think, now. I don't think anybody cares. Not young people, at least. Maybe journalists.~Autre Ne Veut

I guess, like most foreigners, when you're away, you see your own culture being even more strange. But where I come from and my roots mean a lot. I miss my family and my friends.

I was 16 before I met another passionate collector. One summer, I visited England; a new friend took me calling on his dotty, brilliant old aunt. She occupied a quaint house in Kent. Its walls were lined with glass-fronted cases full of what? Ancient shoe buckles.~Allan Gurganus

My friends tell me I'm the most boring celebrity they know! A typical night for me is at home in California or watching movies in my pyjamas.~Amber Riley

I don't go on the Internet. I never go on the Internet. I don't go on Twitter. I'm not on Facebook. I've seen friends go into dark, dark holes of sadness because of that. Frankly, I don't have the time or the attention span for it.~Amy Sherman-Palladino

Money is a huge issue for manic depressives. Sometimes the problem is not nearly on the same scale as it has been for me, but nonetheless, it's difficult to deal with.

My playing music is strictly for fun. When I was in a band, I was really excited to talk about it since I had never really played music to that extent.

My friends have said, 'Wait, you're pretty, and you sing? What do you mean you're interested in science?' I have to just hold my head and go, 'Do you hear yourself?' By no means should you ever limit yourself because of what others think or because of their perceptions of what someone looks like in a certain field.~Auli'i Cravalho

When we were shooting in Shreveport, me and a couple of friends went down to Lafayette, because they had a big Zydeco music festival down there.

We've never slammed people over the head or made 'The Flash' an after-school special. With us, it's always been presenting the world in which we live.

Work Women Friends

I remember, my mom, she's lived in Spain for about thirty years, and we were playing the Royal Albert Hall, and she was with some friends from New York. Morrissey came out with the sign 'The Queen is Dead,' and my mom's friends are like, 'Oh my God.' They took it literally.~Andy Rourke

Children Road Friends

People think it must be wonderful being in movies or on television, but it can be very tough on a child. I had two friends in elementary school. That was it. There was a clique of girls that were brutal to me. They pulled some very mean stuff. My two friends got me through it. Without them, I would have been all alone.~Angela Cartwright


School Alone Friends

I've always been a Marvel fan. As a kid, I would pick up a two-foot stack of comics and read them in the back of my dad's car on long journeys across the States. That's how I used to make friends - I'd meet up with other kids, and we'd swap comics.~Angela Bowie


Dad Car Friends

I was the guy who was friends with everybody. Yes, I had my core group of friends, but I wasn't part of a clique that excluded people. I hope they thought I was a nice guy.

Hope Friends People

I talked to some vets in L.A. about what they go through and do they think about their experiences a lot. I got a wide array of answers. Some people get very emotional, which is understandable.

I love playing tennis. To me this is not a workout, but a fun extracurricular activity I do with friends so it doesn't feel like I'm working out.~Ana de la Reguera


Love Friends Fun

I'm weird. I'm not too focused on the physicality of a man. They just have to become my best friend, and then I start to get attracted to them. I've never been in a bar and just hit on a guy and started kissing him; I've never done that in my life.~Ana de la Reguera


Life Best Best Friend

I try to do different things. My main goal is to choose roles where I won't repeat myself or where I will not be doing the same role over and over. I try to do a villain, the best friend to the lead, and then a lead. I try to vary it up because if I don't, I will get bored.~Ana Layevska


Best Best Friend Myself

Fun Friend Me

I'm always drawn to strong female leads, so that's what drew me to 'Lost Girl.' I was a 'Buffy' fan and watched it with friends every week. I was also a big fan of 'Alias' when that was on - they both had strong female leads, and that's what draws me in the most.~Anna Silk


Week Strong Friends

People come up to me all the time. If I'm with friends or in a crowd, I'm fine, but if I'm by myself, I get afraid because people are nuts.~Annie Golden


Time Myself Friends

All of my friends in the business ask, 'Why is this woman not a star? Why is she not a household name?'~Annie Golden

I have friends in France who are artists. I go to gallery openings and things like that.~Anthony Geary


Friends Gallery Go

They're my best friends. We think of Gigi as the brains in the family - something most of the world doesn't know - and my favorite thing about Bella is that she's a free spirit who never lets anyone set limits for her. They can be really protective, but they've taught me not to let other people define what I'm capable of.~Anwar Hadid


Family Best Friends

Sportswriters. They were all my friends. They were racetrack guys and so was I.~Art Rooney

Old wood best to burn, old wine to drink, old friends to trust, and old authors to read.~Athenaeus


Best Trust Old Friends

All I want is good, honest, loyal friends.~Aviv Nevo

A man can stand a lot as long as he can stand himself. He can live without hope, without friends, without books, even without music, as long as he can listen to his own thoughts.~Axel Munthe


Music Hope Friends
