This is because what is most pervasive about social thinking is 'how to get along and mutually cope.'~Alan Kay


Time Progress Thinking

Thinking Me Climbing

Music Thinking People

Thinking Thoughts Think

I'm entirely interested in people, and also other creatures and beings, but especially in people, and I tend to read them by emotional field more than anything.

Eyes Thinking People

The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any.~Alice Walker

Moment Think Trouble

No new projects at the moment. There are restrictions to how much I can take on. And I need to finish those that I am committed to do before thinking ahead. But I'd rather they take final shape before we talk of them.~Amitabh Bachchan

Thinking Soccer Moms

Because of reality television and all these celebrities thinking they can be designers, everyone imagines that they can just become a designer, photographer, or model, but that's not the way things work.

Work School Thinking

Oh my goodness, they are rocking so many variations of my high-top fade. I mean, Rihanna has taken it to a very angular 21st Century thing. Miss Fantasia has it in a very seductive, you know, up-flip, and it's just lovely, right? Oh, I think it's wonderful.~Anita Baker


You Think Know

I'm constantly playing this game in my head where I'm thinking, 'Can this quote be pared down and misinterpreted?'

Thinking People Game

I Am Believe Think

I think what's interesting about the whole paparazzi thing is that unless you're Brad Pitt or Madonna, you can pretty much avoid it.

You Think Opening

I think there's a point to regulating, because there are snake oil companies.~Anne Wojcicki

Problems Think California

In other words, I would be giving in to a myth of sameness which I think can destroy us.~Audre Lorde


Words Giving Think

Book Thinking Living

I think at all social networks, be it Facebook or Twitter or whatever it is, there's an ecosystem that exist there. But there's also an ego system that exists there.~Ashton Kutcher

Live Think Boy

I think vestigially there's a synesthete in me, but not like a real one who immediately knows what colour Wednesday is.~A. S. Byatt

Game Think Pressure

On buses and trains, I always think about the inexhaustible variety of human genes. We see types, and occasionally twins, but never doubles. All faces are unique, and this is exhilarating, despite the increasingly plastic similarity of TV stars and actors.~A. S. Byatt


Stars Unique Think

It's so funny, I've done so many projects where I've been interrogated. I guest starred on almost every hour drama, and I'm always the guy they think is the bad guy but then they find out is not.~Aaron Paul

Light Think Thought

I do believe that I deserve what I have. I don't think I'm entitled to it. That's a big difference.~Adam Levine


Believe Think Deserve

My responsibility is to present things in a way that is realistic and true to the multifaceted world I've known... This is how I think the world is, not how it should be.~Adrian Tomine


Responsibility World Think

I think that artists, at a certain point, can either become defiant and say that the audience is wrong, readers don't get them, and they're going to keep doing it their own way, or they can listen to the criticism - and not necessarily blindly follow the audience's requests and advice.~Adrian Tomine


Advice Doing Think

It's absolutely chilling to think that I've been working on a comic-book series called 'Optic Nerve' since I was sixteen.~Adrian Tomine

Great Impossible Think

The traits the word 'childish' addresses are seen so often in adults that we should abolish this age-discriminatory word when it comes to criticizing behavior associated with irresponsibility and irrational thinking.~Adora Svitak


Thinking Behavior Should

We might possess every technological resource... but if our language is inadequate, our vision remains formless, our thinking and feeling are still running in the old cycles, our process may be 'revolutionary' but not transformative.~Adrienne Rich


May Vision Thinking

I think everyone is born 100 percent ego, and after that it's just adjustment.~Agnes Martin


Ego Think Born

When I first made a grid, I happened to be thinking of the innocence of trees, and then a grid came into my mind and I thought it represented innocence, and I still do, and so I painted it and then I was satisfied. I thought, 'This is my vision.'~Agnes Martin


Vision Thinking Trees

A thinking woman sleeps with monsters.~Adrienne Rich


Woman Thinking Monsters

There are certain parts of the home that I think embellishment feels cozy and inviting. Then there are other environments, for example, the living room, where I don't have a ton of items on the table.~Aerin Lauder


Home Living Think

I don't think the way to succeed is by doing something aggressive. Aggression is weak-minded.~Agnes Martin

You Think Story

I think, like most gamers, I talk a good game.~Aisha Tyler


Good Game Think

I did not grow up thinking that I wanted to be an engineer. I had read some articles about girls becoming increasingly scientifically illiterate and that girls lacked confidence in their capabilities when it came to quantitative skills. And I just thought that was kind of wrong.~Aileen Lee


Confidence Thinking Grow

Whatever obstacle comes your way, you gotta be prepared to jump over it! And I think that's what separates the legends from the regular artists. It's all in how you manage that success, and how you deal with the controversy when it actually comes.~Akon


Success You Think

I think sexuality is a window into someone's soul.~Alan Ball


Soul Window Think

I think the French and the Japanese are both obsessed by seasons, small producers, freshness.~Alain Ducasse


Small Think Seasons

You hit a certain age, and you haven't died yet, and you become an elder statesman. I think I get a lot of applause because I'm not keeling over.~Alan Arkin


Age You Think

TV has taken reflection out of the human condition. People didn't use to have a ready answer for everything, whether they knew something about it or not. People think they have to have an answer for everything because the guys on TV have an answer for everything.~Alan Arkin


Reflection People Think

If you think squash is a competitive activity, try flower arranging.~Alan Bennett


Flower You Think

Definition of a classic: a book everyone is assumed to have read and often thinks they have.~Alan Bennett


Book Thinks Classic

I don't just want my books to be about the '30s and '40s. I want them to read as if they had been written then. I think of them as '40s novels, written in the conservative narrative past.~Alan Furst


Past Want Think

It is not hard to feel like an outsider. I think we have all felt like that at one time or another.~Alan Cumming


Time Think Feel

We live in a highly polarized society. We need to try to understand each other in respectful ways. To that end, I believe that we should make room for both spiritual atheists and thinking believers.~Alan Lightman


End Spiritual Thinking

I think you can be as big as you like as long as you mean it. I really do.~Alan Cumming


Long You Think

Nowadays people don't know how to handle it if all the ends aren't tied up and they're not told what to think in films. And if they're challenged, they think it's something wrong with the film.~Alan Cumming


People Think Know

Among some of the youngsters, I think reality TV has installed that culture into them and inspired a few of them into wanting to be 'TV celebrities.'~Alan Sugar


Culture Reality Think

For example, Americans seem reluctant to take on Shakespeare because you don't think you're very good at it - which is rubbish. You're missing out here.~Alan Cumming


Good You Think

Youngsters have got to stop thinking about becoming the next Zuckerberg. It's a trillion-to-one chance. What they need is mater and pater to say, 'Get a job, son.'~Alan Sugar


Son Job Thinking

In America, everybody thinks they're an entrepreneur. That's the problem. It's not a title that anybody should call oneself.~Alan Sugar


America Problem Thinks

I come from the place where I am thinking 'I have put my blood on the pages.'~Albert Brooks


I Am Thinking Blood

I mean, my voice has gotten a little deeper sounding as I've gotten older, I think. I noticed that.~Alan Jackson


Voice Think Mean

I think if you retire from touring then people think you are retired.~Alan Jackson


People You Think

And I think to be in NATO for the countries of our region, it means more guarantees for us, it means more responsibility for our common security, but it means fulfillment of all standards of civilized world, like protection of human rights and democratic mechanisms.~Aleksander Kwasniewski


Responsibility World Think

I always try to make the music that I like and think my fans will like.~Alan Jackson


Music Think Try

I think every album you have, especially if it's done well, you feel like you're competing with yourself.~Alan Jackson


Yourself You Think

I think I've always approached making albums pretty much the same way. I'm just looking for a mixture of songs and topics that aren't the same thing over and over.~Alan Jackson


Looking Think Way

So I think that is one of the reasons we can face some regional problems, which are very difficult, very dramatic and is necessary to have instruments to solve these problems. NATO is such instrument.~Aleksander Kwasniewski


Problems Think Face

I want to know where is that committee in Switzerland that sits to decide what is in and what is out. I don't listen to the formula makers. I think maybe I have a selective hearing disorder.~Alber Elbaz


Want Think Listen

The thing to do with mutual funds is to buy a couple of decent ones, set up an investment plan and then never, ever think about them again, except maybe once a quarter or so when you take a peek at your statements to make sure that you have not accidentally been buying the Fidelity Peace-in-the-Middle-East fund.~Alex Berenson


Plan You Think

I never think people should do things for me. I think I should do things for others. That makes me more comfortable.~Alber Elbaz


People Me Think

I've always said fashion is like roast chicken: You don't have to think about it to know it's delicious.~Alber Elbaz


Fashion You Think

I utterly reject the view that the Third World is doomed to poverty and starvation. Not only is this wrong, I think this attitude verges on the immoral, like thinking that slavery is an unalterable facet of the human condition so why bother doing anything about it?~Alex Tabarrok


Attitude Thinking World

Fannie Mae is owned by shareholders but operates under a federal charter that exempts it from paying state or local taxes. As a result, many professional investors think the government would repay the debt that Fannie Mae had issued if the company could not, although Fannie Mae explicitly says that its bonds do not carry a federal guarantee.~Alex Berenson


Government Think Company

I think modern television shows, with their intricate plots, are stimulating our minds. This is one reason IQs have been going up.~Alex Tabarrok


Television Think Minds

Democracy is an experimental system. I like it when states try out new ideas. I think we ought to expand, not contract, our federalist system.~Alex Tabarrok


Democracy Ideas Think

I think the fashion industry has gotten to a place where it is embarrassing.~Alek Wek


Fashion Think Place

The Right likes to think that intellectuals and academics like Allan Bloom and Dinesh D'Souza spurred the explosive growth of movement conservatism in the 1980s and 1990s, when it was actually mostly Rush Limbaugh.~Alex Pareene


Growth Bloom Think

I think humor can be an effective way of getting the point across, but there are definitely times where I just write very earnestly.~Alex Pareene


Humor Think Way

I never like to think about going back; I only look forward.~Alex Rodriguez


Forward Look Think

I think what makes 'Jeopardy!' special is that, among all the quiz and game shows out there, ours tends to encourage learning.~Alex Trebek


Learning Game Think

Stick to the classics, and you can't ever go wrong. I see old ladies on the street who have fabulous style and realize it's because they are probably wearing really classic items that they've had for years and years. I think if you find something that suits you, you should just stick to it.~Alexa Chung


Style You Think

Film directing has perfected my theater directing.

I love technology. I have my iPad, iPad mini, iPhone and Mac laptop. Because I love technology, I think if I were not at the NBA, I would try to be part of a tech startup company.~Adam Silver

I started feeling this little lump in my throat, like you would feel if you have swollen glands or something like that, like you'd feel if you have a cold, so I didn't really think it was anything.~Adam Yauch

I think the hardest part about making a scary film is about being able to retain the mystery, especially when it comes to supernatural stuff.~Adam Wingard

I'm not coming in as an advocate of sports gambling. I'm trying to be more of a realist to say it's going on in a massive way... and I think the right course would be therefore to legalize it and regulate it.~Adam Silver

What I try to do with the accent of any character I play is not necessarily to do something that's generic - an Indian accent and that's how it sounds, for example. I think the accent needs to sound authentic on this person.~Adhir Kalyan

I usually just go on Google and spend my hours just Googling Jennifer Beals. I think it's possible that I have a slightly unordinary obsession with her. YouTube videos. Interviews with her. Pictures I put on my desktop and my phone.~Adhir Kalyan

I think every actor wants a certain amount of control. Maybe not control, as such, but just to be part of the process. But it's not necessary, I guess.~Aidan Turner


Control Process Think

I was downright obnoxious. In second grade, we had some program where we kept a public list of all the books we read. I think it even included the number of pages. In my nerdy mind, having the longest and most impressive list was somehow going to make up for the fact that I couldn't climb a rope or do a backwards summersault in PE.~Alafair Burke

I think of making a movie in such a romantic way.~Alexandra Cassavetes


Romantic Think Way

I think vampires are different from human beings, but they're sentenced to eternity on this planet. They have the same confusion about love and permanence, integrity, and denial. These qualities really are the same in vampire characters as in humans. I think they're universal themes.~Alexandra Cassavetes

John Lee Hancock is someone that I had admired from afar. I think he is a wonderful director... in the tradition I would say both of Clint Eastwood and Frank Capra.~Alison Owen


Tradition Think Director

I think it's a false distinction to say that conversation and composition are separate. Because even as we speak, I'm seeing. Every interview is different, and I'm finding new ways to talk about ancient preoccupations. And I sometimes come on something that's immensely helpful and valuable. Plus I like the sensation of conversation.~Allan Gurganus

I think the biggest adjustment I've made before coming here was going from High A to Double A. I was going in facing pitchers who had more experience and knew how to throw all their stuff for strikes and in hitter's counts, things like that.~Andrew Benintendi

I think once I see everybody and go through every team and their pitchers, I'll get an idea of what they like to do. And they'll see what I like to do and swing at. I think there's always something you've got to adjust to.~Andrew Benintendi

The big thing I noticed from High-A to Double-A is that when you have an advantage count as a hitter, you're not going to get as many fastballs. Adjusting to the 2-0 changeup, that 3-1 off-speed pitch - things like that. I think my swing can stay the same; I just was getting myself out.~Andrew Benintendi

I was a punk. I think that's why I'm such a good person now, because I was such a bad guy then.~Adam Oates


Good Good Person Think

When I work, I'm thinking in terms of purely visual effects and relations, and any verbal equivalent is something that comes afterwards. But it's inconceivable to me that I could experience things and not have them enter into my painting.~Adolph Gottlieb

I never use nature as a starting point. I never abstract from nature; I never consciously think of nature when I paint.~Adolph Gottlieb
