What’s the gun for? (Leta) I would lie and say it’s for bears or snakes, but mostly I use it for trespassers. (Aiden) Wow, Dexter, I’m impressed. Since we’re not in Miami and you haven’t a boat to hide the hacked-up bodies at sea, where are you keeping them? (Leta)

I’m not one of those girls who can think, ‘Right, I’ll put a scarf with that and a little brooch there and maybe a vintage jacket.’ I’m so impressed with girls who look terrific in a little thing they picked up at the local charity shop. I just look scruffy when I try to do vintage.
Sophie Winkleman
I am not impressed by the Ivy League establishments. Of course they graduate the best — it’s all they’ll take, leaving to others the problem of educating the country.

Peter De Vries

Bill Johnson
When people ask me, “Who was the toughest pitcher you ever faced?”, I have to say that there has never been a pitcher who over-impressed me. That’s not meant to be a bragging statement. It’s just that I get up for good pitchers.
Pete Rose
There were so many people after that first ‘Colbert Report’ interview that were impressed by the synergy we had during the interview. People everywhere we’d go would say, ‘You should be the bandleader; it would be great for jazz. It would be great for the music.’ But I was completely against it.

Ram Dass
I’m just always impressed with what Gwen pulls off. She’s amazing.
Tony Kanal
From what I’ve seen he keeps his right side forward, he throws his left hand, throws his left leg and likes to throw a few elbows, but to be honest with you, I’m not very impressed by Darren Till – I think Masvidal is a better fighter. I think he brings more to the table than Darren Till.
Stephen Thompson
Brands, musicians, and public figures were among the first to embrace video on ‘Instagram’, and we’ve been impressed with how brands have extended their reach with video ads.

Nnamdi Asomugha
I am still the same person doing the same science. Why are people so impressed when some academy in Sweden gives an award?

I was very impressed with that that women have come here to say that we’re going to fight you, Donald Trump.

Charlaine Harris
I cannot say that I am in the slightest degree impressed by your bigness, or your material resources, as such. Size is not grandeur, and territory does not make a nation. The great issue, about which hangs true sublimity, and the terror of overhanging fate, is what are you going to do with all these things?
Thomas Huxley
The YA category changes pretty fast. I’m so impressed by what these authors do.

Ralph Waldo Emerson
‘The Devil in the Dark’ impressed me because it presented the idea, unusual in science fiction then and now, that something weird, and even dangerous, need not be malevolent. That is a lesson that many of today’s politicians have yet to learn.

I speak a little Spanish but I am so impressed by people who can speak a lot of different languages.
Matthew Morrison
My family was going back to England to visit my mother’s grandmother, who was very ill. We went up to Liverpool and I met my great-aunt, who was just a force of nature.

What a pleasure it is to be in business with BASE. I’m impressed with the honesty, integrity and efficiency with which they operate. The next show I do and represent, I will be doing with them all over again.
Bernie Brillstein
I am passionate about higher education and am hugely impressed by Portsmouth’s mission to encourage students from every walk of life to excel.
Sandi Toksvig
I am very impressed by the thinking that went into The Clarity Box. David Regal is diabolical.
Lance Burton
I think a lot of women would be impressed by my shoe collection.
Matt Harvey
All we do as songwriters is rewrite the songs that have impressed us till we find our own voice. It’s part of learning the craft.
Steve Earle
I had a lot of respect for Jeremy Renner as an actor before I worked with him, because I was very impressed with what he did in ‘The Hurt Locker.’
Denis Villeneuve
However impressed we may be with NVC concepts, it is only through practice and application that our lives are transformed.
Marshall B. Rosenberg
There were years when Hitchcock was like a master to me, but now I think he’s so artificial. I can watch films and say how technically beautiful they are, but I’m not impressed by any technicality.
Abbas Kiarostami
God, that all-powerful Creator of nature and architect of the world, has impressed man with no character so proper to distinguish him from other animals, as by the faculty of speech.

B. J. Porter
People are just not impressed by me at home.
Viola Davis
I’ll not deny I am impressed by your mastery of six warrens, Quick Ben. In retrospect, you should have held back on at least half of what you command.” The man made to rise. “But, Bauchelain,” the wizard replied, “I did.
Steven Erikson
I’m trying to think of a witty comeback, when Boggs says brusquely, “Well, don’t expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear.” I decide to go ahead and like Boggs.
Suzanne Collins
Personally, I am always more impressed by simplicity, clarity; it is the mark of a writer who knows his subject well and is secure enough not to ‘lay it on’ in the telling. Aim for complexity of thought, not expression.
Noah Lukeman
After the many rumours that we had heard about Hitler and the published criticisms we had read about him, we were pleasantly impressed. His appearance was neither pretentious nor affected.
Hjalmar Schacht
Always remember those things that tend to strengthen and improve your understanding. You cannot learn without attention, neither retain those lessons that you have once learnt without frequently reflecting upon and reviewing them in your mind; by this means, things long past will remain impressed upon your memory.
Dorothea Dix
I’m impressed with how ‘Newsweek’s’ outstanding staff has continued to put out a lively, well-informed magazine after the departure of their tireless editor, Jon Meacham.
Tina Brown
I was starstruck by Madonna. She’s one of the few remaining superstars. I’m so impressed by her level of discipline towards her career. We did have a little chat, and she wasn’t remotely intimidating, just lovely and open.
Donna Air
I am very impressed by The Carrivick Sisters, one of the best young duos I’ve heard. The girls sing and play as one and their work is characterised by great musicality. They are not only very talented instrumentalists and singers but they write really good songs as well.
Ralph McTell
A crowd is always impressed by the sum of its own number.
Reinhard Bonnke
The print does not always have the same shape as the body that impressed it, and it doesn’t always derive from the pressure of a body. At times it reproduces the impression a body has left in our mind: it is the print of an idea.
Umberto Eco
Whatever man feels deeply or images clearly, is impressed upon the subconscious mind, and carried out in minutest detail.
Florence Scovel Shinn
The spectacle of the sky overwhelms me. Im overwhelmed when I see, in an immense sky, the crescent of the moon, or the sun. There, in my pictures, tiny forms in huge empty spaces. Empty spaces, empty horizons, empty plains – everything which is bare has always greatly impressed me.
Joan Miro
I thought Al Iaquinta did a great job at UFC 223, but Khabib is going to say he won the Super Bowl after he faced the third string? No way, dude. So many people hold him up on a high horse, but I see his flaws. I wasn’t impressed with anything he did.
Tony Ferguson
I think there are a lot of dudes out there that are runnin’ out of gas. Some of my favourites, even ones I look up to… I haven’t been fully impressed with their dynamics of makin’ a body of work that makes sense to me.
My first marriage was not happy. I married him because I was impressed that he knew which wines to order and how to leave his visiting card. Ridiculous reasons.
Jean Seberg
I’m soooooo telling.” Puck stood behind her. “You two disobeyed your parents! I’m both shocked and really impressed.
Michael Buckley
I love all sports! I’m always impressed by athletes. I also love watching the Olympic Games. In high school, I played co-ed soccer and basketball. I really enjoyed both of those sports, but I have to admit basketball wasn’t my calling.
Olga Fonda
The artists of the past who impressed me were the ones who really focused their work.
Brian Eno
What I’m saying is I think life is staggering and we’re just used to it. We all are like spoiled children no longer impressed with the gifts we’re given—it’s just another sunset, just another rainstorm moving in over the mountain, just another child being born, just another funeral.
Donald Miller
All we really want is for no one to have a boring life, to be impressive, so we can be impressed. ~ on the friends we choose.
Dave Eggers
This celebration of The Bible will inspire people around the world to rediscover a beloved text in new ways. This is a passion project nurtured with love and care by Mark Burnett, Roma Downey and the entire creative team. I was thoroughly impressed by the deep faith expressed throughout this epic series.
Craig Detweiler
I think a lot of newspapers have lost touch with that sense of community, which so impressed me as a teenager when I had to knock on people’s doors.
Harold Evans
I was incredibly impressed with HOTorNOT, because it was the first time that someone had designed a website where anyone could upload content that everyone else could view. That was a new concept because up until that point, it was always the people who owned the website who would provide the content.
Jawed Karim
I was really impressed with the dining scenes and how amazing the culinary scene is in Nashville.
Maneet Chauhan
I am really impressed by lawyers who write books and tell us that they never lost a case. Most lawyers who have never lost a case have not had enough hard cases. But there are very difficult cases out there.
Floyd Abrams
I think I came across Cecil Taylor a bit later, in 65 or 66. That really impressed me – Cecil Taylor is an amazing character… Both his music and the way he approaches the instrument are astonishing.
Luc Ferrari
the wrongs of society can be more deeply impressed on a large class of readers in the form of fiction than by essays, sermons, or the facts of science.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
I’m never impressed with myself!
Kate DiCamillo
Even some of the most jaded D.C. types are still impressed when the leader of the free world enters the room.
Joel C. Rosenberg
When I tell people I’m a model, studying for my engineering, they are impressed.
Shefali Zariwala
I was especially impressed with Pauley Pavilion [at UCLA campus ]. The floors hadn’t been laid down yet, when they gave me the tour, each new room got my heart thumping. They even had a surgical operating room in case an athlete was severely injured.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
I am always impressed by interviewers who can do the whole thing without notes. I can’t. I need reminders on my knee. Dates, first names, quotes in bold text.
Emily Maitlis
I’m so impressed with the quality of the ‘Evening News.’
Steve Capus
I’m not impressed by people’s degrees. Harvard doesn’t impress me, Yale doesn’t impress me, Columbia doesn’t impress me.
Sean Hannity
All men are in some degree impressed by the face of the world; some men even to delight. This love of beauty is taste. Others have the same love in such success that, not content with admiring, they seek to embody it in new forms. The creation of beauty is art.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The belief in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude to the different characters and capacities impressed with it.
James Madison
When I played with Michael Jordan on the Olympic team, there was a huge gap between his ability and the ability of the other great players on that team. But what impressed me was that he was always the first one on the floor and the last one to leave.
Steve Alford
I was impressed that when it came to making ‘Rebellion,’ they sought out Aku Louhimies, a Finnish director who’s part of that new wave of Scandinavian realist drama.
Brian Gleeson
My dad is now an incredibly important ally of mine. I’m so impressed with him. He’s a hero to me because he put love and his family first.
Wilson Cruz
In fact, anybody else who hears this [speech of Donald Trump in Philadelphia] is probably gonna be dutifully impressed with Trump’s comportment, his presentation, his knowledge of this, and his temperament here. It’s all a great package and looks good.
Rush Limbaugh
…And while everybody was tremendously impressed with the low cost of the conflict, for the 146 Americans who were killed in action and for their families, it wasn’t a cheap war. And the question in my mind is how many additional American casualties is Saddam worth? And the answer is not very damned many.
Dick Cheney
I was always impressed by Betty Ford and what she went through and how full of integrity she was, and how brave. I think Mrs. Reagan was a role model of my mother’s generation, intelligent, very supportive of her husband. I am very different from my mom, but I admired her devotion.
Teresa Heinz
Oh, I’m impressed with Lorraine Hansberry. She was a genius at whose feet I could sit.
Ruby Dee
If you start to disrespect the character you’re playing, or play it too much for laughs, that can work for a sketch, it will sell some gags, but it’s all technique. It’s like watching a juggler – you can be impressed by it, but it’s not going to touch you in any way.
Steve Coogan
Something is wrong. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, crime, torture, corruption and the ice capades. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed. This is not what you expect to find on the resume of a supreme being. It’s what you expect from an office temp with a bad attitude.
George Carlin
I felt that one of the things God impressed on me was that I needed to start a nonprofit corporation, so that any money that came my way, whether it was an honorarium, a book sale or a gift, would go into a nonprofit ministry.
Anne Graham Lotz
I am excited by and impressed with Anthony Joshua, but Anthony has a long way to go. At first, I thought Anthony was similar to a Frank Bruno figure, but after a few fights, I realised he’s nothing like Frank Bruno. He’s very athletic.
Naseem Hamed
I am impressed with the belief that our naval force ought not to cost more in proportion than the British. In some things they may have the advantage, but we will be found to have equally great in others.
John C. Calhoun
I’ve never been impressed with bureaucratic tradition. I don’t like it when the parties come to me and say, ‘This is the way that it’s always done, judge.’ I never found anything in the oath I took or the statutes I was asked to look at that said, ‘Judge, stop thinking, because this is the way it was done before.’
Jed S. Rakoff
Every seventeen minutes in America, someone commits suicide. Mostly, I have been impressed by how little value our society puts on saving the lives of those who are in such despair as to want to end them. It is a societal illusion that suicide is rare. It is not.
Kay Redfield Jamison
When one side only of a story is heard and often repeated, the human mind becomes impressed with it insensibly.
George Washington
They can certainly expect to be very impressed with the technical aspects of the show, fooled and led up the garden path by the story and ultimately have a jolly good laugh!
Louise Jameson
I know that a good many champions have entertained the thought that the more they discourage youngsters, the longer they would reign. However, this theory never impressed me, and I always made it a point to give youths the benefit of my experience in bicycle racing.
Major Taylor
I love the feeling of letting fly, of pushing as far as I could go with my voice. The only way you can really graduate how you do it is by doing it regularly to people who don’t have to be super impressed. You can do it in the studio all day long but you don’t get the flashback that you get onstage.
Robert Plant
I’m surrounded by friends and family who are not that impressed by celebrity. They don’t have any problem telling me I’m acting like an idiot or I’m not that funny.
Paloma Faith
And at the same time, I had my very first concert at the age of 16. I hadn’t heard a symphony orchestra before, and I was so deeply impressed I said I have to be a conductor.
Kurt Masur
I have long been impressed with the focus on politics and that focus being… from young people.
Maggie Williams
All free peoples are deeply impressed by the courage and steadfastness of the Greek nation.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
One cannot help being impressed by the protesters. They have begun each day of the protest in Kiev in prayer and all activities are accomplished with a collective sense of respect, kindness, and an intention to conduct a peaceful revolution.
Bob Schaffer
We’re impressed by people who don’t know what can’t be done.
Steve Jurvetson
THE WOMAN WAS GOING TO KILL HIM, and not because she was stronger and more vicious than he was. Which, if he thought about it, she was. He’d never ripped a man’s throat out with his teeth, and he was damned impressed that Gwen had. She’d made the Lords of the Underworld look like marshmallows.
Gena Showalter
Strangely enough, I wasn’t into fast guitarists. I preferred Peter Green’s subtle touch. I saw him with John Mayall’s Bluesbreakers at the Marquee Club in London and was very impressed. He was the only guitarist I’ve ever seen to turn the volume control on his guitar down during a solo.
Alvin Lee
I am impressed when I go on the internet and see a lot of young people who’ve been influenced by the books, or I meet someone who tells me how it has changed their life. To me, that is much more real than sales figures.
Robert Greene
I was never so attracted to the glamorous world. That never impressed me.
Peter Lindbergh
When The Queen invited the Olympians to the Palace, I was first in line to speak to her. She said she watched the Games and how happy she was, how impressed she was with the boxing. She told me she’d watched my fight and enjoyed it. I didn’t realise the effect I’d had on the whole country.
Nicola Adams
I think if you look back through time, the history of income, wealth and taxation is full of surprise. So I am not terribly impressed by those who know in advance what will or will not happen.
Thomas Piketty
I was impressed by the Taj Mahal. A good bit of work, well looked after, worth paying money to see.
Karl Pilkington
Bill Door was impressed. Miss Flitworth could actually give the word “revenue”, which had two vowels and one diphthong, all the peremptoriness of the word “scum.
Terry Pratchett
Tottenham have impressed me. They haven’t thrown in the towel even though they have been under the gun.
Bobby Charlton
I couldn’t help but be impressed by the magnitude of the earthquake.
Dan Quayle
Pablo Casals is a great musician in all he does: a cellist without equal, and extraordinary conductor and composer with something to say. I have been profoundly impressed by all I have heard of his work, but he is a musician of this stature because he is also a great man.
Albert Schweitzer
Because the series is situated in the next century, and for the most part under water, there are many innovative technical gadgets. It’s a kind of StarTrek. When I first came there, I was really impressed myself.
Jonathan Brandis
I wholeheartedly believe that Andy Biggs is the right man to take up the legacy that Matt Salmon is leaving behind. I have worked with Andy for a number of years, and I have been impressed by his commitment to the Constitution and the principles of conservatism.
Trent Franks
I have been pretty privileged I have met most of some of the worlds top coaches and I can tell you, for the most part, you come away underwhelmed not really that impressed.
Angelos Postecoglou
People in New Zealand go out of their way to not be impressed by things.
Melanie Lynskey
I think the thing that’s impressed me the most has been the fantastic professionalism of the officials in the Senate.
Luther Strange
I wouldn’t put a big trust in what people in Silicon Valley say. They may be good at manipulating ones and zeroes and writing software, but beyond that, their contribution to human progress has been pretty dismal. I’m not impressed.
Vaclav Smil
Being willing is not enough. We must do.
Leonardo da Vinci
I am not overly impressed by the great names and reputations of those who might be trying to beat me to an invention. It’s their ‘ideas’ that appeal to me. I am quite correctly described as ‘more of a sponge than an inventor
Thomas A. Edison
Those too impressed with material things cannot hold their place n the world of culture; they are relegated to inferiority and ultimate death.
Alexander Crummell
They’re a different generation, those kids; kids that are under the age of twelve. They’re not that impressed by rock music, you know what I mean? They’re like, it’s cool and everything, but whatever. They’re just as impressed by YouTube.
Frank Black
I love ice, when I was in Antarctica many decades ago, I got to see a lot of ice. And the one thing that impressed me -because I love to talk about ice – is that it has a color.
Ira Flatow
People are impressed with me – because I can sleep for just 45 minutes – I’m used to it.
Miley Cyrus
I’m impressed with what the NWA has done, what Billy Corgan and Dave Lagana and those guys have done, establishing the NWA title to mean more and have more interest again.
Jim Cornette
I have dined with kings, I’ve been offered wings. And I’ve never been too impressed.
Bob Dylan
CGI has fully ruined car crashes. Because how can you be impressed with them now? When you watch them in the ’70s, it was real cars, real metal, real blasts. They’re really doing it and risking their lives.
Quentin Tarantino
Having parents who were hard working, blue collar, and staunchly independent, neither political party’s positioning really impressed me.
Kurt Bills
Men passionately desire to live after death, but they often pass away without noticing the fact that the memory of a really good person always lives. It is impressed upon the next generation, and is transmitted again to the children. Is that not an immortality worth striving for?
Peter Kropotkin
Clearly the path of mitzvot is a form of meditation. The intention to act impeccably requires complete dedication and unwavering attention. I was also impressed with LUzzato’s insistence that mitzvot practice is joyful.
Sylvia Boorstein
On that Sunday morning the first thing that impressed the people who approached the tomb was the unusual position of the one and a half to two ton stone that had been lodged in front of the doorway.
Josh McDowell
When Washington visited Portsmouth in 1789, he was not much impressed by the architecture of the little town that had stood by him so stoutly in the struggle for independence.
Thomas Bailey Aldrich
Samoa Joe is a good friend of mine, and I’m very impressed with his in-ring abilities.
Rob Van Dam
Lauren Bacall, James Garner, and Jack Lemmon – they’re all gone now, but I was so impressed by them.
John Heard
I never make suggestions. I really don’t. I know a lot of actors who get a part and then they dissect it and they want to change it and they want to add stuff. I’m always amazed and so impressed by actors who do that.
Naomie Harris
We hear a great deal about the rudeness of the rising generation. I am an oldster myself and might be expected to take the oldsters’ side, but in fact I have been far more impressed by the bad manners of parents to children than by those of children to parents.
C. S. Lewis
I was impressed by Hendrix. Not so much by his playing, as his attitude – he wasn’t a great player, but everything else about him was brilliant.
Ritchie Blackmore
God does not seem impressed by size or power or wealth. Faith is what he wants, and the heroes who emerge are heroes of faith, not strength or wealth.
Philip Yancey
UFC is UFC, and God bless them, they have the largest roster and some amazing fighters, but there’s amazing fighters everywhere. That’s why I am impressed with what Bellator has attempted to do with the tournament or with Aaron Pico and some of the younger talent.
Mauro Ranallo
I understand I’m supposed to be feminine and dainty, but I’m not. There are two sides to the coin. People are more impressed with things that I do because they almost treat you as if you’re handicapped if you’re a woman… people can be impressed that I can play a few chords on the guitar.
The objective of education should be impressed on the children’s minds. The academic education of today is shallow and useless because it has no value orientation.
Sai Baba
I don’t know how it is with other writers, but most of the time when I finish [reading] a story or novel, I may be pleased, I may even be impressed, but somewhere in the back of my mind I’m thinking, I can do that.
F. Paul Wilson
I was very impressed with the street food of Singapore. I was very impressed with the dishes that they did.
Jose Andres
You were part of a parish life. It was a great community to grow up in. I just was impressed by our parish priests. After a while, I began to think maybe I could do that.
Donald Wuerl
I travel a lot. If you look at my suitcase, everything is extremely well-packed and well-folded; people who travel with me are impressed at how organized I am. Some would refer to me as a maniac for this.
Joel Robuchon
I met soldiers coming back from war and I was impressed by their description of PTSD, all the symptoms: the outburst of violence, the impossibility to cope with reality anymore, all that stuff.
Alice Winocour
Im not impressed by anything the Miami Heat does.
Jason Terry
I am so impressed with people who can really make a big movie, a good movie. The amount of work that goes into it is incredible.
Stan Lee
Rajkumar was the winner of ‘Naalaya Iyakkunar Season 2,’ and I was impressed with his short film. He joined me as an assistant when I started the pre-production work for ‘Vada Chennai.’
Every time I meet Prime Minister Modi and listen to him and then see his actions, including GST, I see bold things that I don’t see in any other place. I am super impressed and optimistic.
Tim Cook
That was enterprising,” Will sounded nearly impressed. Nate smiled. Tess shot him a furious look. “Don’t look pleased with yourself. When Will says ‘enterprising’ he means ‘morally deficient.'” “No, I mean enterprising,” said Will. “When I mean morally deficient, I say, ‘Now, that’s something I would have done’.
Cassandra Clare
Men are naturally most impressed by diseases which have obvious manifestations, yet some of their worst enemies creep on them unobtrusively.
Rene Dubos
A lively and lasting sense of filial duty is more effectually impressed on the mind of a son or daughter by reading King Lear, than by all the dry volumes of ethics, and divinity that ever were written.
Thomas Jefferson
When I was about ten, I was very impressed by the way Tarzan could swing through the trees from vine to vine. No one ever told me, ‘Don’t try this at home.’
James Dobson
Jesus Christ would have been considered just another long-haired hippie freak if he hadn’t been crucified. The folks weren’t impressed with healing the sick, feeding the multitudes bread and fish or anything else, except maybe the walking on water. But when he got crucified, that gave him his big start.
Ted Turner
If you can’t see the sun you will be impressed with a street light. If you’ve never felt thunder and lightning you’ll be impressed with fireworks. And if you turn your back on the greatness and majesty of God you’ll fall in love with a world of shadows and short-lived pleasures.
John Piper
Impressed force is the action exerted on a body to change its state either of resting or of moving uniformly straight forward.
Isaac Newton
When I speak to young people around the country, I’m impressed with the confidence and self-assuredness with which they look to the future and the range of options they consider beyond traditional routes.
Esther McVey
When you become entitled to exercise the right of voting for public officers, let it be impressed on your mind that God commands you to choose for rulers just men who will rule in the fear of God. The preservation of a republican government depends on the faithful discharge of this duty.
Noah Webster
I was really impressed with and excited about being immersed in this world and this time period with ‘Fences,’ being able to walk the neighborhood, and it looks exactly like the 1950s.
Jovan Adepo
But if you tell folks you’re a college student, folks are so impressed. You can be a student in anything and not have to know anything. Just say toxicology or marine biokinesis, and the person you’re talking to will change the subject to himself. If this doesn’t work, mention the neural synapses of embryonic pigeons.
Chuck Palahniuk
Of course Jack Ma was the guy who impressed me.
Masayoshi Son
I always thought I wrote good bridges. I was a bit more impressed with the bridges I wrote than maybe the songs I wrote.
Rick Nielsen
Dortmund tried very early to sign me and always kept in close contact with me – this behaviour has really impressed me.
Ousmane Dembele
When it came time to make the audiobook, Audible did an ingenious thing: they asked both Wil Wheaton and Amber Benson to record entire versions of the book. As the author, I’m impressed with Audible’s commitment to my narrative — and I’m geeking out that both Wil and Amber are reading my book. This is fantastic.
John Scalzi
God is never impressed with what a man can do. He is more concerned with what a man is.
Aiden Wilson Tozer
I am impressed and distressed at how passive hierarchical organizations make people. There’s often a lot of overt activity, but it’s not going anywhere, it’s game-playing. It’s play-acting at work.
Judith M Bardwick
The older I get, the more impressed I am with women. I have yet to meet a woman who is not strong. They don’t exist.
Diane von Furstenberg
You know, nobody eats in England. Three or four pints of English beer a night fills you. I can’t say I’m very impressed with the food in America. it’s all sort of bland. Like turkey sandwiches.
Anne Dudley
I’m actually really impressed with everyone at Polydor.
Perhaps the most sophisticated and highly evolved system is that originated by Joseph Scogna. I was impressed by the profound insights into the relationship between my own bodily functions and the psychological and emotional issues that emerged.
Rudolph Ballentine
The popular idea that a child forgets easily is not an accurate one. Many people go right through life in the grip of an idea which has been impressed on them in very tender years.
Agatha Christie
When I read Deborah Brenner’s book ‘Women of the Vine’ about women wine makers, I was impressed that many of the women she had interviewed had come to wine making later in life as a second career.
Rebecca Pidgeon
Ted, damned if I’m not impressed with your candor!
Les Miles
Humans are animals and like all animals we leave tracks as we walk: signs of passage made in snow, sand, mud, grass, dew, earth or moss…. We easily forget that we are track-markers, through, because most of our journeys now occur on asphalt and concrete–and these are substances not easily impressed.
Robert Macfarlane
Historical costumes from the 18th and 19th centuries look so complicated, but when you see the patterns, it’s very systematic. I’ve always been impressed by how the patterns economize the fabric.
Olivier Theyskens
When I was Governor, Louis Kelso went out of his way to brief me. I was very impressed, but I was never able to get any of the economists in state government to give him the help his plan deserves.
Jerry Brown
Writers seem mesmerized by the state – the temporal entity. The word ‘perestroika’ is impressed somehow on our minds. But that is not the duty of a writer.
Joseph Brodsky
I think generationally, as human progress does its thing, we are constantly impressed by the upcoming generation.
Alyson Stoner
It is glorious to be a member. It is glorious to have any office or calling in the Church, no matter how relatively humble the title may sound. I am impressed constantly with the fact that, regardless of our calling, we are all encouraged, we are all dedicated, and we are all working in the service of the Master.
Henry D. Moyle
My products and magic are free, but on the commercial side of what I do, the big tech companies are impressed with somebody like me who can emotionalize a piece of technology.
Marco Tempest
People may not be impressed by our theological grasp, but they may be impressed by our expressions of practical godliness.
Alistair Begg
I am a great fan of Rituparno’s films and have always nurtured a wish of acting in his films. I was very impressed with his ‘Chokher Bali,’ ‘Bariwali,’ and ‘Raincoat.’
Manisha Koirala
Tottenham are a very big club, big in structure. I’m impressed with this, and I’m happy to come here.
Lucas Moura
It’s true I have a hard time with the notion of creating a character. And I feel it’s a limit. I’m always really impressed by actors who are able to construct a character, like Johnny Depp.
Louis Garrel
I was actually born and raised in Puerto Rico. I moved to the States when I was 19. I was very impressed early on by being around people who spoke my language and ate the same food and listened to the same music, dressed the same. But then you look around and, you know, you’re not in Puerto Rico.
Miguel Zenon
I remember the first reading of the script we had and everybody was sitting around the table. I was very impressed with the level of acting that was in the room, particularly with Jennifer who has so much responsibility.
Victor Garber
I am impressed with what happens when someone stays in the same place and you took the same picture over and over and it would be different, every single frame.
Annie Leibovitz
Having people be impressed with a house is not a compliment. You don’t want them to say, ‘What a place!’ You want them to sit down and enjoy it.
Robert Denning
We must no more ask whether the soul and body are one than ask whether the wax and the figure impressed on it are one.
My doctors were of one mind: unless something was immediately done, I had maybe six months to live. A quintuple bypass was suggested. Quintuple! I was impressed, though somewhat disturbed because I was in the middle of work on a new book.
Studs Terkel
The thing about real life is that important events don’t announce themselves… Usually something that is going to change your whole life is a memory before you can stop and be impressed about it.
Edith Schaeffer
Never be impressed with charisma. Look for character.
Rick Warren
When we started training with WWE, coaches were impressed and asked if we had had boxing training. I said no, it was all soccer. As a defender, I had to learn to stay on my feet, track backwards, and I feel all the movement I do in the ring was helped by my soccer background.
Nikki Bella
I was impressed by Hendrix. His attitude was brilliant. Even the way he walked was amazing.
Ritchie Blackmore
Director Jai Krishna is an optimist who has a never-say-die attitude. He has impressed me thoroughly with his faith in the industry. Not many are aware of the fact that this man had to wait for almost 30 years in this industry to direct ‘Vanmam,’ his first film.
Vijay Sethupathi
Health care does not worry me a great deal. I’ve been impressed by some wonderful old people.
Graham Chapman
I travelled around small-town India a lot for a job from 2010-2012, and I was impressed by the energy I encountered in these places.
Karan Mahajan
Among the scenes which are deeply impressed on my mind, none exceed in sublimity the primeval [tropical] forests, … temples filled with the varied productions of the God of Nature. No one can stand in these solitudes unmoved, and not feel that there is more in man than the mere breath of his body.
Charles Darwin
Tom is the most eccentric person I have ever worked with. We get on very well and I am most impressed with how he can hold an audience in the palm of his hand.
Louise Jameson
I immersed myself in The Periodic Table gladly and gratefully. There is nothing superfluous here, everything this book contains is essential. It is wonderful pure, and beautifully translated…I was deeply impressed.
Saul Bellow
I’m impressed with a 90 year old woman who’s still out and about.
Anthony Kiedis
I’ll not!
The gents are impressed
with the way that I’m dressed.
I wouldn’t change even one spot.
Michael R. Burch
America is very far away from Korea, so we were very impressed that people knew K-pop, let alone liked it!
In those days I was new to covers; merely felt pleased that a story of mine had been honored. I later met Rogers who did some of my early covers and I was impressed with him.
A. E. van Vogt
I’m not impressed by your performance.
Georges St-Pierre
I’m very impressed with ‘Drive.’
Nicolas Cage
You know, nobody eats in England. three or four pints of english beer a night fills you. i can’t say i’m very impressed with the food in America. it’s all sort of bland. like turkey sandwiches.
Anne Dudley
I certainly think there are things that impressed me as a child about the church. The smells and the sounds and the pagaentry of it remained with me. The aesthetic I really love. I think a lot of my sense of melody comes from singing those hymns and doing the renaissance music and stuff.
Jonathan Meiburg
I’m sure that Plotinus wasn’t that impressed by the Christians.
Peter Adamson
Usually when attorneys are assembling a jury, they’re just looking for sheep that are easily impressed.
Johnny Kelly
I didn’t start working on children’s books until I got a job at a book warehouse on the children’s floor. When I started reading some of the books, I was so impressed.
Kate DiCamillo
I haven’t really heard much that’s impressed me the way it was when I first heard Ray Charles or somebody like that. That was really an impression.
Van Morrison
I am glad that the life of pandas is so dull by human standards, for our efforts at conservation have little moral value if we preserve creatures only as human ornaments; I shall be impressed when we show solicitude for warty toads and slithering worms.
Stephen Jay Gould
Crowley had been extremely impressed with the warranties offered by the computer industry, and had in fact sent a bundle Below to the department that drew up the Immortal Soul agreements, with a yellow memo form attached just saying: “Learn, guys…”
Neil Gaiman
I think there is this thing where people are impressed – it gives you a leg up in the sense that people won’t treat you like a run-of-the-mill actress. They’ll assign “smart” to your word bank, your adjective bank.
Rashida Jones
My biggest fear, I think falling from a great height. If I want to keep myself awake at night I imagine I’m on the top of the North or South Tower in 9/11, wondering whether I’m going to be burnt to death or I’m going to jump. And I think I would burn to death. And yet I’m impressed by the fact that hundreds didn’t.
Ian Mcewan
I’ve been really impressed at some of the investments that I’ve seen in community college and technical schools that are training young people for these jobs in 3D printing and the like.
Hillary Clinton
Junior told me once that he was very impressed by Jimi Hendrix, by the way he was very wild, and yet he was very controlled. He knew where everything was going in a solo, and he (Junior), I think tries for the same effect, and I think he hits it virtually every time.
Mitch Mitchell
These cybercrime fighters are regarded as the superheroes. They’re highly intelligent and have this alien-like, advanced-type knowledge within themselves. It’s something that impressed me every day.
Chris Hemsworth
Behind me, Marc made a soft whistling sound, clearly impressed. “That’s not standard procedure,” he said, his tone entirely too reasonable as he leaned over the stray’s body to open the back passenger-side door. “Yeah, well, I’m not your standard enforcer.
Rachel Vincent
I really, really like Nicole Richie, and the only reason why I always bring her up is because I’m impressed with her style evolution. This is someone that came onto the scene that people didn’t necessarily view as a style icon, and she completely switched up the game. And I like how she takes risks with fashion.
Tia Mowry
Well, don’t expect us to be too impressed. We just saw Finnick Odair in his underwear.
Suzanne Collins
Clinton impressed Assad: a young man who appeared to want to be neutral in the Arab-Israeli dispute – an illusion of course, but that’s what Assad thought.
Robert Fisk
I love Coach K’s passion to coach his players and to coach the game. I examined and watched the interaction between him and his staff, along with the players, and was impressed how hard they played.
Jayson Tatum
Who despises all that is despicable is made to be impressed with all that is grand.
Johann Kaspar Lavater
I’ve met dedicated people from all sectors of society who are committed to giving children the tools they need for a better future. I’m always impressed by the passionate young leaders I meet. As the pace of change accelerates, so do the challenges we face. However, the chances to solve them increase too.
I was always impressed by the Road Warriors and Legion of Doom. They were just so large and bigger than life in every possible way.
Drew McIntyre
[Why] should not the Bible regain the place it once held as a school book? Its morals are pure, its examples captivating and noble. The reverence for the Sacred Book that is thus early impressed lasts long; and probably if not impressed in infancy, never takes firm hold of the mind.
Fisher Ames
I’ve been impressed with Rick Guzman and his commitment to the residents of Aurora since I first met him many years ago.
Dick Durbin
I love visual art. I painted for many years when I was younger. I have studied modern/contemporary Indian art a bit and am very impressed with the talent in India.
Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
You live in the present and you eliminate things that don’t matter. You don’t carry the burden of the past. I’m not impressed by the past very much. The past bores me, to tell you the truth; it really bores me. I don’t remember many movies and certainly not my own.
Paulette Goddard
In view of this and other things, I demand forgiveness for being so obviously impressed with my own parents.
Beryl Markham
My father was the king of the joke-tellers. I was so impressed as a child watching him, holding people in rapt attention.
Carol Leifer
I had never heard anyone play like Benny Goodman and had never seen anyone like him on the stage. I realize now that what impressed me and stayed with me in memory was – the sounds he made. He played so purely. The music seemed to come from him, not just the instrument he played with such mastery.
Marian Seldes
I’m not impressed by your money or what you have.
Monica Wright
Is this a topic whose time has truly come? The integration of science and religion? Or have I just written a clever book that temporarily impressed a few people and will otherwise go as quickly as it came?
Ken Wilber
Politics are not my concern…. They impressed me as a dog’s life without a dog’s decencies.
Rudyard Kipling
I have never been particularly impressed by the self centered musings of my fellow writers.
Gore Vidal
Very early on, I was writing stories, and I was amazed at Spielberg’s movies when I was young. Coming from the countryside, I was so impressed with the way he was able to tell stories and the way he was able to deal with le merveilleux – the wonders.
Denis Villeneuve
I’ve always done a lot of stunts in the past, and I sound like I’m tooting my own horn here, but I’ve always impressed the people I’ve worked with and they’ve let me do more and more.
Lucas Till
When I was a kid, I was a fan of comedy. I always loved Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, and Dave Letterman – not an actor, obviously, but I’m still impressed by his wit. I wanted to emulate them because they made me laugh.
Will Arnett
When I look back, I am so impressed again with the life-giving power of literature.
Maya Angelou
I’m very impressed and the next movie I do I’m definitely going to use a lot of drones in it, because they’re very light and flexible and fast, and there are things that you can do with them that you can’t possibly do with a helicopter for safety reasons.
Paul W. S. Anderson
The girl must early be impressed with the idea that she is to be “a hand, not a mouth”; a worker, and not a drone, in the great hive of human activity. Like the boy, she must be taught to look forward to a life of self-dependence, and early prepare herself for some trade or profession.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
I was very impressed with Hanson’s performance. I thought that little drummer was a kick-ass drummer, and uh, that they sang great, I mean I didn’t know either, y’know, that these little boys, y’know, I was very impressed. I think they’ll probably be around in 20 years writing good songs, and being a great band.
Stevie Nicks
I knew from a young age that I could sing and it was impressed upon me that if I got a classically trained education in voice, it would serve as a foundation for whatever I chose to do.
Shuler Hensley
And, I was really impressed with how beautiful our country was and how friendly the people were.
Duane G. Carey
In my home country, there was a little shop with old books, but it was really in the countryside. You couldn’t find English books. I found this very avant-garde American art book that had information about Georgia O’Keeffe. I was very much impressed by her.
Yayoi Kusama
I had the same manager as Frank Sinatra, so I got to meet him and he truly impressed me. He had this magical aura – the whole atmosphere in the room changed when he walked in.
Tony Blackburn
For all of us involved in preaching the gospel, performing music, publishing Christian materials, and all the rest, there is an uncomfortable message here: Jesus is not terribly impressed with religious commercialism
Jim Cymbala
I am after painting reality impressed on the mind so hard that it returns as a dream, but I am not after painting dreams as such, or fantasy.
George Tooker
I tend to discourage people from calling me ‘Sir Ian,’ because I don’t like being separated out from the rest of the population. Of course, it can be useful if you’re writing an official letter, like trying to get a visa or something passed through Parliament. They’re impressed by these things.
Ian Mckellen
We journalists… are also extremely impressed with scientists, and we will, frankly, print just about any wacky thing they tell us, especially if it involves outer space.
Dave Barry
I’m very impressed by St. Patrick’s. Another deity to me is definitely Saks Fifth Avenue. Someone told me that when they go to Vermont, they feel like they’re home. I’m that way at Saks.
Caroline Rhea
Helvetica was a real step from the 19th century typeface… We were impressed by that because it was more neutral, and neutralism was a word that we loved. It should be neutral. It shouldn’t have a meaning in itself. The meaning is in the content of the text and not in the typeface.
Wim Crouwel
