I'm used to seeing it, but it's weird having an Academy

‘Strong Island’ has been a labor of love and dedication on the part of so many people, that it’s just an incredible recognition to be honored.

Reading to babies creates such a special parent-child bond and so strongly influences a child’s language skills that the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that doctors and nurses routinely discuss it with parents during pediatric visits.
Dorothy Bush Koch

Michael Caine
I don’t thrive in a school or academic environment, I found out. I thrive better in the world outside the small academy because I find it hard to explain what I’m doing.
Julia Holter
There’s been a slow death in a way. On the positive side, there are films getting into the Academy Awards that wouldn’t have, but on the negative side, financiers are now dominant and making all the decisions. I can’t count the ways a director’s vision is compromised.
Lili Taylor
It would be the ultimate dream for me to win an Academy Award, be in love and have kids. Then I would say, ‘Life is great! I have done everything I wanted.’

Mauro Icardi
Don’t get me wrong – I love going to academy every day and training as hard as I can; I love to learn. But I have other plans. When you are in the UFC, you gotta save 80 percent of your time for that. I want to do other nice stuff, other things that give me pleasure also.
Demian Maia
The more players who come through the academy and make it into the first team, that’s what we want. Not just for the club but for the country. If they’re young English players coming through, that’s fantastic. I’m happy to be part of that.

Santiago Martinez Delgado
I was very aware when I went to the Academy Awards that it would probably be my first and last time. So I thought my input should really be about fertility, and I thought I’d bring some eggs.
If you want to improve the football, of course you need to put attention on the academy, on the school, the facility.
Fabio Cannavaro
I was in the National Academy of Fine Arts and Design, on a scholarship. I was – still am – an artist.

Billy Dee Williams
I’m very interested in heritage restoration, and I’m working with a group of people to create a number of academies and performance spaces to encourage native arts and crafts and to explore African history.

The Royal Academy Summer Exhibition is very difficult to hang because it is so large and the quality is very varied. There are 1,200 works, an almost impossible number, some are interesting and some are not.
Michael Craig-Martin
I don’t think there’s any reason why girl goalkeepers cannot train alongside the boys in academies. We have done it in the past. But health and safety have stepped in and stopped us. It may be there were child protection regulations to observe.
Karen Bardsley
I began my journey as a 16-year-old boy at the Arsenal’s academy, trying to one day become a first team player, going out for evening runs in East Barnet with Jack Wilshere.

The heritage of Arsenal, to believe in our academy and to really promote our academy. That’s important and that’s why I am here as well. I wouldn’t waste my time just to know that we are not having successes here at Arsenal.

VAMPIRE ACADEMY: Rose- See something you like? Dimitri- Get dressed. LAST SACRIFICE: Rose- See something you like? Dimitri- Lots
Richelle Mead
I love pity parties. I wish I’d brought hats.
Richelle Mead
You think a student leaves each week because they are out of the academy. This is just a cover up to hide serious injury that has occured! Malachi has only one ear and is now wearing one of those joke rubber ones – it’s very noticeable but people are too polite to say!
David Sneddon
Fact is, awards shows were never really about recognizing achievement. They were a publicity ploy cooked up in the late 1920s by MGM topper Louie Mayer and his newly formed Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences which was itself, back in the day, nothing but a front organization to discourage unionizing.
John Ridley
When we were studying at the Royal Antwerp Academy, we were taught to seek inspiration from everyone, everything and everywhere. My parents and grandparents were also a great inspiration for me a very young age.
Dries van Noten
I had a period when I was sixteen where I started to get a big head. I was going through puberty, and I was nominated for an Academy Award. My head got inflated. My friends were the real ones who said, ‘You’re acting different.’ But the truth is that I don’t need that, because I don’t get out of hand.
Leonardo DiCaprio
I look at the character of the exhibition and I treat it as I would a painting or an installation. When I did the Summer Exhibition at Royal Academy, I did it exactly as I would when making a new work.

Josef Albers
Along with the Oscars, the Academy is giving out a green card.
Robin Williams
For me, the youth academy has a fundamental role in every club.
Manuel Pellegrini
To a degree which is difficult to determine, the esoteric impulse in twentieth-century music, literature and the arts reflects calculation. It looks to the flattery of academic and hermeneutic notice. Reciprocally, the academy turns towards that which appears to require its exegetic, cryptographic skills.
George Steiner
The important thing is to think about theory in life in that way. And I think we don’t have to be theorists, we don’t have to have gone to the academy, or to the university to learn theory and to be a theorist of gender.
Judith Butler
I’ve always been a little different in the way I’ve done things, going to high school instead of a tennis academy when I was younger.

Our Exhibitions [The Royal Academy] have… a mischievous tendency, by seducing the Painter to an ambition of pleasing indiscriminately the mixed multitude of people who resort to them.

Hans Frank
In the words of Agatha Swanburne, founder of Swanburne Academy, ‘Every book is judged by its cover until it is read.’

Max Scherzer
I love the academy in terms of the life of the mind and the world of ideas. I also love the streets. I love the churches and mosques and synagogues. I love the trade union centers. I love the community centers. I speak regularly at prisons and so forth.
Cornel West
I’m always watching films. The Academy pretty much sends me every film that’s ever been done. I enjoy watching them, especially with the people I know.
Don Rickles

We have seen a lot more black and minority ethnic coaches at grass-roots level, academy level, development level, but of course at senior level there is a massive void. That is something that has to be addressed and there has to be a pathway for them.
Chris Hughton
I’m officially retired as the refuser of Academy Awards.
Sacheen Littlefeather
It was tennis that got me started in business. When I was 16 and about to embark on my A-levels, I set up a tennis academy and became one of the youngest qualified tennis coaches in the country. It did well; by the time I was 19 I was able to buy my first house.
Peter Jones
I consider it probably one of the biggest honors to be in the Academy. There are only like 1300 actors in it, and as far as I know, you’re a member for life. To this day, I’m wondering how lucky I was.
William Sanderson
I want to thank the Academy for its courage and generosity.
Elia Kazan
One of my most rewarding congressional duties is nominating future military leaders to study at America’s service academies. The exceptional young men and women who receive these coveted nominations earn a top-of-the-line education and the opportunity to serve their country as a military officer.
Kevin Brady
The FBI Academy teaches new agents that the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior.
Ronald Kessler
Man’s usurpation over nature is an egotism that will destroy human as well as whale kingdoms. … Academies should return to wisdom study in tree groves rather than robot study in plastic cells
Allen Ginsberg
We don’t even know who’s in the Academy.
Clint Eastwood
I had teachers in high school to point me in the direction of the University of Indiana School of Music, and after IU, I went on to study at the Academy of Arts in Philadelphia. I graduated in 2006.

One of the great things about The Umbrella Academy’ and its TV version is that there are 10 hours of footage, so characters are a lot more fleshed out and further developed.

Ki Hong Lee
I personally developed the Academy training program. All our training is based on solid educational principles. We present the material in four training formats: lecture, demonstration, drill, and implementation.

Mark Cavendish
Theater school is essentially like training. It’s boot camp. It’s like an academy to put you through all these different situations that sometimes are more extreme than what you’ll come across in the field. But now you’re emotionally prepared for it so that when it does happen, it’s not a big surprise.
Baron Vaughn
When you’re in an academy, every day you’re in at 9 A.M., and it’s, ‘Do this, do that,’ but we just came with our football.
Riyad Mahrez
One thing about Notre Dame, it’s like a service academy in a lot of ways. There is a closeness.
Ara Parseghian
Aglionby Academy was the number one reason Blue had developed her two rules: One, stay away from boys because they were trouble. And two, stay away from Aglionby boys, because they were bastards.
Maggie Stiefvater
I think that no matter whether you’re Quentin Tarantino or any other kind of a rebel, or whatever, everyone who makes movies still wants to win an Academy Award, because it’s like the Pulitzer Prize or the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Robert Osborne
I’m not Pollyanna – I know that my personality and my opinions and how I approach the teaching of writing maybe isn’t exactly how it’s done traditionally in the academy…wherever that academy is…but, you know, the academy is broken as it relates to many creative writing programs.
Tod Goldberg
When Miss Williams was crowned Miss America in 1983, she opened the door for Black women around the world to achieve immeasurable dreams the same way Hattie McDaniel did as the first Black woman to ever win an Academy Award.
Kenya Moore
After I did ‘Broadcast News’ and got an Academy Award nomination, the first thing I did was ‘Roe vs. Wade’ at NBC.
Holly Hunter
We live in a society of laws. Why do you think I took you to all those Police Academy movies? For fun? Well, I didn’t hear anybody laughing, did you?
If they wish to alleviate the sufferings of the exploited classes, let them live up to their pretensions, let them abandon the academy and go out there and work politically and economically and in a humanitarian spirit.
Harold Bloom
For ‘Toy Story 3’ to be recognized by the Academy as not only one of the best animated films of the year, but also as one of the 10 best pictures of the year, is both humbling and overwhelming.
Lee Unkrich
In the ’70s and ’80s there was an attempt in K-12 to teach science through art or art through science. The challenge today is how do you build the ethos of art and design into the academy of science.
John Maeda
I get cassettes near Academy Award time of every movie that’s made that thinks it has some kind of chance for a nomination – that’s when I watch my movies
William Peter Blatty
Youngsters need self-esteem, simple targets in life which give energy. In the academy they can be so easily distracted by so many other things it’s amazing.
Per Mertesacker
If I want to be up for an Academy Award, I’m either going to have to play a tour de force of some kind or have a tracheotomy just before the nominations.
Burt Reynolds
At one point, I was greenlighting films and scripts that shouldn’t have been made based on the fact that they had that stamp of approval of an Academy Award winner. And the good news is I got to learn the real process of filmmaking – directing, storyboarding, writing.
Cuba Gooding, Jr.
Football has given me a lot of great opportunities, so now I am trying to put that to good use. I have a foundation in Brazil that supports 750 children, and am hoping to do something similar in the Middle East with a soccer academy.
I was raised Irish Catholic and went to Holy Names Academy, an all-girl’s private Catholic school. I loved the nuns there and I love them to this day.
Kitty Kelley
I am thrilled beyond words that The Academy has recognized my performance in Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years a Slave,’ and I am deeply proud to be in the company of my fellow nominees.
Lupita Nyong’o
The Academy Awards was an amazing night. I know I kind of lost my mind a little bit. I apologize for that. That night went so fast; I can’t remember what I said or what happened.
Cuba Gooding, Jr.
Speaking as a parent, I don’t think parents think all the time about structures. I know from conversations I’ve had with other mums, I’ll ask: ‘Is your child’s school an academy or a local authority school?’ – and they’ll look at me blankly.
Nicky Morgan
I went to a regular school, not one of those fame academy things.
Alyson Hannigan
We’ve established a Washington State Academy of Sciences that will enable us to make decisions based on science about what is right for our state, meaning the quality of our lives will get better.
Christine Gregoire
They teach in academies far too many things, and far too much that is useless.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I’ve been a part of Margazhi festival even as a little boy. I used to accompany my mom to concerts held by the Music Academy.
Y. G. Mahendran
I was training at Killer Kowalski’s old place, and at that time it was the Chaotic Training Center but now it is the New England Training Academy, but we were kind of the feeding ground. Anytime WWE was in the northeast area that is who they would call. They would call them for extra talent.
Tommaso Ciampa
I wish we could get back to those days, just let kids go and play and enjoy themselves on the streets instead of at academies too young.
Robert Snodgrass
I went to the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art because it was the only drama school the social worker had ever heard of. Luckily, I got in at the first attempt.
Richard McCabe
I know the Academy Awards are all about the art, and love, of movie making. But I have to say, my favorite part is the dresses!
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
I feel very, very upset that, when it came time for me to get an Academy Award, that I didn’t especially thank Clint Eastwood.
Michael Cimino
In the first season, Five was not very inclusive and he felt he needed to do everything himself. He didn’t really open up to his family about the apocalypse. By the end of that season, he goes to them for help. He realizes he needs The Umbrella Academy – the full force of his family.
Aidan Gallagher
I always felt like the Academy was very late in acknowledging things. I’ve seen them do it with hip hop when it should have been acknowledged. It was already penetrating mass levels of culture and radio, and yet they wouldn’t give it a proper category.
Steve Stoute
What does the Academy Award mean? I don’t think it means much of anything.
Sally Field
I thought Umbrella Academy’ was this really interesting and unique world.
Aidan Gallagher
To be honest, I started playing for Belgium in the youth team stages. As a kid, Belgium was all I knew. We played football with my schoolmates as well as at the academy.
Divock Origi
When I entered the film school at the Prague Academy in the ’50s, it was the hardest time in the Communist countries. The ideological control of the society was almost absolute.
Milos Forman
For a true artist, life is a real academy. I am always both a student and a teacher. I have been teaching art to children since the age of eight. Now I am a co-founder of Akiane Arts School at Foreli Academy, where we are now enrolling students.
Akiane Kramarik
I grew up in that band. Some people go to college and get a Master’s. I went to My Chem academy, and I feel like I graduated with honors.
Frank Iero
Whenever someone asks me craft questions like that I feel like I can give one of two answers. I can give the academy answer and say that it was very deliberate and I had a plan in mind and I executed that plan exactly to the letter. But this isn’t the case.
Ron Currie Jr.
At a club like City, you cannot forget about the kids that have come through and are still emerging from the academy. We can’t forget about them and we should always keep that in mind with an eye to the future.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
I actually graduated from the Chicago Academy for the Arts. I think John Cusack did as well.
Cecily Strong
The Academy not only knew I existed, they thought I was good!
Teri Garr
It depends on the generation and gender. The males usually go for ‘Police Academy,’ and the young women now in their late 20s or so go for ‘Punky Brewster.’ I am recognized quite frequently because they’re still playing that stuff on television!
George Gaynes
I don’t attack any kind of script or shooting with some philosophy that is discernible even to myself. It might just be art and love: When I got my Academy Award for ‘Virginia Woolf’ in the middle of the Vietnam War, I said, ‘I hope we can use our art for peace and love.’
Haskell Wexler
I’ve been training super hard at the Lopez Taekwondo Academy in Houston, which belongs to my brother Jean. For me, I think confidence is the biggest thing; it’s all mental. I train with the best of the best, including my brother Steven, a five-time world champion who won Olympic gold medals.
Diana Lopez
The academy is not paradise. But learning is a place where paradise can be created.
Bell Hooks
Things with my dad were pretty good until I won an Academy Award. He was really loving to me until I got more attention than he did. Then he hated me.
Tatum O’Neal
It was also my idea that the advisory committees of the Academy should replace the legal committees of the German Reichstag, which was gradually fading into the background in the Reich.
Hans Frank
I’m an Academy Award winner. I’m serious.
Charlize Theron
Ever since I was a young kid, I’ve been playing for an academy with scouts all over the world that are looking for top players to come in.
Danny Welbeck
One of the things I learned at the Naval Academy and the Marine Corps is we have to make tough decisions.
Todd Young
I didn’t practise it loads when I was at the academy in Spain, but when I got on the ATP Tour it’s something I dedicated a lot of time to.
Andy Murray
I graduated from Academy of Fashion and Costume Design in Rome. At first, I thought I was going to be a costume designer for films, and then I ended up working in fashion – not as a designer, but mostly as a model.
Isabella Rossellini
It certainly is an embarrassing fact, then, for certain classical scholars to have to face, that the Platonic Academy continued to function in Athens for over nine hundred years.
Robert K. G. Temple
After high school in 1969, I was appointed to the Air Force Academy. In ’73, I studied for my postgraduate degree and became a USAF pilot in 1974. After my discharge in 1980, I became a commercial pilot and flew my first airline flight at Pacific Southwest Airlines in 1980.
Chesley Sullenberger
people see so many movies that when they finally see one not so bad as the others, they think it’s great. an Academy Award means that you don’t stink quite as much as your cousin.
Charles Bukowski
Steve MCQueen created an entire family to tell one man’s tale and I am delighted that so many of this family have also been recognised today. I am hugely grateful to the Academy for this great honour, and, of course, to Solomon Northup for sharing his story through his breathtaking book.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
What we forget is that the Academy is a star-maker, or it reinforces the stardom of people.
Michael Cimino
I pay attention when the Academy Awards come around. I haven’t watched them in a while, but I used to watch them religiously when I was a kid.
Alex Ebert
On ‘MADtv,’ I discovered I could do Billy Crystal. ‘Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the 68th Annual Academy Awards!’ Surprisingly, there’s more call for that one than you’d think.
Phil LaMarr
I’m grateful to the state and central government for all their support for my academy.
Mary Kom
Of all the memories I have of my father and of our relationship, none is warmer and more poignant than what happened a year before he died, when he came to visit me while I was teaching at West Point Grey Academy in Vancouver.
Justin Trudeau
When I was 16 years old, I joined a drama group called North Queensland Academy of Dramatic Art under a woman called Maggie Shephard-King. She inspired me to audition for the role of Romeo in ‘Romeo and Juliet.’
Brenton Thwaites
In 1956, I received an invitation to a dedication of an observatory in the Soviet Union, in Soviet Armenia, as a guest of the Soviet Academy of Sciences.
Nancy Roman
Harper Lee’s novel ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ became iconic almost immediately after appearing in 1960: best-seller status; the Pulitzer Prize the next year; a classic movie soon after, with Gregory Peck in an Academy Award-winning role.
Kevin Young
I’d like ten more babies and ten more chihuahuas and a few Academy Awards. Meanwhile, I enjoy being a sex symbol and making people happy.
Jayne Mansfield
Payday at my house is like the Academy Awards. My wife says: May I have the envelope please.
Henny Youngman
At the Academy Awards every year, there are best-dressed stars – and worst-dressed stars. But it’s the worst-dressed that go down in history.
Brad Goreski
The manager sits down with me; I sit down with the board. We assess the success of the year. The manager assesses whose coming through the academy system. His job is to look at what is happening in European and world football.
David Gill
There is a lot of talk in the academy about the death of the humanities. Based on my readers’ response and their interest in history and literature and art, the death of the humanities has been grossly overstated.
Deborah Harkness
The ideal direction is using something like Khan Academy for every student to work at their own pace, to master concepts before moving on, and then the teacher using Khan Academy as a tool so that you can have a room of 20 or 30 kids all working on different things, but you can still kind of administrate that chaos.
Sal Khan
He was a graduate of West Point, which is military academy that turns young men into homicidal maniacs for use in war.
Kurt Vonnegut
I want to put on the table, not why 85% of the members of the National Academy of Sciences reject God, I want to know why 15% of the National Academy don’t.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Art is not to be taught in Academies. It is what one looks at, not what one listens to, that makes the artist. The real schools should be the streets.
Oscar Wilde
I’ve always wanted to have some sort of academy or program that links education and basketball.
Luol Deng
What brought me here was a desire to keep playing and the exciting project the Cosmos proposed to me. As well as being able to play, which is my passion and what I like doing, they also gave me the chance to help develop a youth academy, where I can bring my experience and knowledge to bear.
The guidelines say all the right things, … They address all the issues that were raised as problems at the Air Force Academy. The major question is, how will be they become a reality A lot of the people implementing this are the people who violated it.
Abraham Foxman
I came from a very poor family. And I was able to rise up and actually win an Academy Award. And if I can do it, then any kid can do it.
Roger Ross Williams
My father was a low-budget monster movie maker, so he made classics like ‘The Crater Lake Monster.’ There were always creatures around. And my dad was a huge fan of Ray Harryhausen. One of our neighbors, who went on to win several Academy Awards, was close friends with my dad. His name is Phil Tippett.
Robert Stromberg
The (Academy Award) ceremonies are a two-hour meat parade, a public display with contrived suspense for economic reasons.
George C. Scott
Whether you’re a presidential front-runner, or an Academy Award-winning actor, or head of a TV ministry, if you stay in the public eye long enough they’re going to try and find a scandal.
Rob Lowe
India, with one of the largest education systems in the world, has always been a priority for Khan Academy.
Sal Khan
Back in the days, being able to join the Jean-Marc Guillou academy was one of the best things that could happen to a youngster from Ivory Coast. There were thousands of kids who wanted to join that school so it was a great feeling for me.
Let’s face it. There is no setup in Pakistan to train and groom young players at the grassroots level in different sports. Those of us who did make a name for ourselves and became champions did it with our own initiative – there was no academy to back us till we reached a certain level on our own.
Jahangir Khan
When I got into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, a doctor told me to give up the course as I’d be totally deaf within a couple of years. But I refused to give in.
Stephanie Beacham
The Academy Awards are passed out on Sunday. It’s voted by members of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences. Or as I call them, 50 shades of white.
David Letterman
Many of our nation’s great leaders began their careers at a service academy. I encourage anyone interested in a rewarding college experience or military career to apply as soon as possible.
Chris Cannon
It was never an ambition to grow up and win an Academy Award, so when it happens, you go, ‘Weird!’
Ethan Coen
It’s something I’ve been working on since I started out at Sao Paulo, and over time I’ve tried to improve my skills. But even when I played in the local academy, I was trying to show off some ability with my feet. I actually scored several free-kicks.
When you’re a scholar at the academy of a professional club everything is quite nice and easy. Then suddenly you’re up against opponents who are playing to put food on the table and you realise it means that much more.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin
I’d rather win a pennant than an Academy Award
Laraine Day
Oh yeah, I’m about to host the Genies, which are the Canadian Academy Awards.
Andrea Martin
I can’t compare these movies (Vampire Academy/Twilight/Harry Potter). Every single one of them has their own mythology.
Danila Kozlovsky
The academy at Abidjan was my school of education. At 16, they sent me the boots and jersey with my name on the back. You can imagine how I felt: in the clouds.
When I was young, the best moment came when I was 10 and I got invited to the academy. I remember getting all this Ajax training gear and suddenly I was able to call myself an Ajax player.
Rafael van der Vaart
After the Academy Award, well, I was left with a lot of time on my hands. I thought I’d get a lot of offers – and they didn’t come.
Louis Gossett, Jr.
Holding on to some of your uniqueness is the trick instead of surrendering it at the Academy of Contemporary We’re Gonna Make You a Star.
Bill Bruford
I’m thrilled to be asked to host the Academy Awards for the second time because, as they say, the third time’s a charm.
Jon Stewart
Richelle Mead’s ‘Vampire Academy’ saga is set to be the next young adult paranormal series to become a household name.
Andrew Shaffer
I did ballet at the Menlo Park Academy of Dance from age 4 to 11, but then I switched to ballroom, and I’ve been doing that ever since.
Cheryl Burke
My academy did a great job of getting my story out there for people to hear about me, get interested and wanted to fund me.
Frances Tiafoe
I think the Swedish Academy wished to manifest its solidarity with the living spirit of Greece today.
Giorgos Seferis
Can anything be less cool than defending the motion picture academy?
Steve Erickson
I was put under contract. A major studio. I got nominated for an Academy Award. Isn’t that ridiculous? I mean, at the age of 18!
Angela Lansbury
That best academy, a mother’s knee.
James Russell Lowell
How far the existence of the Academy has influenced French literature, either for good or for evil, is an extremely dubious question.
Lytton Strachey
I want to become a movie director and win an Academy Award. That’s what I’m trying to do.
Ryan Garcia
It’s much harder to act in a bad film than in a good one. A terrible script makes for very difficult acting. You can win an Academy Award for some of the easiest acting in your career, made possible by a brilliant script.
Michael Caine
High school was interesting, because I went from a public school middle school to an academy where the first year we were doing Latin, chemistry, biology. I mean, I was woefully unprepared for the type of study.
Kyle Chandler
Of course. Because at the Gallagher Academy, “precautions” usually equals “voluntary shock therapy.
Ally Carter
At the Academy Award Dinners all the actors and actresses in Hollywood gather around to see what someone else thinks about their acting besides their press agents.
Bob Hope
I’m not aiming for an Academy Award.
Andie MacDowell
At Moscow’s Bolshoi Ballet Academy, I studied under a brilliant and fiery teacher. This tiny, stuttering old man flew into a rage if his students’ white socks failed to reach mid-calf level. Nor could he tolerate floppy hair. We wore hairnets to class – an athletic brigade of short order cooks.
Sascha Radetsky
When you’re the host of the Academy Awards, and you grew up watching Bob Hope and Johnny Carson, and now it’s your turn, and you get a chance to run with the baton on the relay for a while, I really embraced it and just really loved being there.
Billy Crystal
Working in film, if you work with great directors, you learn that after every take you must let go. Sitting with my wife at the Academy Awards, we both let the moment just go.
Ben Kingsley
In Idaho, we hope to see educators using Khan Academy to individualize their instruction. Instead of a one-size-fits-all lesson, teachers will be able to focus their attention on specific students who are struggling while the rest of the class engages with material appropriate for them.
Sal Khan
Dimitri: “Rose, I’m seven years older than you. In ten years, that won’t mean so much, but for now, it’s huge. I’m an adult. You’re a child.” Rose: “You didn’t seem to think I was a child when you were all over me.” – Rose Hathaway & Dimitri Belikov (Vampire Academy)
Richelle Mead
Today, Academies of Science use their influence around the world in support of human rights.
John Polanyi
There is strong mentoring of women in the academy. Corporations appear more willing to resist affirmative action to advance women, and boards and shareholders are more tolerant of this approach.
Ruth J. Simmons
Personally I discovered that you could go through the academy as a young scholar, come out, and almost immediately have an impact on the academic environment.
Bernice Johnson Reagon
West Ham have a great academy.
Freddie Ljungberg
Maybe the biggest award show of the largest entertainment importer in the world needs an economic incentive to embrace diversity. Indeed, maybe we should boycott the show and pressure advertisers to do the same. Or maybe the Academy should learn the lesson of history and change because it’s the right thing to do.
Lexi Alexander
There was an old brochure for the American Academy of Dramatic Arts with a quote from Robert Redford or someone, that said, “You’re only as good as you dare to be bad.”
David Copperfield
When I occasionally indulge in sort of a ‘look back’ at highlights, it’s so interesting – it almost never comes from an image on a set or even the Academy Awards. It’s almost always a family trip or meeting and falling in love with Cheryl.
Ron Howard
To the extent that the academy is producing people who are talking utter nonsense, and imagining that it is sophisticated and enlightened – that system is a failure.
Bret Weinstein
Overall, we’ve lost risk-takers on the red carpet at the Academy Awards. All too often, stars play it safe.
Brad Goreski
I want to settle down and start an academy in a rural area, because I feel that’s where most champions come from. If you have everything in life, why would you wake up at 3:30 A.M. to train? I feel there’s a lot of talent that goes untapped there, especially in women sports.
Geeta Phogat
I’m not that refined academy player who’s going to pick the ball up, pass it and be neat and tidy all the time. I’m a player who’s going to get it and run at the full-back, run in behind.
Michail Antonio
Members of the Academy are mostly urban people. We are an urban nation. We are not a rural nation. It’s not easy even to get a rural story made.
Larry McMurtry
Many England girls have grown up playing men’s cricket and trained in county men’s academies, so they’ve faced 70-80 mph bowling. So when it comes to the women’s game you have a 75mph bowler who’s not as tall and not getting as much bounce, you feel more assured.
Isa Guha
Going to the Academy Awards is something I remember since I was six, when I went with my mom for the first time, 14 with my dad, you know, and there I am, at 22, 23, whatever I was, sitting next to my mom. You know, and then again, there with my dad. Like, there’s a beauty to it, and I care deeply about film history.
Laura Dern
For the last years now I’ve had my own academy where I train Brazilian Jujitsu and Tae boxing, Muay Thai everyday.
Sean Patrick Flanery
Never mind what you’ve heard. Halle Berry was not the first black woman to win an Academy Award for Best Actress. She was actually the 74th white one. And never mind all this talk about America electing its first black President; Barack Obama is actually the 44th white man to hold the job.
Jeffrey Kluger
The Swedish Academy of Sciences has seen fit, by awarding the Nobel Prize, to honour the method of producing ammonia from nitrogen and hydrogen.
Fritz Haber
Some of us have held the hands of friends or brothers as they struggled with military and police academy recruiters, and though many of them never dreamed of being policemen, a lack of opportunities led them to those positions.
Opal Tometi
I studied at the Academy during the years of economic sanctions. Life was almost dead because the sanctions imposed on Iraq by the civilized world were so strict.
Hassan Blasim
In adolescence I started to find out about Robert Wilson because I saw Lou Reed’s “Timerocker” at [the Brooklyn Academy of Music]. I started getting into Jim Jarmusch and knew that my uncle was a friend of his. I pieced together parts of his life in high school and college, which lead me to his story in a funny way.
Aaron Brookner
I’m a member of the Academy, but I don’t know who all the other Academy members are. It’s not like a politician who knows who is in the Iowa caucus.
Albert Brooks
I think La Masia is the most important academy in the world. The coaches and the whole club helps you for your future.
Gerard Deulofeu
There is, however, another purpose to which academies contribute. When they consist of a limited number of persons, eminent for their knowledge, it becomes an object of ambition to be admitted on their list.
Charles Babbage
I want players to think: ‘OK, this has happened now, what is next for me?’ That’s a very big target because what are academies about nowadays? Is it really just to find one or two players? But what happened to the others? I’m very, very interested in that.
Per Mertesacker
When you see Major League Baseball putting academies in other countries, obviously that throws up a red flag. You wonder why they ain’t going up in our neighborhood. Bottom line, what I see, I talk about… I see it over and over. If anybody can show me I’m wrong, then show me.
Gary Sheffield
I’ve never done theater professionally. But I went to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, so I did some theater there.
Luke Grimes
Academies can also flog off land and buildings, if the much weakened local authorities agree. Serious money can be made, management salaries are high, and hidden in all this is the long-term public subsidy in such sites.
Michael Rosen
I do have an honorary professorship in Poetics from the Vienna Academy of Arts. So I have not gone completely unnoticed
Blixa Bargeld
And as I grew older, I then auditioned for the Royal Academy of Music in London, and they said, well, no, we won’t accept you, because we haven’t a clue – you know – of the future of a so-called ‘deaf’ musician. And I just couldn’t quite accept that.
Evelyn Glennie
My dad won an Oscar in 1951 with an un-Anglicized name, the first Hispanic to ever win an Oscar, and the Academy is so intractable to this day.
Miguel Ferrer
Maybe next year the government might impose some immigration rules on the academy. Two Mexicans in a row is suspicious. [On Mexican immigrants in the US] I hope they can be treated with respect of the ones who came before and built this incredible immigrant nation.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
Money-getters are the benefactors of our race. To them … are we indebted for our institutions of learning, and of art, our academies, colleges and churches.
P. T. Barnum
You can have the nicest academy in the world, it doesn’t make any difference, it’s all about the people. Our job is all about the people.
Patrick Mouratoglou
A few years later the Naval Academy was founded at Annapolis, and a similar course was pursued to provide it with a corps of instructors.
Simon Newcomb
Intensely moving but never sentimental, Academy Street is a profound meditation on what Faulkner called ‘the human heart in conflict with itself’. In Tess Lohan, Mary Costello has created one of the most fully realized characters in contemporary fiction. What a marvel of a book.
Ron Rash
The people I admire most are those doing outstanding things for the poorest children, such as Michael Wilshaw at Mossbourne academy, Dan Moynihan and all those at the Harris academies, and those at chains such as Ark and the Haberdashers, who are driving up standards in the poorest areas.
Michael Gove
I had a standing arrangement with God: I’d agree to believe in him—barely—so long as he let me sleep in on Sundays.
Richelle Mead
In a poll taken in 1998, only 7 percent of the members of the US National Academy of Sciences, the elite of American scientists, said they believed in a personal god.
Victor J. Stenger
I am very happy working with Inter, helping them build the club’s international relationship with both Fifa and Uefa, promoting the marketing side, its social responsibility activities as well as being involved with the club’s academy.
Javier Zanetti
I wrote Time’ while I was filming ‘The Umbrella Academy’ and it is a tribute to the journey of my character on the show as well as to the music of My Chemical Romance, but it is also about the idea of living fully in the present moment.
Aidan Gallagher
I went to a small high school in – down in south Georgia. Terrell Academy is the name of it.
Cole Swindell
How do you feel?” he asked him. “Like a military academy,” said Arthur. “Bits of me keep on passing out.
Douglas Adams
I run an academy in Spain for young footballers who are released by their clubs and who, in my opinion, deserve a second chance. It is a rewarding job for me, but one that also reveals many of the faults in the English game.
Glenn Hoddle
The public is the tribunal before which all art is judged – not the critics or the academies. The public is the artist’s only patron, and has certain fundamental rights. It will submit to education, and will respond to suggestion, but it will not be bullied.
Walter J. Phillips
Now there are reports that Osama bin Laden would like to commit suicide on television. This is the kind of lead-in I have been praying for every since I came to CBS. Bin Laden is planning a televised suicide or, as I call it, hosting the Academy Awards.
David Letterman
In my more than 60 years as a member of the American scientific community, including service as president of both the National Academy of Sciences and the American Physical Society, I have never witnessed a more disturbing corruption of the peer-review process than the events that led to this IPCC report.
Frederick Seitz
I never thought of starting a cricket academy because every second person is starting a cricket academy.
Gautam Gambhir
I didn’t realise that Ridley Scott has never won an Academy Award.
Denzel Washington
After a sound public education, I attended Penn and the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. After being drafted into the military and studying Indonesian, I emerged as a writer, not a painter.
Allan Gurganus
We lived, until I was 12 or so, in communal apartment with five different families and the same kitchen, in two little – my brother and me and my parents. It was hell, but it was a common thing. My father was not general or admiral, but he was colonel. He was teaching in military academy military topography.
Mikhail Baryshnikov
In the groves of their academy, at the end of every vista, you see nothing but the gallows.
Edmund Burke
It definitely takes a long time, because Umbrella Academy’ scenes are very interesting from a writing point of view with all these very off-the-cuff, oddball characters who are all different from each other.
Aidan Gallagher
Hollywood — that’s where they give Academy Awards to Charlton Heston for acting.
Shirley Knight
The theory of permanent Muslim-Christian enmity, though it flourishes in the caves of Tora Bora and parts of the American academy, was long ago exploded by the historians.
James Buchan
Our strategy [at Chelsea] is to bring up our own players through the academy, which we have invested a lot in, and hope it gives results
Roman Abramovich
Leftists would like to pretend that any criticism of their views raises the specter of domestic repression. But in a country with a First Amendment, no suppression from government is likely, and in the citadels of the media and the academy, the far left is actually vastly overrepresented.
Andrew Sullivan
I studied Shakespeare at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, and ‘Orange’ was my first audition ever for TV or film.
Madeline Brewer
I’m having a blast being the music director at the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. It certainly is challenging for me, but I love challenges.
Joshua Bell
My impression is that the Academy is really sincere about moving toward a more inclusive and representative Hollywood.
Yance Ford
I was at the Gopichand Academy since I was 10.
P. V. Sindhu
There is strong mentoring of women in the academy. Corporations appear more willing to resist affirmative action to advance women, and boards and shareholders are more tolerant of this approach.
Ruth Simmons
The Academy Awards ceremony is designed to be without irony, but Chris Rock supplied it anyway with filmed movie-theater interviews with black men and women who had never heard of the movies nominated for Best Picture.
Suzanne Fields
I am thankful to whatever I have got in my life, but one thing which is always at the back of my mind is my dance academy. I would love to see my dance academy growing.
Madhuri Dixit
I have a dance academy in Mumbai that my husband takes care of.
Sudha Chandran
The ‘Police Academy’ stuff was all hyper-slapsticky.
Adam McKay
I’m really not good with impulse control.
Richelle Mead
Illusion – or rather appearance, semblance – is the theme of my life (could be theme of speech welcoming freshmen to the Academy). All that is, seems, and is visible to us because we perceive it by the reflected light of semblance. Nothing else is visible.
Gerhard Richter
I’d like to thank the Academy for my lifetime achievement award that I will eventually get.
Donald O’Connor
Learning about WWII at the U.S. Naval Academy taught me about military tactics and the importance of fighting for our country’s highest ideals.
Mikie Sherrill
Jews have been harmed by the threats to freedom of opinion and debate, the punishments for candor, and the decline in rigorous standards in the academy that have accompanied progressive hegemony, which insists upon the sacrosanct status of affirmative action and other policies favored by the left.
Amy Wax
I was suppose to be a Jesuit priest or a naval academy graduate.
Jimmy Buffett
The Oscars has its own struggles with the way the Academy is set up.
Geoff Keighley
I will always make films that champion outsiders, because I still feel like one, even though I’m now governor of the documentary branch of the Academy.
Roger Ross Williams
What’s being considered now is solidifying my place in the NBA. Keep focusing on the grass roots, because I want the next guys to be good. Right now, all I’m doing for camps and academies and stuff, I’m just finding the next NBA player.
Steven Adams
Academies that are founded at public expense are instituted not so much to cultivate men’s natural abilities as to restrain them.
Baruch Spinoza
Roxy Sorkin, your father just won the Academy Award. I’m going to have to insist on some respect from your guinea pig.
Aaron Sorkin
I love to perform at various award functions and one day I would like to open a dance academy.
Sanjeeda Sheikh
Yes, after I finished my primary school, I went to the Rock Academy. I was only there for one year. I wanted to focus on my own music instead of making music for the school. So, I quit and started my own label.
In the academies, people develop differently, and going into that No 10 role helped me because central midfield was always packed with big, strong boys.
James Maddison
When I went to the academy, we watched Arsenal because of Guillou’s connection with Arsene.
Why do I feel like I can’t trust you anymore?’ I wanted him to lash out. I wanted him to fight, to protest, to argue- to do anything but look deeper into my eyes and say, ‘because the Gallagher Academy doesn’t admit fools
Ally Carter
I mean, my understanding is that the live-action and the comic book versions of the Umbrella Academy’ will parallel with each other while still keeping their distance, so that fans of the comic books who have already read the storyline has something new to look forward to and in approaching a new season.
Aidan Gallagher
I think that ballet and skating definitely go hand in hand, especially growing up at Ballet West, which is an incredible academy.
Nathan Chen
I dreamt of becoming a ballet dancer. I studied with the Royal Academy of London for 11 years, and that did not pan out, but my love for being on stage was born there. And then, I actually went to drama school in Paris, France. That’s where it first started.
Diane Kruger
The academy gave me a grounding in discipline and hard work that has sustained me throughout my life, and the lessons I learned there I now try to impress on young people.
Georg Solti
Opportunities for young girls, like young boys, to go into academies from a young age does happen now in England, but it doesn’t happen globally.
Nikita Parris
I’d set up the Khan Academy as a not-for-profit in 2008, but I was doing well in my job and initially thought I could fund the Academy myself. But by 2009, I was getting so much good feedback that I told my wife that I wanted to do this full time. We had some funds to fall back on, and I knew doing this made me happy.
Sal Khan
For many celebrities, securing the publics votes can prove even more reassuring than winning an election by members of the Motion Picture Academy.
Michael Medved
It’s great having a good academy, but if you can’t pay the players you’re producing, what’s the point of it?
Alun Wyn Jones
I fought against her, trying to mount some kind of defense, but it was like fighting Dimitri on crack.
Richelle Mead
I realize we’re not curing diseases with ‘iCarly,’ and we’re not doing Shakespeare. It’s not an Academy Award-winning film, but it has definitely touched people universally.
Dan Schneider
In the mid-1970s, I was teaching design at the Academy of Applied Arts in Budapest.
Erno Rubik
Academy wingers always pick up the ball and then cut inside or lay it off. No one runs at players like I do, or gets to the back stick and overpowers a defender.
Michail Antonio
Most of my players have come through academies with clubs. That’s not a bad thing, but it’s very different to what I grew up with.
Sol Campbell
When I interviewed profilers in 1984 in the basement of the FBI Academy at Quantico, VA., there were just four of them – Roger Depue, John Douglas, Roy Hazelwood, and Robert Ressler.
Ronald Kessler
‘Silicon Valley’ is a great show. It might be the best comedy on television. And if the Academy feels I have stood out to the point of deserving an award, I won’t pawn it.
T. J. Miller
You can imagine what a trip this is for a Jewish girl from Great Neck-I get to win an Academy Award and meet Elizabeth Taylor at the same time.
Julia Phillips
If one thing that bothers me about acting, it’s that there’s no clear-cut number one. The closest you can get is winning an Academy Award, and I’m going to work on that if it takes me the next 50 years. To my peers, it will mean that I’m the best!
Dana Hill
When I started at the Air Force Academy, I found out that I couldn’t be a fighter pilot simply because I had ovaries. That was enough to make me go for it.
Martha McSally
When I came to Spain, I joined a tennis academy, and that was where I learnt the game.
Garbine Muguruza
The Academies of Art are nothing but great painting factories – those with talent are fed in at one end, and they come out as mechanical painting machines.
Edvard Munch
There were certain young actors I had trained with at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art who had always got the big parts and I was always the spear-carrier. Suddenly the roles were reversed and I couldn’t understand why, and nor could they.
David Warner
My opinion may be different to many, but I think Oliver Skipp is an incredible talent and one of the most professional guys I have come across in the academy.
Ryan Mason
Since retirement, I have been given the opportunity to spend time with my family. I have three children, aged 16, 14 and one. That is what is really important to me. I have also done a little commentating in Australia and am part of the MRF academy in Chennai.
Glenn McGrath
There is a strange sort of reasoning in Hollywood that musicals are less worthy of Academy consideration than dramas. It’s a form of snobbism, the same sort that perpetuates the idea that drama is more deserving of Awards than comedy.
Gene Kelly
I am glad to have this opportunity of expressing my high appreciation of the honour extended to me many years ago by the Royal Swedish Academy of Science by enrolling me amongst its members.
Guglielmo Marconi
A staunch abolitionist, Hamilton was one of the founding members of the New York Manumission Society. He was a trustee and namesake of Hamilton-Oneida Academy, an upstate New York school dedicated to educating Native-American boys.
Eric Schneiderman
For the professors in the academy, for the humanities generally, misery is more amenable to analysis: happiness is a harder nut to crack.
Ian Mcewan
‘We Will Rock You’ is one of my favorite shows. I first saw it when I was a student at the Royal Academy and loved it.
Rachel Tucker
At my academy, I have a full 20×20 canvas but I don’t have any ropes around it and do that for a reason so I don’t get on my back on the ropes.
Tony Ferguson
Darwinism is still very much alive, utterly dominating biology. Despite the fact that no one has ever been able to prove the creation of a single distinct species by Darwinist means, Darwinism dominates the academy and the media.
Ben Stein
I will never win an Oscar, and do you know why? First of all, because I’m not Jewish. Secondly, I make too much money for all those old farts in the Academy.
Clint Eastwood
There’s always something special when the service academies play each other that’s not in any other game. This is not a regular game, and everyone involved knows that.
Roger Staubach
These five-and-a-half seasons I was working with Ajax as the head coach, and four-and-a-half as the trainer of the academy, it cost me less energy than the eight months of Inter and Crystal Palace.
Frank de Boer
When I was 14, I started playing for Taye Academy in the city of Owerri, and then my whole life became football. I dreamed of playing for certain clubs, or going places I’d never been before, but I just kept my ambitions to myself because I never really expected that I could get to these places.
Kelechi Iheanacho
I’ve been very blessed, I think, or what do you call it… mmm… lucky to get at this stage what I have. It’s not like I’ve come from acting school and done work at an academy or something. I feel I’ve been given a very huge chance and opportunity.
Katrina Kaif
If we are encouraging kids to go into academies, then presumably we are selling them the dream that they can play first-team football.
Gareth Southgate
It is clear that through the partnerships between Global Cool and the International Indian Film Academy, Indian cinema has the potential to provide great leadership by exciting its enormous and enthusiastic audience to do their bit to save the planet
Prince Charles
I was always the guy who made jokes and ribbed people at parties. After I went to the American Academy of Dramatic Arts I got sidetracked into clubs and started doing comedy.
Don Rickles
I grew up a big baseball fan. I thought I knew a lot about the game, but I didn’t realise that all these American Major League Baseball teams have their own private academies in the Dominican Republic to find good players and bring them over to make money for their teams.
Ryan Fleck
Most actresses save their best gown of the award season for the Academy, so it truly is a red carpet full of the fashion’s creme de la creme.
Ashlan Gorse Cousteau
Well, I went to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy – I went to the conservatory – for acting.
Christopher Jackson
I tell my kids in the Academy at Newcastle to watch Henry. He plays with such a swagger, not an arrogance, and that is a great quality. He always looks so comfortable. You talk about cars going from 0 to 60 in a matter of seconds, and he is like that. He just explodes. I could sit there for hours and watch him.
Peter Beardsley
The London ‘Academy’ has seen fit recently to scoff at the critics who have been exercising themselves ove rthe so-called art of the Short Story… But the new Short Story has gained more individuality. It supports the magazines and has invaded the newspapers
Henry Seidel Canby
I’ll be honest with you: I’d rather have BAFTA over an Academy Award any day. Because it’s just cool.
Rene Russo
I actually happened to be in Haiti right before the earthquake in 2010. I was there already with the organization I work with now, Artists for Peace and Justice, visiting the primary school that I had adopted, the Academy for Peace and Justice in Port-au-Prince. I came back, and within days, the earthquake happened.
Olivia Wilde
Academy Awards don’t really solve anything.
Richard LaGravenese
To make money, it may be important to win the Academy Award, for it might mean another ten million dollars at the box office.
Don Simpson
I certainly never intended for myself an academic career and, were the academy to suffer, I’d just go do something else. I don’t have a commitment to it or to really, frankly, almost any institution that assumes that it has to be stable forever.
Clay Shirky
To your care and recommendation am I indebted for having replaced a half-blind mathematician with a mathematician with both eyes, which will especially please the anatomical members of my Academy.
Frederick The Great
In high school I was voted the girl most likely to become a nun. That may not be impressive to you, but it was quite an accomplishment at the Hebrew Academy.
Rita Rudner
I began serving my country when I was 18 years old and entered the U.S. Naval Academy.
Mikie Sherrill
For a lot of filmmakers, their first goal is to be successful and make some money. But once people start doing that, the real goal is then to win an Academy Award. Because when they do, they know that their obit is going to start out, “Academy Award winner so-and-so.”
Robert Osborne
‘Room’ is a very subtly-made film, and directing awards tend to go to the flashier stuff, but it’s the Director’s section of the academy that make the decision, so I’m very proud they can see something in what I directed and wanted to reward it.
Lenny Abrahamson
I wanted to start a proper academy and recruit juniors from all over Pakistan following my retirement after the World Open in 1993 but there was no support.
Jahangir Khan
This moment is so much bigger than me. It’s for every nameless, faceless woman of colour that now has a chance because this door tonight has been opened.
Halle Berry
Y Tu Mama Tambien’ is one of the first unrated movies to be nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. But many video stores won’t take a movie that’s not rated, so I had to make the movie an R.
Alfonso Cuaron
…I have come to make distinctions between what I call the academy and literature, the moral equivalents of church and God. The academy may lie, but literature tries to tell the truth.
Dorothy Allison
You know,’ I whispered, ‘some girls might think it’s creepy having a boy watch them sleep.’ He smirked and pointed to himself. ‘Spy.’ ‘Oh.’ I nodded. ‘Right. So you’re a trained Peeping Tom.’ ‘Product of the best peeping academies in the country.’ ‘Well, now I feel much better.’ ‘You should.
Ally Carter
I count myself fortunate to be able to contribute to this work; and the great interest which the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has shown in my work and the recognition that it has paid to my past successes, convince me that I am not on the wrong track.
Pieter Zeeman
Great horror films don’t win Academy Awards.
Wes Craven
Why should someone be allowed to remain a voting member of the Academy if they are no longer active in the industry?
Roger Ross Williams
I went to trials at Northants academy and got in. It was a crossroads between cricket and football.
Ben Chilwell
There is another domain that we consider relevant and having good prospects – marine biology. For many years this region [Russian Far East] has been home for one of the leading institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Marine Biology.
Vladimir Putin
When a scout recommends a brilliant right back or a coach recommends one from our academy, we want the manager to weigh up what is right for the team.
Ed Woodward
My parents wanted to keep me away from girls, so they sent me to a Catholic boy’s school, the Loyola Academy in Chicago.
Neal Katyal
While I was studying film at the Academy, the problems started. I wasn’t a political activist directly in the time of Saddam [Hussein], because the dictator was so cruel and brutal that no one could criticize or complain. I felt futile and empty. The only solution in Iraq was to run away.
Hassan Blasim
My enthusiasm for joining the New York Film Academy is predicated on my personal explorations into video as well as a sense of responsibility to share my extended experience of photography with committed students in both mediums.
Ralph Gibson
Our goal is for Khan Academy’s software and content to be the best possible learning experience and for it to be for everyone, for free, forever. This is why we are a non-profit, and it’s also what drives our small team and supporters.
Sal Khan
In 1996, I took advantage of some favourable circumstances to propose to the state of the Ticino Canton the foundation of the Academy of Architecture and, with it, an Italian-speaking university in Switzerland.
Mario Botta
