Bill Janklow

Arthur Helps
I was brought up to express myself only when asked to express myself, and then to do so in a way that’s pleasing to hear. But I’ve always had a need to make my presence known. I was just sort of born that way, I guess. It’s my natural tendency.

Michel Gondry

Richard Gere

These days we seem more bound to our bosses than ever before. We even identify our own selves with the jobs we do: ‘What do you do?’ is the first question we ask each other at parties, as if a job title could express a fundamental truth about our personality.
Tom Hodgkinson
Fashion is chaotic, and it can be an aggravation, too, but it is at its best when it allows you to express yourself.
John Malkovich
When I create a song, I immediately think about what I’m going to wear when I perform that song. I think about the music video treatment and about how I’m going to look on stage when I perform the record. The connection is so obvious that it’s a single package. An outfit, to me, is almost a tool to express the music.
G-Dragon
I’ve never had a divorce, but I’ve seen so many of my friends, my sister, my family go through that stuff, so I try to write for the people that can’t write about it. I take on their sorrow, so I’m able to kind of express it, or their joy.
Dolly Parton
It is refreshing to be able to express my views without having to toe a party line. It has got me into trouble on the odd occasion, but I am not going to stop saying what I think.
Pauline Hanson
I like people and get along, and I’m afraid to express my anger and my rage.
Fisher Stevens
It is painful to relive things that have caused emotional crises or whatever and find ways to express that musically.
Eric Clapton
I guess I probably make violent films partly because I can’t express my anger in my real life very well.
Park Chan-wook
To grasp the full significance of life is the actor’s duty; to interpret it his problem; and to express it his dedication.
James Dean
I write to express my thoughts, my feelings. I want people to think.
Mattie Stepanek
In all realms of life it takes courage to stretch your limits, express your power, and fulfill your potential… it’s no different in the financial realm.
Suze Orman
I was never a good student. I had to be dragged into kindergarten. It was hard to sit and listen to somebody talk. I wanted to be out, educated by experience and adventure, and I didn’t know how to express that.
Robert Redford
I don’t express a lot of things that I feel; I kind of register things.
Kim Cattrall
Having knowledge but lacking the power to express it clearly is no better than never having any ideas at all.
Pericles
The further the music develops, the more complex the apparatus used by the composer to express his thoughts becomes.
Gustav Mahler
But the basic difficulty still remains: It is the expansion of Federal power, about which I wish to express my alarm. How easily we embrace such business.
Everett Dirksen
God has to speak to each person in their own language, in their own idioms. Take Spanish, Chinese. You can express the same thought, but to different people you have to use a different language. It’s the same in religion.
Huston Smith
If you have a great idea, you should be able to communicate it as well. It’s like the sound of one hand clapping. You have a great idea but aren’t able to express it – well, how great was the idea?
Douglas Coupland
If you express yourself too much, you’re considered weak.
Sylvester Stallone
I have no words to express and completely speechless to talk about him. I am a big fan of Vidyut.
Urvashi Rautela
I think we run into issues when our online brands are not rooted in who we are, and I think we need to have explicit discussions with ourselves about who we want to be, what we want to represent, and how we want to express that.
Amanda Gorman
I always had music growing up, but music was also like a journal. It was like my personal diary or personal journal. A lot of the things I couldn’t express to an individual, I would express them in my music.
Kevin Gates
People call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat or a prostitute.
Rebecca West
Nothing I read about grief seemed to exactly express the craziness of it; which was the interesting aspect of it to me – how really tenuous our sanity is.
Joan Didion
It is important to express oneself… provided the feelings are real and are taken from your own experience.
Berthe Morisot
As a stand up, and often in acting, there is no place for the most intense feelings. Rage, genuine sorrow, naked hope… These things don’t fit on a comedy stage and if you act you’ll get to express them once in a while. Music is a place for the intensely personal.
Hal Sparks
When people in stadiums do the Wave, it’s the group-mind collective organism spontaneously organizing itself to express an emotion, pass time, and reflect the joy of seeing the rhythms of many as one, a visual rhyming or music in which everyone senses where the motion is going.
Jerry Saltz
Others too would occasionally entertain and privately express such doubts; though we all had been most solemnly warned by the cruel murder of Saint Francis.
Maria Monk
I saw the Village as a place you could escape to, to express yourself. When I first went there, I wrote and performed poetry. Then I drew portraits for a couple of years. It took a while before I thought about picking up a guitar.
Richie Havens
Makeup is not a mask that covers up your beauty; it’s a weapon that helps you express who you are from the inside.
Michelle Phan
I really understand what that process is all about and how important it is, especially with young folk and creative folk that love looking for some platform that makes it easier for them to express themselves.
Mick Fleetwood
That’s one of the lucky things about getting the success later on. I know how I want to dress, I know what kind of house I want to live in, I just know more about myself, and that’s true about the roles I want to play and what parts of myself I want to express. You’re just more in touch with yourself.
Naomi Watts
When I was younger, I was terrified to express anger because it would often kick-start a horrible reaction in the men in my life. So I bit my tongue. I was left to painstakingly deal with the aftermath of my avoidance later in life, in therapy or through the lyrics of my songs.
Alanis Morissette
In abstract painting, I worried about the limited range of possibilities that, as time went on, became increasingly important to me. I wanted to express or deal with differences that an all-over paint and canvas ‘presence’ neutralized.
Richard Diebenkorn
There’s just a lot of stuff that really moves me, and I don’t know how to express it, and I just want to try to do the best I can and surround myself with good people who don’t invalidate me.
Cat Power
Don’t be afraid to express yourself through fashion!
Chanel Iman
I live for football, and my real passion is just to go out there and express myself and show everybody what I’m capable of doing. It’s what I’ve always known since I was a kid.
Aaron Ramsey
To express to you in mere words, our personal feelings on this occasion you must know to be impossible, and particularly so for one who normally has to describe only things outside himself.
Melvin Calvin
When you are in a live-action movie, you have so many more options to express yourself. You can use your body and your gestures and facial expressions. When you are doing an animated movie, you really only have your voice.
Jesse Eisenberg
I needed freedom to really express myself. That’s really what Justified is about.
Justin Timberlake
Acting has always been a way for me to express the emotions I had buried. If I hadn’t acted, I would have gone insane. In my acting class, I could let out my real tears and everyone thought it was the character. But no, it was me.
Tony Leung Chiu-Wai
Pizza Express has been a real godsend for me. I’ve been working there for several years, six weeks a year. You can go to work every night and play. It’s a nice little club. It’s just about the right size for me, about 150 people.
Mose Allison
Well, I mean, you have an emotion, you want to express it. You don’t just look in the camera and do it. You want to hide from the embarrassment of your brother saying you’re not allowed to come into my town.
Anthony Quinn
This business switching styles can’t be done honestly by one man. As soon as he can play his instrument well, he can express himself, and all his life he has only one self.
Jimmy Rushing
I thought ‘Pineapple Express’ was hilarious.
J. B. Smoove
If I’m feeling something, I have a lot of different ways to express it, you know? I can write an article about it. I can write a screenplay about it. I can act in someone’s thing.
Josh Radnor
Without moral progress, stimulated by faith in God, immorality in all its forms will proliferate and strangle goodness and human decency. Mankind will not be able to fully express the potential nobility of the human soul unless faith in God is strengthened.
James E. Faust
Ever since I can remember, I drew, and visual arts have been my main way to express myself. I like dancing, although I’ve never done that very seriously. It’s something I’d like to explore more.
Hunter Schafer
Film is just a great medium to express yourself and a great environment to work around.
John Boyega
I don’t want to express my opinion about actual politics, because if I do, I have to be responsible for my decision.
Haruki Murakami
At 6 years old, the ice became a place for me to express myself. Because I was so shy off the ice, it became my safe haven, with music and freedom and self-expression. That was my emotional outlet.
Kristi Yamaguchi
It is my express wish that in awarding the prizes no consideration be given to the nationality of the candidates, but that the most worthy shall receive the prize, whether he be Scandinavian or not.
Alfred Nobel
These happy endings all express the weak and sly promise that the world is not rotten and out of joint but meaningful and ultimately in excellent condition.
Douglas Sirk
I never felt any attraction towards violence. I never tried to express myself through violence. Violence is a language.
Elie Wiesel
What a piece of work is a man, how noble in reason, how infinite in faculties, in form and moving how express and admirable, in action how like an angel, in apprehension how like a god.
William Shakespeare
There are matters in the Bible, said to be done by the express commandment of God, that are shocking to humanity and to every idea we have of moral justice.
Thomas Paine
I’m pretty expressive. And when I love something or love someone, I express that.
August Alsina
Failure is fantastic, because you meet yourself and get to know your limitations. This is how I express myself, and I can’t do it any other way.
Billy Childish
The two genres that probably take the most flack in literature – they are young adult and romance right now. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that these are genres that provide places for women to express desire and love for adventure, for the opportunity to be placed to heroic roles.
Leigh Bardugo
I just express myself in any way I feel is appropriate at the moment.
Herbie Hancock
Now, what we are not talking about, what you’re really coming to, is what compromises one makes so that the listener understands somewhat of what you’re doing, what you’re trying to express.
Leo Ornstein
Because Bin Laden’s culture doesn’t permit the worship of images, they understand how powerful images are. We wouldn’t have thought of creating a visual bomb. In a way, he’s chopped down two iconic buildings, and used our very truth imagery, to express himself. It’s fascinating… I mean, dreadful.
Alison Jackson
Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi is just great. You get yourself in a hot bath to soften up your skin and then use this, and it really works. Plus, it’s so easy to do, and you don’t have to leave the house, so whenever you want to put sandals on, you don’t have to worry about going to the salon.
Abbey Clancy
I have to make sure that I don’t silence myself about the things that I believe in, because sometimes the fear creeps in of ‘What if fewer people watch the show or fewer people hire me because I express my politics?’ For me, the commitment is to never be quiet just because I’m in the public eye.
Kerry Washington
As far as I have been able to understand, the Japanese seem to keep things close to the vest. Friendly but remote and polite to the point of being invisible. It is in the music, literature, film and art that the Japanese really seem to express themselves.
Henry Rollins
Letters have to pass two tests before they can be classed as good: they must express the personality both of the writer and of the recipient.
E. M. Forster
It’s hard to be creative and to see your potential when you’ve not even got ground zero, when you’ve not even got the foundations to be able to express yourself.
Bugzy Malone
I think there are a whole host of things that are civil rights, and then there are other things – such as traditional marriage – that, I think, express a community’s concern and regard for a particular institution.
Barack Obama
Sometimes I feel like I used to be a person that liked to express himself a lot and put my feelings out there.
Fred Durst
True Americanism is practical idealism. Its aims, instead of being materialistic and mechanical, are idealistic to the point of being Utopian. In this way, the U.S. can provide and express ideals that strike a chord in humans everywhere – a declaration of independence on behalf of all the peoples of the world.
Maurice Saatchi
People of faith should be able to have confidence in their right to freely express and live their beliefs.
Donald Wuerl
There are no ‘political prisoners’ as such in Bahrain. People are not arrested because they express their views, we only have criminals.
Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa
I had learning disabilities, and I couldn’t express myself in the written word.
Laura Linney
In poetry you can express almost inexpressible feelings. You can express the pain of loss, you can express love. People always turn to poetry when someone they love dies, when they fall in love.
Erica Jong
In externals we advance with lightening express speed, in modes of thought and sympathy we lumber on in stage-coach fashion.
Frances E. Willard
Since my subjects have always been my sensations, my states of mind and the profound reactions that life has been producing in me, I have frequently objectified all this in figures of myself, which were the most sincere and real thing that I could do in order to express what I felt inside and outside of myself.
Frida Kahlo
The Midnight Express and the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express were the greatest tag team rivalry of all time and drew more money than any other tag team rivalry probably in history, and I did manage the WWF champion and WWF Tag Team champion at different points in time but my phone hasn’t rung and I haven’t lost sleep over it.
Jim Cornette
The gracious, eternal God permits the spirit to green and bloom and to bring forth the most marvelous fruit, surpassing anything a tongue can express and a heart conceive.
Johannes Tauler
It’s a big responsibility to help someone express themselves as an artist.
Christina Aguilera
‘Painting like a child’ isn’t a negative for me… it’s something only great artists can really achieve. The childlike quality of some of Picasso’s drawings is precisely what makes them so masterful and extraordinary; the ability to express complete visions, feelings and portraits through a continuous line.
Damien Hirst
I prefer to express myself physically, or non-verbally. I prefer just to react without having a lot of dialogue.
Marisa Tomei
I am a huge fashion fan. It’s a really cool way to express yourself.
Kiernan Shipka
People feel uncomfortable talking about racial issues out of fear that if they express things, they will be characterized in a way that’s not fair. I think that there is still a need for a dialogue about things racial that we’ve not engaged in.
Eric Holder
I think the American people should express their preferences, and we’ll accept their choice.
Vladimir Putin
Hospitality is present when something happens for you. It is absent when something happens to you. Those two simple prepositions – for and to – express it all.
Danny Meyer
As the mother teaches her children how to express themselves in their language, so one Gypsy musician teaches the other. They have never shown any need for notation.
Franz Liszt
Hate is only a form love that hasn’t found a way to express itself logically.
Lil Wayne
My memory of those places is better than my pictures. That’s why I get much more satisfaction out of shooting thematic work that has to do with an idea that I’m searching for, or searching to express.
Leonard Nimoy
I’m always trying to find optimistic ways to express myself.
Michael Franti
I always saw Michael Gambon wearing madly psychedelic socks, and I always thought that’s it is one of the few areas where men can really express colour and have a bit of a dandyish quality to their outfit.
Daniel Radcliffe
I didn’t have to express myself to anybody; I would just sing. And most of the times, when I initially used to sing, I used to get scared of my own voice.
Atif Aslam
I think it’s an okay thing to express yourself.
Britney Spears
I’m not a politician; I’m lucky to be a filmmaker and to be able to express myself through the films I make.
Mathieu Kassovitz
Initially, I started writing music because I wanted to express my thoughts and get what was going on in my head out to the world.
Yungblud
I wanted to be a writer as a teen… so storytelling was my first love. In my late teens, design became an obsession as I realized that I could express myself through the medium. Much later, when I founded Fuseproject in 1999, our slogan became ‘design brings stories to life.’
Yves Behar
As a solo artist, my desire is to express myself through my music.
Jessica Jung
The life of a play begins and ends in the moment of performance. This is where author, actors, and directors express all they have to say. If the event has a future, this can only lie in the memories of those who were present and who retained a trace in their hearts.
Peter Brook
I think I just have this need to be a storyteller. That’s why I wasn’t a great dancer – I couldn’t articulate a story. I was a better choreographer. I have the need to to just express myself in that way. I can’t explain it.
Rosie Perez
I love songwriting. It’s second to my love for singing in how I express myself.
Michael Bolton
With the sax, I learned technique well enough so that it feels like part of my body, and I just express myself. That’s where I want to get in golf.
Kenny G
Maybe it has something to do with turning 30. I don’t feel as shy or nervous or self-conscious. I have more confidence that I can handle what life brings me. I don’t feel scared to have an idea and express it.
Michelle Williams
Britain’s a funny place and there’s a lot of funny people coming out of there and a lot of people are finding mediums to express themselves.
Brendan Coyle
Words are intermediary between thought and things. We express ourselves really not through words, which are only signs, but through what they signify – through things.
George Edward Woodberry
I’ve had a terrific life, from building one company to be the second largest company in the securities industry and merging that into American Express, and becoming president of that company.
Sanford I. Weill
But most people don’t come up to me and express a lot of emotion.
Jim Hodges
When I was a teenager, I thought how great it would be if only I could write novels in English. I had the feeling that I would be able to express my emotions so much more directly than if I wrote in Japanese.
Haruki Murakami
These are some of the things for which we believe the American people owe no little gratitude to the Dutch; and these are the things for which today, speaking in the name of the American people, we venture to express their heartfelt thanks.
Seth Low
Dance is a great way to express yourself.
Darcey Bussell
I’ve changed my life in a lot of ways. I’m a mom, a wife, and a Christian. Some of the things I expressed in my early 20s aren’t what I care to express right now.
Cheryl James
Many attempts have been made by writers on art and poetry to define beauty in the abstract, to express it in the most general terms, to find some universal formula for it.
Walter Pater
I want authenticity, I don’t want players to make a show. I want players to be able to be themselves on court and express all kinds of emotions.
Patrick Mouratoglou
They plan to ride into the White House on the Sweet Talk Express. Well, think again. Bush and Cheney are not compassionate conservatives. They are ruthless reactionaries.
Patricia Ireland
By reshaping or decorating our outer selves, we express our inner sense of self: ‘I like that’ becomes ‘I’m like that.’
Virginia Postrel
It is difficult to express in words the feelings of happiness and pride which fill me.
Gherman Titov
If you express yourself too much. you’re overacting; if you underplay it too much, it can come across as wooden.
Ben Hardy
I express things through characters because I have a fear that my own voice is irritating because that’s been said to me.
Maria Bamford
Acting gives you freedom to express your thoughts.
Abhimanyu Singh
Getting up and having the courage to share with people, all people, and even just being asked to sing, first of all, that’s all part of how I express my identity.
Jessica Mauboy
The Soviet Union had only one party. You couldn’t express yourself freely; you couldn’t admit belief in God. And yet this terrible regime understood that human beings have to express themselves, through music, even at a bad level. All kids studied music automatically, just as they did maths or languages or sport.
Andris Nelsons
I don’t think the goal is, ‘How big a star did you ever become?’ I think the goal is, ‘Were you able to express yourself?’
Albert Brooks
Everybody has a creative potential and from the moment you can express this creative potential, you can start changing the world.
Paulo Coelho
I know how fiction matters to me, because if I want to express myself, I have to make up a story. Some people call it imagination. To me, it’s not imagination. It’s just a way of watching.
Haruki Murakami
My job is usually to express emotion as freely as possible.
Meryl Streep
There’s this large trend – I think the next trend in the Web, sort of Web 2.0 – which is to have users really express, offer, and market their own content, their own persona, their identity.
John Doerr
Technology will never last if it ignores human beings’ basic instinct to express and discover through expression.
Lemn Sissay
I grew up dancing, so that was always my first dream. But I also have a passion for acting. I would love to step inside of a character and be somebody that I’m not, because I feel like it just gives me an outlet to express myself without being me.
Normani Kordei
I want to encourage students during school hours to express their views, to discuss their views in the classroom or the playground.
Gladys Berejiklian
I get along very well with Paul Ryan personally. We have very deep differences on policy issues. But we express them civilly.
Chris Van Hollen
There’s a way to express femininity and independence and strength without going for hanging fruit.
Iliza Shlesinger
In minor crises, the preacher can extract himself emotionally and allow others to express grief and fear and doubt while he remains strong.
James A. Forbes
Some things can be perfectly expressed by sound alone and images would only be disturbing. Other times, sound would be possible, but visuals are much stronger and closer to what I want to express and then again, they sometimes overlap perfectly.
Alva Noto
Writing songs helped me figure out how to communicate with other people. I finally figured out that if I could express something in a song, I could probably express it in my real life, too.
Sharon Van Etten
I personally do not listen to a lot of music. It helps keep my mind free. I don’t want to sound like someone else from the get-go. I want to express myself and the world in my head.
Victoria Legrand
In London I feel free; nobody bothers anyone and everyone is free to express themselves.
Manolo Blahnik
It’s important to me that I should be free to express myself.
George Michael
Sometimes I get a little confused because with dancing I can express my emotions with my body. With acting you have to do it with your face and your expressions, and then with animated shows you have to use your voice and use your inflections. So it’s definitely a challenge to transfer from each genre of entertainment.
Alyson Stoner
A writer should express criticism and indignation at the dark side of society and the ugliness of human nature, but we should not use one uniform expression.
Mo Yan
Violence is part of everybody’s life, whether you like or express it or not. My work utilises all the energies that I have, and part of it is violent, and I’d rather it be out than in.
Cornelia Parker
I thoroughly enjoyed working on Enemy of the State. Tony Scott is an important director, and has an amazing ability to express himself, and he doesn’t do it in musical terms, he does it in emotional terms. I got along really well with him.
Trevor Rabin
Now I’ve devoted my life to making sure that I can be a trailblazer for any other African American kids or any other gay kids or any other kids that just feel weird or uncomfortable and have their own issues and don’t know how to express themselves. I want to be like a beacon for those kids now.
Todrick Hall
We should all have the opportunity to express what we want to express.
Richard King
Our language has wisely sensed the two sides of being alone. It has created the word loneliness to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word solitude to express the glory of being alone.
Paul Tillich
I’m happy to help Crest Whitestrips on their mission to inspire photographers everywhere to capture smile moments and would encourage aspiring photographers to express themselves through their photos.
Nigel Barker
I can’t tell you the thrill and joy of when I was cast in my first Broadway show. Granted, it was ‘Starlight Express’ and it was exhausting, but it was my first time on Broadway, and there was nothing like it.
Bryan Batt
In case anyone needs reminding, it was the relentless drive of the tourism industry and kowtowing State Department bureaucrats that led to the Bush-era Visa Express Program, which relaxed visa policies, eliminated in-person consulate interviews and opened the door to the 9/11 hijackers.
Michelle Malkin
‘Dear Society’ really is my letter to society where I express the anguish I’ve been caused from such an image-based industry and culture we live in.
Madison Beer
We all need ways to express ourselves, and poetry is one of mine.
Jack Prelutsky
If you do not express your own original ideas, if you do not listen to your own being, you will have betrayed yourself.
Rollo May
The fact that our government is using instruments of government like the IRS to punish its opponents, this is not the kind of thing that is a Democrat or a Republican issue. This is an American issue… A lot of people do not feel free to express themselves.
Ben Carson
I have a desire that I want to make people feel happy through my music. I’m always trying to find optimistic ways to express myself.
Michael Franti
The universal principle of etymology in all languages: words are carried over from bodies and from the properties of bodies to express the things of the mind and spirit. The order of ideas must follow the order of things.
Giambattista Vico
You’re more constrained when you’re wealthy. Or when you’re making a bigger film and people complain about no budgets; but having a small amount of money to make a film means you’re at your absolute freest to express yourself as an artist.
John Carney
Between the ’80s with The Midnight Express and the ’90s with The Heavenly Bodies, and then in the 2000s on the reunions with The Midnights, I think only Bobo Brazil and The Sheik had a longer-running rivalry.
Jim Cornette
On the other side of that coin, and far outweighing it, is the fact that I’ve been able to use genre of Fantasy/Horror and express my opinion, talk a little about society, do a little bit of satire and that’s been great, man. A lot of people don’t have that platform.
George A. Romero
What the people are within, the buildings express without.
Louis Sullivan
I think they saw me as something like a deliverer, a way out. My means of expression, my music, was a way in which a lot of people wished they could express themselves and couldn’t.
Little Richard
If you’re differently-abled, if you’re a person of color, if you express your identity in a way that’s different from the norm, for whatever reason, there’s an implicit bias where people, frankly, sometimes take you less seriously.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez
I want our young Latinos and Latinas to write their hearts out and express their hearts out and let us all listen to each other.
Juan Felipe Herrera
It’s only recently that we’ve discovered that the artist’s inner self is somehow more important than the public world. I’m happier to create exterior pieces for the world rather than to express something I deeply feel or wish to say.
Peter Ackroyd
There’s a lot of rage… you have to express it somehow. If I didn’t express it in song, I’d become incredibly violent.
Siobhan Fahey
I love figure skating and what I am able to express creatively. I want to leave a legacy in the sport.
Patrick Chan
I want to always be classy and honest, and I always want to have fun with music, and if I can’t really express who I am through my music, then it’s not really fun anymore.
India Arie
I’ve been reading poetry publicly for 20 years, and this is what you do – you express, you sometimes dig a bit to get a conversation started. That’s the point of poetry. You’re supposed to go, ‘Hmmmm,’ and ‘Woooh!’
Jill Scott
We used the Western style to express our own themes and stories. But don’t forget that our heritage includes The Thousand and One Nights.
Naguib Mahfouz
I actually bought the argument that if we democratized Iraq, we could create a space for venting some of the stuff that’s going on in the Middle East in these autocratic regimes that is expressing itself through jihadism, because it has nowhere else to express itself.
Andrew Sullivan
We must learn how to live in the space of inner peace in our everyday lives. This takes consistent, conscious effort because I know so many black women are hurting and sad, and we don’t easily express our heartache or show our wounds.
Susan L. Taylor
During this earlier period of his activity Voltaire seems to have been trying – half unconsciously, perhaps – to discover and to express the fundamental quality of his genius.
Lytton Strachey
The first memory I have was my sisters dancing to the radio when they played records by Benny Goodman and Harry James and of the sort. But the record that got me was a record by Derek Sampson, who was a young guy, called ‘Boogie Express,’ and it was boogie-woogie. Really, it was on fire, and that got me.
Jerry Leiber
We were against the war in Vietnam and for voter registration and social issues. Everybody has their choices, and the obligation of a comedian is first to entertain. And if you’re so inclined, and you have some bigger thought, make sure you express it, because that’s a gift.
Tom Smothers
In terms of having views and being prepared to express them, yes, I think New Zealand’s had a leadership role in a lot of things.
Helen Clark
I wanted to do journalism, as I was an idealist. Then, in my second year of journalism, I realized that in real life, things don’t work the way you expect them to. I realized that I could express my ideas better through films.
Nithya Menen
It’s not the physical location of birth that defines citizenship, but whether your parents are citizens, and the express or implied consent to jurisdiction of the sovereign.
Phyllis Schlafly
The artist sees the tragic to such a degree that he is compelled to express the non-tragic.
Piet Mondrian
We need to make sure that there’s art in the school. Why? Why should art be in the school? Because if art isn’t in a school, then a guy like Steve Jobs doesn’t get a chance to really express himself because in order for art to meet technology, you need art.
LL Cool J
We younger Negro artists who create now intend to express our individual dark-skinned selves without fear or shame. If white people are pleased, we are glad. If they are not, it doesn’t matter. We know we are beautiful. And ugly too.
Langston Hughes
My mother at a young age put me in bilingual, so my strength is really more in Spanish. Even though I live and I was born and raised in the States, you know, in the Bronx, in Spanish I get my point across. And when I’m writing music, when I’m doing music, it’s easier for me, and I know exactly how to express myself.
Romeo Santos
If we approach other people understanding our own value, being confident in who we are, being centered and grounded, it’s actually easier for us to connect with them because we can listen more deeply and we can express ourselves more authentically without fear of being judged or not being enough.
Vivek Murthy
We were all miners in our family. My father was a miner. My mother is a miner. These are miner’s hands, but we were all artists, I suppose, really. But I was the first one who had the urge to express myself on paper rather than at the coalface.
Alan Bennett
When it aims to express a love of the world it refuses to conceal the many reasons why the world is hard to love, though we must love it because we have no other, and to fail to love it is not to exist at all.
Mark Van Doren
It’s cool to express myself, but I’ve had to learn that doing interviews isn’t completely therapy – spilling everything about yourself isn’t healthy all the time. But I’ve been through things that have made me a stronger person, and if I can help some people, I will.
Fergie
When I go to the Philippines, I would like to take the time to express my gratitude by meeting with my Filipino fans first.
Hyun Bin
I did a couple of American Express commercials.
Jason Dohring
We’re living at a time where if you do a Google search for a ‘show, review and network,’ you’ll get ‘The New York Times’ and Pete Billingsley from a town you’ve never heard of on the same results page. It’s kind of democratizing the process so that everyone has access to a distribution system to express themselves.
J. J. Abrams
There’s kind of a gift in being gay because, if you come out, you’re forced to express yourself.
Jonathan Groff
I believe that women should live for love, for motherhood and for intellect, and I believe we shouldn’t have to choose. And I believe that’s always been difficult for women, to express themselves intellectually, maternally, and passionately.
Erica Jong
My Gram said that I would get the role in whichever show God thought was right but it wouldn’t hurt to express a preference. I told her that I would like to do ‘The Brady Bunch’ because I’d have five other kids on the set to play with. God was listening.
Susan Olsen
And also, more and more businesses really want to do the right thing. They feel better about themselves, their workers feel better, and so do their customers. I think this is equally true in the transnational corporations, but it is harder to express in those situations.
Paul Hawken
I am quite quiet: I don’t feel as though I have to express myself with words too often. Maybe I should do more.
Sean Bean
I acted professionally for about eight years, and I was writing all that time but never showed anybody any of it. There just came a point after those eight years when I thought, ‘There’s a lot I can do with acting – there are a lot of things I can express and do creatively, but there are also limitations.’
James Franco
I’m a person of faith, and the language that I use to define my faith, the symbols and metaphors that I rely upon to express my faith, are those provided by Islam because they make the most sense to me.
Reza Aslan
I have to pay a huge price to express myself. You get people asking to take photos all the time; you can’t ride the subway… I still ride the subway, but there’s always people sneaking photos or coming up to you.
Yung Lean
The proof that God has revealed himself to man by special and express communications, and that Christianity constitutes that revelation, is no part of these inquiries.
Simon Greenleaf
No, I think that a person writes a poem because they have an inner urge of something that they want to express, and I think it’s that inner urge that you want to express when you write a piece of music.
Leo Ornstein
If you have a certain wildness of spirit, a cabinet maker’s workshop is not the place to express it.
Daniel Day-Lewis
I find in music there’s a space and a language I can use to express things in ways I can’t describe conversationally.
Sufjan Stevens
Acting had been a hobby that turned into a career, the directing was a hobby that turned into a career and music just really allowed me to find another way to express myself.
Malcolm-Jamal Warner
Most women don’t play like guys do: they don’t wrestle, fight, get into brawls. They don’t know how to express themselves in a physical, active way.
Victoria Pratt
I like to express myself through the clothes that I wear.
Future
My opinion is that a poet should express the emotion of all the ages and the thought of his own.
Thomas Hardy
Pat O’Brien knows nothing. He’s on the Hell express.
Rob Corddry
Love cannot express the idea of music, while music may give an idea of love.
Hector Berlioz
I’ve never really played golf. With the sax, I learned technique well enough so that it feels like part of my body, and I just express myself. That’s where I want to get in golf.
Kenny G
I did a lot of thrift and vintage. I would mix those pieces into some of the more inexpensive items from Express, Gap, Old Navy, and Clothestime.
Katy Perry
The Igbo used to say that they built their own gods. They would come together as a community, and they would express a wish. And their wish would then be brought to a priest, who would find a ritual object, and the appropriate sacrifices would be made, and the shrine would be built for the god.
Chris Abani
We have been terrorised by what happened in America and we express our condolences to the American people who suffered from this unexpected catastrophe and a new world war.
Muammar al-Gaddafi
I grew up thinking that it’s okay to be sad, angry, and express your emotions. I have also banged doors and fought, as I have seen my mom do that when she would fight with my dad. Everything that I’ve learnt is from them, so I’ve never struggled to express myself.
Alia Bhatt
My dad was quiet, angry, shut down. So my thing is: I express everything that’s there. I want to get it all out.
Glen Hansard
Everyone has a responsibility to not only tolerate another person’s point of view, but also to accept it eagerly as a challenge to your own understanding. And express those challenges in terms of serving other people.
Arlo Guthrie
Secretly, I’m in awe of Broadway performers. I would love to perform at that level. I love the exchange with the audience. I love being able to sing and dance to express your emotions and the community and friendships that are formed when working on a theater piece.
Brianna Brown
Westminster politics is very unattractive, and people are channelling political energy into more inward questioning – there are a lot of musicians whose songs are all about feeling, and it’s almost like that’s the only safe place to express yourself.
Johnny Flynn
Art is elemental. Reason alone as it’s expressed in the sciences can’t be man’s complete answer to reality, and it can’t express everything that man can, wants to, and has to express. I think God built this into man. Art along with science is the highest gift God has given him.
Pope Benedict XVI
Who knows who will be on board? A couple of spies, for sure. At least one grand duke; a few beautiful woman, no doubt very rich and very troubled. Anything can happen and usually does on the Orient Express.
Morley Safer
The greatest service that can be offered to children who show personality traits or inclinations that might not be understood by the adults around them is to allow them to express their own unique humanity.
Wayne Dyer
We cannot erase what has been done. We can apologize for it. We can express our outrage. We can say to the American people and to the people of the world, this is not our way and we do not condone it, but we cannot change it and we cannot erase it.
Ben Nelson
Mathematicians may flatter themselves that they possess new ideas which mere human language is as yet unable to express.
James C. Maxwell
Fragrance, to me, is a scent that you can call your own, have other people identify you with, and also express the vibes that you’re feeling that day.
Devon Windsor
We aim to express the passion of our members in something actionable that we can all in fact do.
Joan Blades
I just see clothing as cloth, and I see it as art, and I see it as a way to express yourself artistically in this world.
Rain Dove
The inner me was always under attack by authority, by the way my parents wanted me to be brought up, by these English schools I went to. So I’ve always felt this kind of anti-authoritarian strain in me, pushing to express itself despite the obstacles.
Edward Said
I’m putting everything on the line in being able to express myself in a different way than rappers normally do. They might say, ‘It’s rap’ or ‘It’s R&B,’ but I’m stepping outside the box and making music for me and making music for the fans to understand me. I’m going the extra distance to be able to come across different.
Future
I enjoyed making people laugh. I discovered that I loved that power over them. On stage, I felt I could really express who I was for the first time.
Kim Cattrall
Some of my friends and family have tried to challenge me to do jokes that aren’t as self-deprecating, where I genuinely express my own opinion in my own voice.
Maria Bamford
I think it’s hard to describe my style in one sentence. It depends on how I’m feeling. Sometimes I’ll dress more street; other times, I’ll dress more classy. I have so many different ways that I can express myself, so my style is pretty versatile.
Divock Origi
It’s how I express myself – through storytelling and characters. They often reveal very intimate, vulnerable sides of myself.
Alexia Fast
American men are more open, they are readier to express their emotions, but they also get frightened easily. Italians are used to drama. For us, arguing, shouting is perfectly normal – for them it is inconceivable.
Elisabetta Canalis
I want to express myself to feel that what I feel is real. My joy, my pain, my anger.
Annabella Sciorra
With my music, I can express myself so much. A lot of the fans can sense that I’m relating to them something that’s quite personal.
Enya
In black Africa, one does not strike, one does not express, one walks right.
Yannick Noah
People want to express themselves – that’s what fashion is for. You can go to Target and get something that Rodarte designed for $34, but would you want to go buy the higher version for $3,400? I think most people would say no.
Kelly Cutrone
If there’s any place where you would express your deepest doubts, it would be church.
Rob Bell
I need to just be myself, express myself.
Young M.A
It’s technically extremely difficult to get down what you really mean, not what you think you mean, or what you think sounds good, but what’s really there, what you really have to express, in words that somehow convey that meaning in an approximate way.
Ruth Prawer Jhabvala
Being German, I think we don’t really express a lot of things.
Diane Kruger
I need to let people know who I am and instead of just trying to make great records, just be honest and make it more personal and make it more passionate, to make records with emotion and not be afraid to express that.
Future
I will not restrict myself. I want to do films and TV: both mediums are amazing to reach to the audience and express your art form, and if both are available, then why not exploit them?
Nora Fatehi
O public road, I say back I am not afraid to leave you, yet I love you, you express me better than I can express myself.
Walt Whitman
It is very true to say that work done by writers is quite often an attempt to give solid expression to that which is bothering them… They feel they have got it right if they express the stress.
Seamus Heaney
I’m very interested in dance, and I’m very interested in how people express themselves through movement. And of course, cinema is a kinetic art form. It’s almost the point of cinema – it’s time-based and movement-based.
Joe Wright
We spend most of our lives cutting down our ambitions because the world has told us to think small. Dreams express what your soul is telling you, so as crazy as your dream might seem – even to you – I don’t care: You have to let that out.
Eleni Zaude Gabre-Madhin
The industrial food system is so cruel and so horrific in its treatment of animals. It never asks the question: ‘Should a pig be allowed to express its pig-ness?’
Joel Salatin
The only thing that’s helped me get through some really hard times was just being able to write and express – it’s very cathartic for me. I’m hoping that, by writing and performing for other people, it affects them the same way.
Sharon Van Etten
Art is expression, and to have high expression you must have something high to express.
Goldwin Smith
Lazy people tend not to take chances, but express themselves by tearing down other’s work.
Ann Rule
It is good to express a thing twice right at the outset and so to give it a right foot and also a left one. Truth can surely stand on one leg, but with two it will be able to walk and get around.
Friedrich Nietzsche
Women inspire me. Women in the airports, around the country in different cities, destinations around the world, inspire me with the way they express their individuality. I love watching women and discovering all the ways each person uses a color, pattern, a style, even a lipstick color. I’m a people watcher.
Camila Alves
The real message of the Dance opens up the vistas of life to all who have the urge to express beauty with no other instrument than their own bodies, with no apparatus and no dependence on anything other than space.
Ruth St. Denis
I usually find several ways to express myself: different moods, different days, different voices, different things, ‘I’m lighthearted today, I’m gonna do this.’
Fred Durst
I have my ideas, I have my music and I also just enjoy showing off, so that’s a big part of it. Also, I like to get up onstage and behave insanely or express myself physically, and the band can get pretty silly.
Bruce Springsteen
I cannot express it: but surely you and everybody have a notion that there is, or should be, an existence of yours beyond you.
Emily Bronte
I allowed Rick Santorum to express views and ideas that the American people never would have had expressed.
Foster Friess
My coach and my parents both had this relationship to what I was doing, which was allowing me to express myself with chess. And so I could love it. I had a passion for it. I was expressing myself through chess, and I was learning about myself through chess.
Joshua Waitzkin
I can express all my views on the slavery question by quotations from Henry Clay.
Abraham Lincoln
For me, being independent is about being able to express myself exactly how I want to, instead of maximising profits.
AJ Tracey
It’s so great to be able to express the friendship between men.
Park Hyung-sik
My drawing skills probably froze around when I was 18… Now I’m more interested in the story, how the drawings, the layout can help express the stories and communicate them.
Bjarke Ingels
My life is art. Its how I express God.
Lisa Bonet
There are no words to adequately express my gratitude to the people.
J. Jayalalithaa
The interpretive element of ‘Lost’ – the fact that you immediately need, as soon as the episode is over, to seek out a community of people to express your own thoughts about it, understand what they thought about it and form an opinion – that’s the bread and butter of the show.
Damon Lindelof
It’s too easy to say that orange is happy and black is sad. To me, black is perfect. You can fill it with the emotion you want to express.
Ann Demeulemeester
Sometimes, the fact that you’re a footballer makes you think that racism can’t happen to you because you bring that passion and you express a lot of things. When it happened to me, I couldn’t believe it, and in that moment, I decided to walk off the pitch.
Samuel Eto’o
Neutrality is a negative word. It does not express what America ought to feel. We are not trying to keep out of trouble; we are trying to preserve the foundations on which peace may be rebuilt.
Woodrow Wilson
I always look at the motives behind each scene. You can play that out tonally with how you express yourself or you can do that with your physical expression, your physical presence. So I always think about what physical presence I want to embody in each scene.
Aidan Gallagher
I started writing songs when I was 10. It was a natural way to express myself as a kid. It wasn’t until I started listening to jazz, joined the choir and picked up a guitar that my little hobby became something far more serious.
Kimbra
I don’t do anything specific for the stage. I’m just myself. I can’t stand still for five seconds. I’m normally quite active, so that just comes out on stage. If I see people react to me and my music, I just have to give back and express myself.
Shreya Ghoshal
In many ways, the young are more religiously minded than the older generations. I think it’s the flip side of an age of individualism. Youngsters are not afraid to tell you what they think, to express their faith and be quite exuberant about it.
Vincent Nichols
I realised one day that men are emotional cripples. We can’t express ourselves emotionally, we can only do it with anger and humour. Emotional stability and expression comes from women.
Bob Hoskins
When I hear people express extreme optimism about the Internet, I say, we’ve had it in mature form for about ten years. Macroeconomically speaking, those are about the worst 10 years we’ve had since about the 1930s. I don’t blame the Internet for that – that would be ridiculous.
Tyler Cowen
I want to express myself in a different way. I have a performing inclination.
Rowan Atkinson
While foreign competitors, French or Japanese or German, merrily bid for contracts abroad, American companies find themselves tangled in a web of legislation designed to express disapproval, block trade in certain commodities, or perhaps deny resources to disfavored or hostile regimes.
Elliott Abrams
It may be that that we can sing what we often cannot say, whether it be from shyness, fear, lack of the right words or the passion or dramatic gift to express them. More souls have rallied to more causes by the strains of music than by straining rhetoric.
Richard Rodgers
To confer dignity, forgive. To express contempt, forget.
Mason Cooley
As Secretary of Housing, I do have to express alarm, signal the alarm if you will, that the potential for homelessness to grow is there.
Henry Cisneros
Songs are a way to express what I have felt. A way to understand what happened to me or to other people.
Yael Naim
I always prayed that God would give me the wisdom and the vision to do the things on this earth that I was supposed to do to express His life and love and His will.
Billy Ray Cyrus
I keep guitars that are, you know, the neck’s a little bit bent and it’s a little bit out of tune. I want to work and battle it and conquer it and make it express whatever attitude I have at that moment. I want it to be a struggle.
Jack White
I make my music to express everything I feel is necessary to communicate at a given time. Through music, I can express myself with statements that are more nuanced and more contradictory than factual details.
Sophie
I was well indulged as a child by my relentlessly self-improving, working class parents to express myself.
Mike Myers
I’m part of the consumer culture… I’m just using the space I am given to express something that is out of the space so I’m part of the consumer system but I’m advocating stepping out. Which is a contradiction but I could be part of he consumer system and say, ‘let’s consume even more.’
Michel Gondry
Acting, for me, is exhausting. I’m always more energized by directing. It’s more intense to direct. I can pop in and express myself, then pop out again. It’s a huge passion for me.
Jodie Foster
Ultimately, it’s possible that social media platforms will be designed as templates that the users themselves customize in terms of the best way to express their community and experience of life, and brands will have to simply follow suit.
Simon Mainwaring
Chinese citizens have never had the right to really express their opinions; in the constitution it says you can, but in the real world it is more dangerous. In the west people think it’s a right they’re born with. Here it’s a right given by the government, and one that’s not really practised.
Ai Weiwei
We should remember that saying ‘I love you’ is only a beginning. We need to say it, we need to mean it, and most importantly we need consistently to show it. We need to both express and demonstrate love.
David A. Bednar
For a while, I was saying ‘no’ way too often. I turned down ‘An Officer and A Gentleman,’ ‘Splash’ and ‘Midnight Express.’ I could name you tons more. I would go off and experience life instead of working – I was learning to fly jets, went on an African safari, sailed the Caribbean – which wasn’t necessarily bad.
John Travolta
So, when the discussion about not using the term feminist came up at a conference workshop, I couldn’t believe it. The more I listened, the more I felt the need to express my passion about my identity as a feminist.
Betty Buckley
On principle, I always support the opinion of a population who express themselves through a referendum.
Matteo Salvini
I had to try and find a way to express happiness without sounding corny.
Daniel Johns
I’m thinking in terms of a point of departure, a field of action for performers to express an expressive need of mine which hopefully the context of music would convey.
John Eaton
I love fashion, and that’s how I express myself.
Victoria Beckham
When I have struggled with things like being Bruce Lee’s daughter, it’s his words that have guided me: his words that said that I just need to have faith in myself, believe in myself, and express myself.
Shannon Lee
What I need is to express my passion for life… It’s movement I’m interested in, the life in me, the life in humanity.
Juliette Binoche
My favorite song that I wrote is ‘Love Line.’ This was my first song that I wrote lyrics for, and I really wanted to express the feeling when you’re in love and hoping the other person feels the same way.
Jeongyeon
The best thing is being able to perform in front of people and to express my feelings, whatever they may be at the time. Just to be able to make the world a happier place to be.
Tanya Tucker
I just think that I’m a person who’s trying to find the truth and express it as I, you know, get the opportunity.
Jon Voight
One of the challenges is creating characters. I am trying to compose my sentences to express epic events happening to ordinary people.
Andrea Hirata
On the stage, the characters express themselves more through words than images. So the arguments of the characters and the tension between characters – words have to be used to express that, and I love that about theater.
Alan Alda
I just think people should be able to express themselves.
Vince Carter
With photography a new language has been created. Now for the first time it is possible to express reality by reality. We can look at an impression as long as we wish, we can delve into it and, so to speak, renew past experiences at will.
Ernst Haas
For me, Africa is a land of light and contrast. Black and white is the best way to express the solitary emotion and vitality of wildlife.
Laurent Baheux
I’ve really become super active in rescuing animals, and it has made my life feel so much better. I can’t even express to you how happy it has made me.
Carrie Ann Inaba
I love making videos on my couch. You can put those on the Internet fast. I can express myself.
Sarah Silverman
Creating characters is just another way to express a type and put that type to use.
Lily Tomlin
I’m interested in locating the holy grail of the minimum means to express the most complex ideas.
Ben Nicholson
When you’re young you don’t know anything, but you have lot of energy to express yourself. So you make a lot of mistakes and you stumble, but you also get a lot of truth from within.
Gilbert Hernandez
It gets crazy in my mind sometimes but the reason why I like to express so much positivity on my Twitter is because I think we all are battling evil thoughts. I think it’s important to not ignore them but to try to understand where they are coming from and get through them instead of suppressing them.
Jhene Aiko
Americans are a lot more open, of course. There’s something more declamatory in the way you express emotions. It’s a stereotype but it’s true. British people can appear repressed in expressing emotions. Not very good at self-evaluating, or affirming situations, touching, anything like that.
Emily Blunt
New needs need new techniques. And the modern artists have found new ways and new means of making their statements… the modern painter cannot express this age, the airplane, the atom bomb, the radio, in the old forms of the Renaissance or of any other past culture.
Jackson Pollock
In order for the artist to have a world to express he must first be situated in this world, oppressed or oppressing, resigned or rebellious, a man among men.
Charles Baudelaire
I want to express my deepest apology to the athletes, the people of Salt Lake City in Utah and the millions of citizens worldwide who love and respect the games.
Juan Antonio Samaranch
The business of the poet is not to find new emotions, but to use the ordinary ones and, in working them up into poetry, to express feelings which are not in actual emotions at all.
T. S. Eliot
You have to open your mind. I like the ability to express myself in a deep way. It’s the closest music to our humanity – it’s like a folk music that rises up out of a culture.
Sonny Terry
I want to encourage people to be themselves and express themselves however they want.
Melanie Martinez
Women may think men have it all, but only because we’ve been socialized to express the emotions that are tied to this reality differently, which is to say, men are not to express the emotions that are tied to it.
LZ Granderson
I am so enriched because so much has happened in my life. The way I can express myself is because of the life I have led. It’s only when you experience life can you emote it.
Bipasha Basu
That I have the right to express myself freely at all times in all circumstances entails the idea that free speech is a ‘basic human right’ possessed by each individual, and, as such, trumps the interests of the society or group, including my neighbour.
Tom Stoppard
I have a tendency to really stuff things. I don’t really express, you know? Like, express certain feelings and stuff.
Jack Osbourne
Unfortunately, our history has abundant examples of patriotism being used to hurt those who express views in disagreement with that of the majority.
Vic Snyder
Life is very, very short, and you can choose to live it how you want. You can choose to dumb yourself down and not express yourself just so you can fit in, just so people won’t dislike you.
Gerard Way
We want to open digg up to just about anyone and everyone that wants to express their interest in any type of news story or Web content.
Kevin Rose
The art of dancing stands at the source of all the arts that express themselves first in the human person. The art of building, or architecture, is the beginning of all the arts that lie outside the person; and in the end they unite.
Havelock Ellis
Web 2.0 ideas have a chirpy, cheerful rhetoric to them, but I think they consistently express a profound pessimism about humans, human nature and the human future.
Jaron Lanier
Music is an expression of individuality; it’s how you see the world. All art is, for that matter. You take how you experience the world, interpret it, and send it out there – express it – whether it’s sculpture, dance or singing.
David Sanborn
I’m a passionate individual, and sometimes when I have strong feelings about a subject, I feel the need to express myself.
Megan Fox
As we continue to fight the war on terror, we express our gratitude to our troops whose valor over the last three years provided freedom to the Iraqis, while protecting our liberty here at home.
Tim Murphy
Once you’re comfortable with the way that you’re dressing, you express yourself a lot more, and you’re just able to have a lot more fun.
Khalid
Flash content is the most prolific content on the web today; it is the way people express themselves on the Internet.
Gary Kovacs
It’s a dream come true, and with this music, with this Rossini, it’s unbelievable how to express the joy and express the joy of the situation and the joy to play this music, to sing this music, it’s really fantastic.
Cecilia Bartoli
I was afraid to express myself for a while.
Adam Lambert
I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat.
Rebecca West
Freedom of speech is, to all Americans, as oxygen is to the human condition. It is a right that has been irreversibly programmed into our hard drive. We are free to speak our minds. An artist’s right to express him or herself as best suits their art, is the artist’s prerogative and it is guaranteed.
John C. McGinley
When I got into music, I wanted to learn guitar just enough to be able to write songs. I wanted to be able to express myself.
Chris Daughtry
I think the biggest reason I was able to express myself and not be intimidated was by not having a mother. For example, mothers teach you manners. And I absolutely did not learn any of those rules and regulations.
Madonna Ciccone
Words can’t express how humbled I am in being given the privilege to portray Gunnery Sergeant Basilone!
Jon Seda
Let us not depreciate Earth. There is no atom in it but is alive and astir in the all-penetrating splendor of God. From the infinitesimal to the infinite, everything is striving to express the thought of His Presence with which it overflows.
Lucy Larcom
As an actor, you express certain things because they need to be expressed, and then you don’t really feel a need to do it again. I want to feel something else, you know?
Chiwetel Ejiofor
I think, first of all, you need to love what you’re doing, and then this helps in the comedian for its part in everything-but the moment you enjoy what you’re doing, you try to express yourself, to find your way, and every time is different, of course.
Cecilia Bartoli
When I look at the majority of my own songs they really came from my own sense of personal confusion or need to express some pain or beauty – they were coming from a universal and personal place.
Annie Lennox
I am much obliged by the favourable sentiments you express towards me, and shall be happy if I can be of service in carrying into execution your plans.
George Stephenson
The makeup is simply an extension of the personality and colors, clothing, makeup all express something.
Gene Simmons
I think it’s really cool to embrace the pain of something that may have hurt you and be able to express it through music.
Ciara
As artists, we thrive when we can express our comfort and our discomfort. If a certain scene is really challenging for us, if we’re in an environment where we feel safe, we’re able to do our work.
Aja Naomi King
There’s a great feeling of powerlessness in America. When I express ideas to people, they say, ‘That’s terrific, but do you think it really counts?’
Mort Sahl
As a citizen, you need to know how to be a part of it, how to express yourself – and not just by voting.
Sandra Day O’Connor
One of the great things about being recognized is that you receive this feedback from people. It is easy to see how sincere people are. It’s nothing fake or jive. They’re giving sincere appreciation. And it’s not that easy to express.
John Astin
I cannot adequately express the horror I feel for a man who can be so base as to veil his hypocrisy under the cloak of religion, and state the base falsehood he has done.
James K. Polk
Everyone, mostly in his or her school or college days, falls for someone unachievable, whom they can’t express their feelings to. It happened with me as well.
Uday Chopra
One time, on Marine One, the president asked me my opinion. I had a flashback to being at the kitchen table with my dad. That dominant male figure set me up for being confident to express myself with precision and persuasion.
Dana Perino
I’m really an animal guy. I express myself in different ways as an animal.
Justin Bieber
To be a poet is as serious, long-term and natural as the effort to be the best human you can be. To express something well is not a question of having a top-class education and understanding poetic forms: rather, it’s a question of paying attention.
Alice Oswald
I’m not passive aggressive. If something bothers me, I think about it, then I act on it. I express it.
Anton Yelchin
It’s almost better most times to not talk in a scene. I think you can actually express a lot more without words.
Neve Campbell
Anyways, trying to express yourself to the press is often like arguing with a hysterical person.
Ezra Koenig
I just think the mood of the country is now that people don’t necessarily want an elected official to tell them how they ought to cast their vote. Matter of fact, it’s the opposite, and they want to express themselves, and they have a right to, and I’ll respect their choice.
John Cornyn
Arts education is a big part of building a 21st century creative mind, and I think that we have let way too many kids lose their way by not drawing in their young minds with music, dance, painting and the other various ways we can express those things we do not have words for.
Heather Watts
There was probably something as a child I wanted to express, something unsaid that I needed to share.
Juliette Binoche
It is Leistikow’s lasting achievement – and will always remain so – that he found a style that can express the melancholy charm of the surroundings of Berlin. We see the Grunewald lakes and those on the upper Spree through his eyes; he has taught us to see their beauty.
Max Liebermann
We have a lot of freedom to express ourselves. When you see us playing on the field, I guess you can make that out. This batting unit, especially, is fearless. We want to go out there and achieve the best possible result.
Rohit Sharma
I want to take this opportunity to express, one more time, my deep sadness to those countrymen who feel, rightly, that they were victims of my government.
Jean-Claude Duvalier
I always felt like I needed to act. Not that I wanted to act, but I needed to. And I still feel that same way. There’s an expression that I get to have in acting that I can’t consciously express in my life. It has always defined me and it always will.
Dylan McDermott
I have to express sympathy from the bottom of my heart to those people who were taken as wartime comfort women. As a human being, I would like to express my sympathies, and also as prime minister of Japan I need to apologize to them.
Shinzo Abe
I understand why people went nuts for ‘The Artist.’ We use words so much, it’s nice to be able to explore a different way of communication, to be able to express silently what someone – or something – is thinking or feeling.
Andy Serkis
I’ve found stability. I think I’ve become stronger and more relaxed. I’m more curious and interested in work, and there are more things I want to express.
Hyun Bin
You’ve got to be who you are. You’ve got to be honest with people. If your views change on something, you’ve got to be willing to express it.
Rudy Giuliani
I like acting with no lines because all of a sudden you’re able to express things without always worrying about the text. It’s great to have a great text, but there’s a lot of stuff you can’t say in words, and I think there’s something really nice about good physical moments.
Zooey Deschanel
When a performance isn’t working, it’s usually because the actor is trying to do something and they’re not able to express their idea very well. It’s a muddled expression.
Casey Affleck
What do you say when someone has truly inspired you? How do you express to an artist how deeply their work has affected you?
Laura Dern
Any ‘artist’ makes a living by expressing what others can’t – because they’re unaware of their feelings, they’re too afraid to express those feelings, or they lack the skills to communicate and be understood.
Chuck Palahniuk
I want to express the utmost intensity of the color, bring out the quality, make it expressive.
Adolph Gottlieb
You must be willing to risk everything to really express it all.
John Cassavetes
I’m not here to change the music world, but I’m definitely here to show what I can do and express myself through my music.
Lee DeWyze
I was an adopted child of my grandparents, and I don’t know how I can ever express my gratitude for that, because my parents would have been a mess, you know.
James Earl Jones
Normally I begin writing a song with just with aim to express something, and sometimes I don’t know what I want to express until a sentence comes to my head that will sum up everything about how I’m feeling at the time.
Lianne La Havas
I just think that it’s strong and it’s important that we recognize what the Christmas season is about; it’s about the birth of our Savior, and there’s a lot of pressure today to be politically correct, but people are realizing, too, that you have to be open to express your faith what you want believe.
Joel Osteen
President Obama and members of his administration constantly express rage and anger over events totally within their control. It’s an odd and unsettling fact of American life that so many Americans seem to think that such expressions of frustration should substitute for actual competence.
Ben Shapiro
People often express surprise that I’m not a psychopath. But it’s not about what I want to do to other people, it’s that I’m scared of what other people might do to me.
Neil Cross
The best times I had on film sets were the times the director let me express myself, but those were rare.
Mara Wilson
My host at Richmond, yesterday morning, could not sufficiently express his surprise that I intended to venture to walk as far as Oxford, and still farther. He however was so kind as to send his son, a clever little boy, to show me the road leading to Windsor.
Karl Philipp Moritz
Censure is a limp noodle across the wrist of the president. I think the way we vote on the articles will express the way we feel stronger than any censure vote.
Larry Craig
I want everyone to express themselves in a unique way.
Miguel
I knew I wanted to write on religious themes when I was a GI in World War II. I saw and experienced so much violence that I thought I could express my outrage best with music.
Dave Brubeck
Ideally, people find mates with whom they can express both their masculine and feminine sides.
Scott Bakula
It always struck me that Africa was, in a strange way, a futuristic place and had elements and vibes and spirits that were going to inform the future. Africa Express is an attempt to engage that power outside Africa, and for everyone to benefit from it.
Damon Albarn
I was only the servant of my country and had I, at any moment, failed to express her unflinching resolve to fight and conquer, I should at once have been rightly cast aside.
Winston Churchill
You can say a lot more with a poem than you can with a song, but with a song you can really be more powerful with it. You can express it a lot more powerfully.
Serj Tankian
I was very much a late bloomer. That’s not to say that girls didn’t express interest in me from time to time, but I just, I did not know how to respond to that.
Mike Birbiglia
I still take photographs for my own use, personal studies. I do not feel that I can fully express my views through the medium and this is why I have moved towards painting.
John Dyer
The higher Greek poetry did not make up fictitious plots; its business was to express the heroic saga, the myths.
Gilbert Murray
I have become a marketing tool and I feel very uncomfortable with that. There’s no space for me to express myself.
Janet McTeer
I think the leaders inevitably express the people they are leading.
Leonard Baskin
Perhaps it is the language that chooses the writers it needs, making use of them so that each might express a tiny part of what it is.
Jose Saramago
To me, acting is the most logical way for people’s neuroses to manifest themselves, in this great need we all have to express ourselves.
James Dean
Even if it’s just the smallest thing, like what label I go by, I think to find the truth and express it with full confidence.
Eugene Lee Yang
These people are artists. These people are musicians. They’re taking it out and trying to express it that way.
Marilyn Manson
Democracy cannot succeed unless those who express their choice are prepared to choose wisely. The real safeguard of democracy, therefore, is education.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
Using the device of an imaginary world allows me in some strange way to go to the central issues – it’s one of many ways to express feelings about real people, about real human relationships.
Lloyd Alexander
I had a small part in ‘Pineapple Express.’
Bill Hader
I’m trying to use the language of today to express a general existential crisis that I think the world and I are going through.
Sean Lennon
We have to express ourselves in the most true and authentic way.
Eugene Lee Yang
Cannes or Oscars is not only to bring happiness and recognition – they protect people like me. The world knows who you are. You can work. You can express. You can help other people. It’s not only the star system. It’s a symbol of freedom.
Rithy Panh
When you’re choosing furniture for your home that’s supposed to express who you are, what you are also saying is you want other people to infer what you want them to infer. What if they see something different? Wouldn’t it be really depressing if you’re trying to be bohemian and instead they see you as Rush Limbaugh?
Sheena Iyengar
I just wanted to be an artist. I didn’t care how or what; I just wanted to express my artistic integrity, and I wanted the world to have a vision of what I was seeing in my mind.
Rita Ora
I wanted to become an engineer, or get a masters in business. But I had the opportunity to do films when I was about 25 and it was a great way to express myself.
Dolph Lundgren
Singing is just another outlet to express what I feel and to show everyone who I really am. I really don’t talk about my personal life that much in interviews because that’s my life, but with music, the way I write explains who I am.
Raven-Symone
I’ve always loved music, very simply, as a vehicle to express myself and that hasn’t changed.
David Coverdale
I think politicians should express their faith. I have never adhered to the Blair view that we don’t do God, indeed I’m not sure that Blair does.
Dominic Grieve
Doing fashion drawings was the only way I had to express myself when I was a teenager.
Jean Paul Gaultier
I’m sure there was some part of his soul was intrinsically happy, but he probably had to go through some permutations to really get that to blossom. I’m sure Dad had his challenges, but I think that joy was there from the beginning and he had to find a way to make his life support that and express that.
Jennifer Grant
Maybe clothes are a form of creative expression for me. An outlet. Because I don’t get to express myself creatively through my official duties.
Queen Rania of Jordan
Just because people can express themselves through their art doesn’t mean they are great communicators in person.
Christie Brinkley
Men of genius sometimes accomplish most when they work the least, for they are thinking out inventions and forming in their minds the perfect idea that they subsequently express with their hands.
Giorgio Vasari
Well, we were originally called Huey Lewis and the American Express. But on the eve of the release of our first record, our record label, Chrysalis Records was afraid that we’d be sued by American Express.
Huey Lewis
Religion is never going to go away, and anyone who thinks it will doesn’t understand what religion is. It is a language to describe the experience of human nature, so for as long as people struggle to describe what it means to be alive, it will be a ready-made language to express those feelings.
Reza Aslan
As always, I wrote songs. Some people cook or play sports. This is what I love to do. Sometimes I can’t express myself that well in talk, so I write songs.
Yael Naim
The dedication of the United States Air Force, Special Forces, and others involved in the mission to tracking down terrorists can not be matched. We express our gratitude to these men and women who defend the freedom America represents.
Tim Murphy
We needed something to express our joy, our beauty, our power. And the rainbow did that.
Gilbert Baker
The Iranian regime doesn’t express the wishes and values of the Iranian people.
Moshe Katsav
All artists are now free to express their own personality.
Maurice Denis
Sometimes when I see a performance that really takes me, I struggle. How can I express this to this person, I want this person to know how I felt. I want to get this across, and it’s not very easy.
John Astin
The best part of beauty is that which no picture can express.
Francis Bacon
While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self, I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted.
Psy
The difference between a top-flight creative man and the hack is his ability to express powerful meanings indirectly.
Vance Packard
The tongue should express what is in the heart.
Dayananda Saraswati
If a group of people feels that it has been humiliated and that its honour has been trampled underfoot, it will want to express its identity and this expression of an identity will take different shapes and forms.
Abdolkarim Soroush
Prayer becomes more meaningful as we counsel with the Lord in all of our doings, as we express heartfelt gratitude, and as we pray for others.
David A. Bednar
Freedom of religion is a principle that is central to our Nation’s Declaration of Independence. Congress has taken this positive step to protect our freedom to express allegiance to America’s flag and the ideals it represents.
Ron Lewis
I cannot persuade myself that a beneficent and omnipotent God would have designedly created parasitic wasps with the express intention of their feeding within the living bodies of Caterpillars.
Charles Darwin
Yes, I’m reckless and sometime express no concern for my own well being, and I express a misanthropic view of the world, but to have an opinion, you can’t be a nihilist.
Marilyn Manson
The reason most people don’t express their individuality and actually deny it, is not fear of what prime ministers think of us or the head of the federal reserve, It’s what their families and their friends down at the bar are going to think of them.
David Icke
I am so used to being able to express myself from being an actor. So when people don’t understand me, I’m just completely lost.
Liev Schreiber
I have a lot of variety within me, and the dream role, I think, is actually a compilation of parts that express different aspects of my persona and personal interests.
Ashley Judd
I do some concerts. At the moment, I’m being helped a lot by a gig I play in London, which is Pizza Express.
Mose Allison
The Gold Rush and the Pony Express made Sacramento a substantial place in terms of enterprise.
Wayne Thiebaud
Make it a habit to tell people thank you. To express your appreciation, sincerely and without the expectation of anything in return. Truly appreciate those around you, and you’ll soon find many others around you. Truly appreciate life, and you’ll find that you have more of it.
Ralph Marston
Folk songs express the dreams and prayers and hopes of the working people.
Hank Williams
Religion has the right to express its opinion in the service of the people, but God in creation has set us free: it is not possible to interfere spiritually in the life of a person.
Pope Francis
The mask can be a limitation, but you just deal with it. You do get superhuman strength and pumpkin bombs and all this other stuff to express yourself with.’
Willem Dafoe
Those people who want to express their religious beliefs on public property should enjoy the same rights that we provide to those protesting the war in Iraq.
Ernest Istook
I think if I were to express my wish, it would be that we are more regionally self-reliant. And I don’t mean people being survivalists, I mean regionally self-reliant. So that you have these individual cells. The idea of having different solutions in different areas, so that we have a very robust, durable civilization.
Daniel Suarez
There are ways of swearing that express all of your love and emotions.
Brett Goldstein
I play with language a great deal in my poems, and I enjoy that. I try to condense language, that is, I try to express complicated but I hope real emotions as simply as possible. But that doesn’t mean the poems are simple, just that they are as truthful as I can make them.
Anne Stevenson
I just try really hard to be me, and sometimes that means I’m unfiltered. I try to give people myself because I think making a great product is being in touch with how you feel about things and being able to express things. I really hope I can stay in touch with how I feel about things and I’m able to express that.
Evan Spiegel
I am saying that in Wales here we have a very clear election commitment and I hope, and I will express this view, I hope that every individual member of the Labour Party, will understand that and will strive to achieve unity so that we can deliver the yes vote in the Autumn.
Ron Davies
Music expresses – you express yourself with music.
Rita Ora
As an actor and a writer, the anxiety about doing TV is that you start to feel like you get married to one tone or one kind of idea and you feel like you want to be able to express a lot of different things.
Mike White
I like listening to people talk about things that they love. They get to express things they don’t normally get to express.
Chris Hardwick
I wanted to express myself more fully through writing and directing. It just feels like a package deal. Anytime you create anything, you try to exert mastery over your world.
Martin Donovan
If atheism is to be used to express the state of mind in which God is identified with the unknowable, and theology is pronounced to be a collection of meaningless words about unintelligible chimeras, then I have no doubt, and I think few people doubt.
Leslie Stephen
I don’t know why femininity should be associated with weakness. Women should be free to express who they are without thinking, ‘I need to act like a man, or I need to tone it down to be successful.’ That’s a very good way to keep women down.
Zooey Deschanel
There are essentially two main reasons to hold a phone up at a show. First, to capture a memory for yourself, a reminder of the moment you’re enjoying. And second, to share that moment with someone – to express your emotions socially. Both seem perfectly legitimate to me.
John Battelle
I’m free from holding personal anger because I can express what I want through my music.
Yoko Ono
My morning rituals are typical. I wake up yearning for a few extra moments of rest. I express gratitude to a higher power for the breath in my body and the blessings in my life. I shower. I dress. I eat breakfast. I exchange laughter and words with my beloveds, embracing each other as we say our daily goodbyes.
Patrisse Cullors
Those old Appalachian singers use a falsetto sometimes. They can change their voices to sound high or low or really scratchy. When you’re singing, usually you’re trying to express some kind of pain or joy. I think that voice allows me to do a lot more of that.
Justin Vernon
Believe in yourself, and find ways to express yourself, and find the discipline to keep growing.
Michael Feinstein
I think it’s important for kids to express themselves with bad fashion. I struggle a little bit now because I have a daughter and I feel with fashion, like they’re sexualizing the kids so young. Little kids in high heels and that kind of thing is really difficult for me to wrap my head around.
Busy Philipps
How strangely do we diminish a thing as soon as we try to express it in words.
Maurice Maeterlinck
I very rarely think in words at all. A thought comes, and I may try to express it in words afterwards.
Albert Einstein
In school, I learned about artists and how they were free to express themselves. I was allergic to conformity, and the lifestyle attracted me. I wanted to express myself in a way that slammed people up against the wall.
Grace Slick
For as long as I can remember I have suffered from a deep feeling of anxiety which I have tried to express in my art.
Edvard Munch
Do not suppress it – that would hurt you inside. Do not express it – this would not only hurt you inside, it would cause ripples in your surroundings. What you do is transform it.
Peace Pilgrim
I’m a great candidate for why arts funding shouldn’t be cut, because I had no experience other than what was at school, I’m from a working-class town, there were no theaters, and the cinema closed when I was a kid. Anything that gave me a voice or a way to express myself I went running headlong toward.
Ben Daniels
I was being very bad because I didn’t know how to express myself. Music gave me an outlet to express myself and channel that anger.
Tory Lanez
The vampires have always been metaphors for me. They’ve always been vehicles through which I can express things I have felt very, very deeply.
Anne Rice
Art is about expressing the true nature of the human spirit in whatever way one wishes to express it. If it is honest, it is beautiful. If it is not honest, it is obvious.
Corin Nemec
I design things to help people to hopefully express their personality.
Vivienne Westwood
Perfect partners don’t exist. Perfect conditions exist for a limited time in which partnerships express themselves best.
Wayne Rooney
The crucial thing is to arouse the awareness that as a matter of human conscience we can never permit the people of any country to fall victim to nuclear weapons, and for each individual to express their refusal to continue living in the shadow of the threat they pose.
Daisaku Ikeda
When I do a movie, I have the script. I know how it begins and how it ends. I know what my character does and where he’s going. If I have ideas I want to express or changes I want to make, there’s one guy: the director. It’s different in television.
Holt McCallany
If you want to read and you want to draw, that helps you to express yourself.
Quentin Blake
We all know that being able to express deep emotion can literally save a person’s life, and suppressing emotion can kill you both spiritually and physically.
Lisa Kleypas
I do like to dress up and look nice, and I’m inspired by people who do the same – people who express themselves through how they dress.
Skylar Astin
All human beings are very creative – full of potential, full of energy… So, money kind of allows them to express it… And if you’re successful, you can take more money. You can expand your capacity, reach next level of capacity, and so on.
Muhammad Yunus
No stream rises higher than its source. What ever man might build could never express or reflect more than he was. He could record neither more nor less than he had learned of life when the buildings were built.
Frank Lloyd Wright
The concepts of Joss are pure, and express attitudes and technical ideals.
Cliff Shaw
Death is not the biggest fear we have; our biggest fear is taking the risk to be alive – the risk to be alive and express what we really are.
Don Miguel Ruiz
I hate this idea that there are some people who have a right to express their suffering and others who don’t, that there are those in this hierarchy of pain who own it more than you do.
Eric Fischl
I am grateful to have spent 25 years at the ‘International Herald Tribune’ – a newspaper where I had unstinting support in being able to express myself freely and honestly.
Suzy Menkes
The thing you see in survivors is that they express feelings – I won’t say some of the things they tell their doctors, when doctors tell them they’re going to die in six months. Boy, do they let the doctor know how they feel about that statement.
Bernie Siegel
Today’s society will ignore almost any form of public behavior except getting in the express line with two extra items.
Paul Sweeney
The thing that I think is the most important is taking moments to express your appreciation to your partner. A thank you or a quick kiss can go a long way toward affirming your relationship and commitment to each other. That’s not hard to do even when you’re juggling insane careers and three kids.
Michael Ian Black
You express different energies at different times in your life.
Marisa Tomei
I find that classical music helps put me in a place that is very calming and allows me to express emotion through my body. I played clarinet as a child, so I guess I have a bit of a musical ear.
Diane Kruger
Life is too sweet and too short to express our affection with just our thumbs. Touch is meant for more than a keyboard.
Kristin Armstrong
I was raised in a family where none of us ever raised a voice, so there was no room to express feelings of rage or even unabashed joy – a little bashed joy, here or there, or being mildly disgruntled.
Anne Lamott
As long as the songs are strong, I think you can express yourself in any style and have it be soulful and have it be your own voice.
Ben Harper
Fundamentally, I do agree, certainly, people must be allowed to express their own opinions freely. Freedom is part of the essential rights of all nations.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
If you decide to move to another country and to live within its laws you don’t express your disregard for the essence of the culture. It’s a form of aggression.
V. S. Naipaul
There are really two core principles at play here. There’s giving people a voice so that people can express their opinions. Then, there’s keeping the community safe, which I think is really important. We’re not gonna let people plan violence or attack each other or do bad things.
Mark Zuckerberg
As a working-class actor, leaving school with no qualifications, being a printer and then becoming an actor and then working with people who to a certain extent had had a leg up. I never had that advantage. It’s less an artistic need to express myself and more a need to prove myself.
Eddie Marsan
In Iran, people are free to express their views. Every day, some people criticize the policies of the government.
Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
I would say that my idea of style and my taste are the same as when I began: They express my deep appreciation of all that is simple and linear… I always want to keep up with the times but without altering the essential characteristics of my philosophy.
Giorgio Armani
My job is to express myself.
Taika Waititi
Language… has created the word ‘loneliness’ to express the pain of being alone. And it has created the word ‘solitude’ to express the glory of being alone.
Paul Tillich
Somehow when I express my voice, I feel that much more vulnerable. For instance, if I used the wrong word, or if I said something and somebody could take the word and misinterpret it.
Carrie Ann Inaba
A certain administration which I won’t call by name took the arts out of the schools, and that left the brothers out on the street with nothing, so they went to the turntables and started rhyming. Then they had a way to express themselves, and that’s the birth of hip-hop.
Isaac Hayes
It is difficult for a woman to define her feelings in language which is chiefly made by men to express theirs.
Thomas Hardy
My personal feelings are my personal feelings. I don’t want to express them with anyone except for a very few people. It doesn’t do any good. It really doesn’t.
Tom Brady
When people come to Twitter and they want to express something in the world, the technology fades away. It’s them writing a simple message and them knowing that people are going to see it.
Jack Dorsey
It was extremely difficult to suppress my emotions, because my character in’ A Girl at My Door’ goes through so many infuriating situations. It was a lonely process having to portray someone that acts tough but is deeply hurting inside and is unable to express that.
Bae Doona
When on the set of a film, you have to play natural for entire scenes in a very unnatural environment. You have to express emotions and interact with other actors and also use your voice.
Helena Christensen
The way I process things, they way I express myself, is in comics, just as poets process things that they are trying to understand.
Ellen Forney
It is from him, from Beolco Ruzzante, that I’ve learned to free myself from conventional literary writing and to express myself with words that you can chew, with unusual sounds, with various techniques of rhythm and breathing, even with the rambling nonsense-speech of the ‘grammelot.’
Dario Fo
I’ve never been one for keeping a journal, so my songs were my journals. They allowed me to express my feelings and let people know what was going on with me. I knew that somebody would relate.
Janet Jackson
I love songs but am inhibited to have my characters burst out to express themselves through songs. I use the route of using old songs at the right places.
Sriram Raghavan
I’m able to sometimes express things even more articulately on the piano than I am with singing.
Harry Connick, Jr.
I always thought that it was every performer’s dream. That’s the epitome of being an artist, being able to express song, dance and acting in a live theatre setting and really connecting with an audience on that level.
Deborah Cox
Finally I had a place where I could express my pain and I felt safe because I didn’t have to put my name on it. I think acting kept me alive back then.
Lindsay Wagner
As a child I was not allowed to express my feelings, so I had to go back through therapy and express the child’s pain.
John Bradshaw
Look at Nicola Walker in ‘Last Tango in Halifax.’ She has the most wonderful face. You just want to look at her. And if she’d gone off and had Botox and facelifts, I wouldn’t want to look at that face because it wouldn’t express anything.
Judy Parfitt
Sometimes it’s important to get out of that comfort zone and, I think, try new things, and sometimes you can express yourself better.
Gautam Gambhir
Endeavour to be faithful, and if there is any beauty in your thought, your style will be beautiful; if there is any real emotion to express, the expression will be moving.
George Henry Lewes
The floor exercise is a way to express your personality.
Simone Biles
I think being an actress is more how to cope with the fact that you can’t do anything else than to express a talent. It’s a way of being untalented for anything.
Isabelle Huppert
Individuals have the right to pick and choose which expressions to condemn, which to praise and which to say nothing about. Governments, however, must remain neutral as to the content of expression. And governments must protect the rights of all to express even the most despicable of views.
Alan Dershowitz
The Trans-Siberian Express is like a cruise across an oceanic landscape. I’ve done it three times.
Paul Theroux
Whether it’s freedom to express, freedom to live, freedom to earn, freedom to thrive, freedom to learn, whatever it is, I want to make sure that I’m a part of these spaces and opening doors.
Angela Rye
If you take a look at history, you will find that the understanding of what is good and evil has always existed before the individual religions. The religions were only invented by people afterwards, in order to express this idea.
Salman Rushdie
Polar Express is not an attempt to do animation. It is a technology-based film.
Leonard Maltin
Everybody’s entitled to think whatever they want and to express that, but my personal day-to-day experience does not come into contact with any of those people.
Amy Grant
If Congress does its job in this regard, the residents of Puerto Rico will be empowered to act in their own self-interest and express their future political status aspirations accordingly.
Dick Thornburgh
Man’s ultimate concern must be expressed symbolically, because symbolic language alone is able to express the ultimate.
Paul Tillich
My job is to just express something that I want to express. And if I’m ahead or behind the curve, that’s for others to decide.
John Cusack
This is the power of fashion: the capability of allowing people to express themselves.
Alessandro Michele
If we have anything kind to say, any tender sentiment to express, we feel a sense of shame.
Ugo Betti
My father was a restaurant man, laundry man in his lifetime. And I’ve often wondered how and why did I become an actor? Where did I get the so-called talent to express myself? And I look back, and I see that my mother was very animated. I can remember that she used to, what she called ‘bei zhu.’
James Hong
I picked up the guitar very late, in a very pagan way – I didn’t know how to play, but I knew I had to. I drew and I had a diary, but it wasn’t enough; I needed to express more. As soon as I learned two notes, I started to tell a story, which is why, I guess, my music resembles blues or folk.
Lou Doillon
We are hopeful that President Obama, in his State of the Union Address, will express a willingness to work with Republicans to enact all of these jobs bills.
Nan Hayworth
Web series are a way forward. It is a space where creative minds can express themselves without the fear of censor board.
Siddharth Shukla
Sometimes I’ll go for some Panda Express or a light margherita pizza.
Ninja
I’m voraciously looking to express myself in my work. I love my work.
Rebecca De Mornay
I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to express the views of black people who otherwise don’t have access to power and the media. I have to take advantage of that while I’m still bankable.
Spike Lee
I’ve never done anything so political before. I’ve spent years shouting my mouth off about serious issues over dinner tables but never really had the confidence to express my views in a song.
George Michael
Singing allowed me to express myself in ways that I wouldn’t be able to do otherwise.
Josh Turner
Everyone should be able to express themselves in the way that best suits them – life is too short to spend it unhappy.
Jinkx Monsoon
Yet, it ought to be obvious that good music generally occupies a higher plane that mere politics. Great writers can express moods through melody and capture experiences we share most powerfully – love, lust, longing; joy, rage, fear; triumph, yearning and confusion.
Tony Snow
I don’t know the law, the kind of law of quantity and quality, but I think the opportunity of people being able to express themselves and to have the means of production is a great thing. It’s also changing how we’re telling stories.
Keanu Reeves
A man like Wilde was not free to live out of the closet as a homosexual, and women in general were not able to be truly themselves; there was no place for a woman’s voice to be heard or for her to express her sexuality.
Marisa Tomei
Our American heritage is greater than any one of us. It can express itself in very homely truths; in the end it can lift up our eyes beyond the glow in the sunset skies.
Bruce Catton
