Maeve Binchy

My mother says I was two-and-a-half when I started playing. My father was a minister, and when he went to church in the morning, she would put on Fats Waller, Billie Holiday, Nat King Cole and Cole Porter records. I’d crawl up on the piano stool, sit on a phone book and play.

We’re living in a time when parenting is not at all mirroring the way I was parented. For me, I just followed my parents around on their errands; when they were busy on the phone, I was quiet.

Christopher Walken could literally read a phone book and fill a theater, and it would be interesting to watch. I’ve often wanted to produce a show and ask him if he’d do that. All week long, he could read the As on Tuesday, the Bs on Wednesday; we’d see how long it would last.

The way we’re attached to our phones these days, they buzz and twitch in our pockets, and we have to look and see if it was a text, a voicemail, or an e-mail. We’re almost like lab rats. I tried to eschew the whole cell phone theory until I had kids; then, I had to be reachable at all times.

Joshua Foer
Square is turning informal, cash transactions, like you would do with a taco truck, into card swipes.

Patrick Collison
I have an iPhone, and I can text, and I can use the phone, and I can even take pictures with it.
Carol Burnett
Solitude is part of my life, and I don’t mind that. I like it. I love it. I don’t allow loneliness to be part of my life, let’s put it that way. I really won’t allow it. If I feel lonely, I phone somebody or I go for a walk or a swim, get the endorphins going, because I hate feeling lonely.

Johnny Knoxville
The Nexus 7 is about the same size as a Moleskine notebook, and it just ‘feels’ like the right form factor for doing all those things you want to do on a smart phone, but can’t quite do in the right way. It’s not too big, and not too small – just right.
John Battelle
The night before, go over your schedule and see what you’re going to do and what the purpose of what you’re doing is. I advocate having a two-column schedule. On the left, put down all your appointments and phone calls. On the right, put down what the purpose is.

Dabney Coleman
I absolutely believe that, come November 2012, I’m going to be governor of New Jersey and not in any other office. But the fact of the matter is, if Gov.

Hooman Majd
I still find it absurdly difficult to concentrate on a novel if there’s a phone or computer to hand; I have taken to locking them outside the room like noisy pets.

Kevin Mitnick

David Mixner
It’s getting harder and harder to differentiate between schizophrenics and people talking on a cell phone. It still brings me up short to walk by somebody who appears to be talking to themselves.
Bob Newhart
I don’t have interns. I don’t have a manager. I don’t have assistants. I don’t have a secretary. I can’t figure out Outlook Express. I’m the worst person in the world answering e-mails, and my phone is probably the oldest, most battered phone you can find. So I just talk to people.
Bruce Dickinson
As an old reporter, we have a few secrets, and the first thing is we try the phone book.

Lowell Bergman
‘Moldova: Yes or No?’ That’s a great app, and we actually used the geo-locator on your phone, so if you are in Moldova, it will say ‘Yes, you’re in Moldova.’ I’m so excited. People need that. That’s the whole point. The whole reason you buy a $500 phone is to see if you are… in Moldova. Or not.
Jimmy Fallon
If you want to lose 40 pounds, you order salad instead of fries. If you want to be a better friend, you take the phone call instead of screening it.

Virginia Postrel
I got a phone call from Douglas Campbell and from Jerome Guthrie, who offered me a job out of the blue.
Jeffrey Jones

Gil Scott-Heron

Jermaine O’Neal
Recently, I have come to assume that any call to my landline is from a telemarketer or an automated call from Terminex, letting me know that our regularly scheduled pest-extermination service will occur on its regular schedule. So I usually ignore my home phone.
Susan Orlean
Saturday afternoon is the hardest thing. I can go out and watch games, but I’m constantly on my phone looking at results: what score is this, what score is that. You have no real involvement, but you’re obsessed with it.
Paul Scholes
I’ve been talking to certain wrestlers on the phone lately, and certain female wrestlers that were huge stars ten years ago, and the first thing I ask them is ‘do you still want to work?’ Do they want to talk, or do they want to wrestle or do something else in the business?
Hulk Hogan
If any sort of error is inexcusable, it’s an incorrect phone number. One of the cardinal rules of copy editing is that every phone number published must be checked.
Bill F. Walsh
If your work is done on the phone, then surely you can set up some kind of wireless system. If your work involves reading or writing reports, then this too could be done outside.
Tom Hodgkinson
My first celebrity crush was Jonathan Brandis. I even got to talk to him on the phone. I wrote a fan letter, and he answered. Talk about a surreal experience.
Jennifer Armentrout
I adopted a motto: Never say no. Jim Morrison never said no, Kurt Cobain never said no. You couldn’t have great things to write about if all you did was sit in your living room with your roommates talking about the phone bill.
Bert Kreischer
The telephone is a 100-year-old technology. It’s time for a change. Charging for phone calls is something you did last century.
Niklas Zennstrom
What did people do prior to cell phones? Read a book? If I’m stuck in a car, and I don’t have my phone, I’m like, ‘What am I doing?’ Car rides used to be one of my favorite things.
Chris Evans
I did not have a mobile phone in 1993. No one did, except the occasional banker or Hollywood star seeming smart, or the main character in ‘American Psycho.’ In 1993, every day was ‘let’s get lost.’ I could walk Greenwich Village for hours and not be found.
Elizabeth Wurtzel
I sketch literally all the time; constructing a collection is like building a family – you have to have a certain balance. I isolate myself – I need to be concentrated for this so I leave Paris, I leave to a place without a phone.
Christian Louboutin
When I tell people I don’t own a mobile phone and wouldn’t know how to text, they react as though I have just confessed that I can’t read.
Craig Brown
I don’t exclusively talk to people on social media; I don’t meet people through Tinder. I try to keep it face-to-face, and to be aware if my phone is sucking me away from the rest of the world.
Weyes Blood
It’s happened to far too many Americans. You open up your phone bill and wonder why there’s an extra zero, or several, on the amount that you owe.
Tom Udall
I do everything on my phone as a lot of people do.
Mark Zuckerberg
If something doesn’t work in my house – TV, phone, stereo, anything – I just call my dad, and he knows the answer.
Kimberley Nixon
My free time at home is usually spent emailing, listening to music, reading and talking on the phone. I wish I was on the phone less, but I have been fortunate to stay in touch with so many incredible friends.
Steve Nash
Everyone with a cell phone thinks they’re a photographer. Everyone with a laptop thinks they’re a journalist. But they have no training, and they have no idea of what we keep to in terms of standards, as in what’s far out and what’s reality. And they have no dedication to truth.
Helen Thomas
The future of communicating with customers rests in engaging with them through every possible channel: phone, e-mail, chat, Web, and social networks. Customers are discussing a company’s products and brand in real time. Companies need to join the conversation.
Marc Benioff
When television came along, I’d already done more than 10 years of radio work and I thought everyone would want me. I sat around waiting for the phone to ring – and it didn’t.
Orson Welles
It turns out that there is nothing so ‘ex’ as an ex-politician, especially a defeated one. Your phone goes dead.
Michael Ignatieff
I love my wife. We FaceTime and we talk on the phone and she travels to come see me when she can. But she works as well. But we see each other a lot more than people would think, though, because we make it happen and we love each other so much.
Wiz Khalifa
It’s hard to say conversation has become a minimal thing, because look at the rise of mobile communications in the last 10 years. It used to be only the president had a mobile phone. Now everyone on earth, even if they have nothing else, they have a cell phone.
Padgett Powell
Young adults living with a stutter is hard work. How do they handle job interviews? What do they do when the phone rings? How do they ‘chat someone up’? All these things the average person takes for granted prove to be a stammerer’s biggest challenge.
Gareth Gates
Digital organisms, while not necessarily any more alive than a phone book, are strings of code that replicate and evolve over time. Digital codes are strings of binary digits – bits.
George Dyson
One way I deal with stress is when I feel a certain way, I just do it. It’s like, I want a hamburger, so I’m just going to eat a hamburger. I don’t want to answer your phone call right now – I’m not going to answer your phone call. Just be able to say, ‘This is how I feel. This is the way it is, deal with it.’
Eric Nam
If David Bowie wants, I’ll put him in my phone book.
Mads Mikkelsen
I love ‘Breaking Bad.’ I’d watch Bryan Cranston read the phone book, for days.
Joel Kinnaman
I had a ’69 Road Runner when I was a kid. I had it for 13 days, came home one day, and my parents were in the driveway. They said, ‘Meet the new owner,’ because they’d gotten phone calls about me burning rubber for the last 12 days. They thought I’d wrap it around a tree, and it was too much car for a 16 year old.
William Fichtner
I actually have this fantasy of giving up my cell phone.
Julia Stiles
The stimulation I get from my phone does not feel like the opposite of boredom to me. It actually feels like a different flavor of boredom… a twitchier flavor. And sometimes, it’s almost more irritation than stimulation. It’s an itch.
Robin Sloan
The main Facebook usage is so big. About 20 percent of the time people spend on their phone is on Facebook.
Mark Zuckerberg
These days, children can text on their cell phone all night long, and no one else is seeing that phone. You don’t know who is calling that child.
Kamala Harris
If you were on the phone with me and Tommy right now, we would probably forget you were there, we’d just be cracking jokes. It’s like Beavis and Butthead.
Nikki Sixx
You can type things on the Internet. You can have no credentials in any area and just get on your smart phone and write whatever you want.
Roman Reigns
Ask any teenage girl to describe her perfect bedroom, and you’ll get answers like ‘a room with a private phone line, a place to hang out with friends, and for it to be way-cool and funky.’ Ask parents the same question, and ‘a locked door that opens on their 21st birthday’ might top the list!
Candice Olson
There is no reason why any legitimate caller should be spoofing an unassigned or invalid phone number. It’s just a way for scammers to evade the law.
Ajit Pai
I got a pair of red, synthetic satin women’s pants through the post the other day with a phone number on. That was quite strange. I haven’t tried the phone number. In times of stress I may.
Jarvis Cocker
I have an iPhone, and I can text, and I can use the phone, and I can even take pictures with it.
Carol Burnett
Our businesses can’t create jobs when they’re losing revenue, and the unemployed can’t apply for jobs when they can’t pay their phone bill.
Chellie Pingree
My age and my phone number are both unlisted.
Robert Osborne
I’ve never had to fight for a role. Call it my ego or my self-respect, but I won’t pick up the phone and call a producer and fight or ask for a role. That’s not me. I’ve always got the best, and my work speaks for itself.
Sonakshi Sinha
Your television has changed, your phone has changed. Why don’t these other things you need, that the government tells you you must have in your home, change?
Tony Fadell
I didn’t have any vices before the Internet. There are a lot of cracks in the day, moments where you don’t know what to do next, so you have a little hole where you look at your phone. You want something that will mean you’re not alone in that moment.
Miranda July
Advancements in technology have become so commonplace that sometimes we forget to stop and think about how incredible it is that a girl on her laptop in Texas can see photos and cell phone video in real time that a young college student has posted of a rally he’s at in Iran.
Rosalind Wiseman
The most important impact on society and the world is the cell phone. Cell phones have actually been one of the primary drivers in productivity improvements.
Fabrice Grinda
My phone and email have been hacked, I’ve been arrested by the police and followed by the pro-China people or the photographers from the pro-China newspapers.
Joshua Wong
Anyone with a smart phone is a potential eyewitness cameraman capturing and transmitting stories at speeds that turn Reuter photos and traditional reporting into, well… yesterday’s news.
Harvey Fierstein
You go to a Japanese restaurant and have a wonderful dish, and the thing to do is take a picture with your phone, put it on Facebook, and see how many likes you get. If you don’t share your experiences, they don’t become part of the data processing system, and they have no meaning.
Yuval Noah Harari
I got a call saying that George Lucas wanted to meet me. Of all the phone calls I’ve received – Oliver Stone wants to meet you; Spike Lee wants to meet you – that was the one call I never in a million years thought was going to happen.
John Ridley
One time, a girl dropped her phone in my pocket and I found it and was like, ‘There you go.’ And she said, ‘If you’d had my phone, you’d have had to meet up with me to give it back.’
Harry Styles
I was using Twitter a lot on my phone, and was realising there was a massive gap between the link on the tweet and the full story. If you could come up with a summary layer to show in Twitter, that would be awesome.
Nick D’Aloisio
Living on $6 a day means you have a refrigerator, a TV, a cell phone, your children can go to school. That’s not possible on $1 a day.
Bill Gates
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 think Facebook’s dangerous. So many people I know get into trouble with Facebook… I’d rather just pick up the phone. Or Skype.
Zara Phillips
I think everything is going to be devastatingly sad – when the phone rings, I know somebody in my family’s been hurt, somebody’s going to die. I’m sure a therapist would go, ‘That’s not a good way to live,’ but every time it’s not that bad thing, I’m so thankful and appreciative.
Sandra Bullock
The initial research will be very indiscriminate. I do a lot of reading, buy a stack of books and read and digest them, and then I start doing phone interviews and archival research and then the travelling.
John Jeremiah Sullivan
I won’t divulge the details, but there’s a way to call somebody’s phone and have whatever number you want appear on the caller I.D. so that the call you’re making appears to be coming from someone else.
Joshua Malina
We’ve got activists all across the country like the members of the Million Mom March organization, some of their leaders are here tonight. We’re phone banking congressional offices and pursuing editorial boards.
Michael D. Barnes
I also love to surf the Net and talk on the phone with friends.
Kiana Tom
A lot of people don’t know how to talk on the phone anymore.
Carly Rae Jepsen
One look at an email can rob you of 15 minutes of focus. One call on your cell phone, one tweet, one instant message can destroy your schedule, forcing you to move meetings, or blow off really important things, like love, and friendship.
Jacqueline Leo
When you start thinking about taking pictures, sending an e-mail, receiving an e-mail, speaking into your phone and have it transcript voice into text and then sent as an e-mail, it’s mind-boggling.
Steve Largent
I was at our beautiful home in Martha’s Vineyard, near Boston, sitting on the porch looking at the ocean when I got a phone called and was asked, ‘Would I like to do ‘CSI’?’ A week later, I’m at a coroner’s office in Las Vegas, participating in a quadruple autopsy.
Ted Danson
The hardest thing about my job isn’t the snake bites or the crocodiles, it’s being away from my children. I have a really religious satellite phone call every day back to the boys, wherever we are, whatever time zone, to say goodnight.
Bear Grylls
Most thermostats are built by plumbing companies. But you really need to understand how to build a phone to make them better.
Tony Fadell
There’s great value to knitting or digging up your garden or chopping up vegetables for soup, because you’re taking some time away from turning the pages, answering your emails, talking to people on the phone, and you’re letting your brain process whatever is stuck up in there.
Chellie Pingree
If you’re filming somebody doing something they really want to do, you’re probably not very high on their list of problems to deal with. You see James Carville on the phone – he’s like that whether you have a camera or not. He isn’t doing it just for you, and that’s hard to explain.
D. A. Pennebaker
I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone – and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.
Barack Obama
Sometimes I’ll be driving and a lyric will come into my head, and I will have to pull over and record it on my phone.
Lil’ Kim
I usually try to stay off my phone and enjoy the world, but when I am on my phone, it’s always for social media – to talk to my bros and my fans and my friends.
Ross Lynch
The killjoys initiated automobile crash standards so rigorous that we can’t buy a car that hasn’t been dropped from the top of a phone pole with our whole family strapped inside.
P. J. O’Rourke
Big brother listening in on your phone calls – I got a problem with that.
Roger Stone
It’s a world where you’re going to have a phone, a tablet, a computer – you don’t have to choose. And so what’s more important is how you seamlessly move between them all… It’s not like this is a laptop person and that’s a tablet person. It doesn’t have to be that way.
Phil Schiller
Like most guys, I’ve always liked watches. I can always check the time on my phone, but having a watch is so much better.
Andy Murray
I have about two or three people, we don’t have an office, we don’t even have a dedicated phone line. We do it out of our own homes, and we make it work.
John Zorn
I went through all my electric bills, the water bills, the phone bills, elevator contracts, and I found enough wasteful spending without reducing any programs anywhere, without reducing any services, I found enough wasteful spending to pay my entire salary for three years.
Thomas Massie
Tomorrow you might get a phone call about something wonderful and you might get a phone call about something terrible.
Regina Spektor
I get up early and open my emails, write cheques, and answer the phone; whatever needs to be done.
Martin Parr
I’m going to go away on vacation, I’m going to try to get away from the phone, away from scripts. I think it’s important to sit back and think about what you want.
Parker Stevenson
That’s the sign of a good relationship, when you can pick up a phone and it doesn’t matter when the last time you spoke was.
Joe Torre
The phone’s not ringing off the hook, but that’s ok by me. I feel very fortunate, work to me has become a kind of hobby.
Matt LeBlanc
It’s getting harder and harder to differentiate between schizophrenics and people talking on a cell phone. It still brings me up short to walk by somebody who appears to be talking to themselves.
Bob Newhart
The cell phone has become the adult’s transitional object, replacing the toddler’s teddy bear for comfort and a sense of belonging.
Margaret Heffernan
I love working with the Farrelly brothers. I’m a big fan and feel very lucky to have gotten to work with them a few times. One thing that I learned while working with them is that you have to keep your cell phone off when filming scenes, or you owe them a lot of money!
Carly Craig
Sponsored stories are not a great way to monetize mobile traffic. The phone is way more of a publishing tool than a reading tool. The attention users pay to the streams on mobile is far less than on the desktop.
Keith Teare
I feel like the phone was in my way. So I got rid of the phone to focus.
Young Thug
Time is kind of an amazing thing because you can do so much with it. I think people underestimate time… I don’t want to just sit on my phone for hours.
Billie Eilish
When a girl finally texts me back, that ding on the phone is like an angel singing.
Isaiah Mustafa
We’re already cyborgs. Your phone and your computer are extensions of you, but the interface is through finger movements or speech, which are very slow.
Elon Musk
The crucial legacy of the personal computer is that anyone can write code for it and give or sell that code to you – and the vendors of the PC and its operating system have no more to say about it than your phone company does about which answering machine you decide to buy.
Jonathan Zittrain
I don’t text, I don’t have a Blackberry. Literally, I just have a cell phone that I haven’t programmed and the whole Bluetooth. No. I don’t even have an earpiece for my cell phone.
Steve Carell
I don’t have a BlackBerry or whatever you call it. And there is something to be said for being isolated and out of phone range, because you can fall into a habit to such a degree that you don’t even realise that you’ve lost something: silence.
Viggo Mortensen
My perfect day is constantly changing. Right now, it would be to lie around in a hammock reading with a portable phone and a table of food next to it. I would spend all day there. And that’s all that I can possibly come up with on the spur of the moment.
Eric Stoltz
One of my favorite activities as a teen-ager was to watch television over the phone with my best friend.
Susan Orlean
I do think there is a lot of potential if you have a compelling product and people are willing to pay a premium for that. I think that is what Apple has shown. You can buy a much cheaper cell phone or laptop, but Apple’s product is so much better than the alternative, and people are willing to pay that premium.
Elon Musk
AT&T sucks. There’s no excuse for being in downtown Los Angeles, and your phone loses service. That’s ridiculous.
Blake Shelton
At 16, I started a web development business and had clients from the Netherlands, Caribbean, and across the country – none of whom knew my age because I could conduct all my business with a phone, scanner, and the Internet.
Aaron Patzer
I thought it was really funny that half the people I autographed things for said, ‘Autograph the back of my phone.’ I was like, ‘What? Really? Seriously?’ They didn’t have anything else.
Willow Shields
Any country that wants to lower its mobile phone rates, all they need to do is bring in an aggressive player.
Xavier Niel
I can look into someone’s eyes and feel like I know her better, versus a phone call, where you can’t get that same type of emotion. That’s why text messaging gets you in trouble: You can’t bond, and emoticons explain only so much.
Apolo Ohno
My cell phone bill and my cable gets cut off all the time. Not because I don’t have the money, but because I just forget to pay my bills.
Erin Cummings
Where I grew up, we had the three TV networks, maybe two radio stations, no cable TV. We still had a long-distance party line in our neighborhood, so you could listen to all your neighbors’ phone calls. We had a very small public library, and the nearest bookstore was an hour away.
Marc Andreessen
I have a home phone number, and I like it! It’s like a throwback already.
Spike Jonze
I live in England, so I take a lot of trains, and you can’t really go anywhere without somebody talking on their mobile phone behind you, forcing you to listen to their conversation. With the Internet, with texting, with networking sites, there’s already information everywhere.
Patrick Ness
The final phone call that said we’re going to be picked up again was just a miracle. We’ve overcome the impossible and we’re still pushing forward. I know John is smiling and so happy that he gets to watch us on TV.
Kaley Cuoco
Everybody knows I return all of my phone calls. I pick up my cell phone myself, much to the chagrin of my staff.
Joe Lhota
If someone doesn’t respond to a phone call, I think they’ve died.
Charlie Brooker
No phone, a movie, a glass of wine, and some salad. Perfect!
Kate Moss
I hate phone calls, so I believe in a telephone armistice. To me, the idea of calling someone unprompted is basically saying, ‘Hey, stop whatever you’re doing and talk to me right now.’ If you find yourself in the middle of something, getting an unprompted annoyance is incredibly frustrating.
Alexis Ohanian
Nick made me give away my Hello Kitty TV, my Hello Kitty microwave and my Hello Kitty toaster. I got to keep the Hello Kitty cordless phone.
Bridget Marquardt
I remember seeing Bill Hurt in New York once. I talked to him on the phone around 1988 and that’s about it. I was shooting in New York and somebody said Glenn Close came by the set.
Tom Berenger
It’s horrible dating with Mama Mai! She is nosy. When I was a kid she would be the first one eavesdropping on my phone calls: ‘Hello? Who you call for? Huh?’
Jeannie Mai
A phone tree isn’t an ancient form of political organizing, but you have to call every person.
Howard Rheingold
I like flying to New York from London. It’s like a day off for me. No phone or e-mails. Food, wine, iPod, movies, snoozing.
Ricky Gervais
Well, if I called the wrong number, why did you answer the phone?
James Thurber
I don’t like typing messages on my phone. Some people get used to it.
Bill Gates
It is important that people support prisoners of the Italian state like Joe in whatever way they can. I was not allowed contact with a lawyer for the first 24 hours, and no phone calls were permitted, but apparently telegrams have been getting through to Joe.
John Blair
Seven years after my mother’s passing, I still reach for the phone for a split second to call her. We spoke every day.
Tyler Perry
The idea of prosthetics is a tool. Most people’s cell phones are prosthetics. If you leave your cell phone at home, you feel impacted by not having it. It’s an important part of your daily function and what you can do in a day.
Aimee Mullins
I find it weird the way people get so excited about celebrity. If my friends are on the phone, their friends will say: ‘Is that kid from ‘Love Actually’ there?’ And the phone gets passed round and I have to speak to this stranger asking: ‘Are you famous?’ I don’t know how to answer.
Thomas Brodie-Sangster
My first phone was two tin cans tied together with string, and it worked pretty good.
Dolly Parton
I’ve found throughout the years that I needed a place where I can go with no TV, no computer, no phone and just have no distractions and just be able to sit and think and just not be disturbed.
Josh Turner
Sometimes we’re at hotels, and I’ll answer the phone. They’ll say, ‘Mr. Ripa, your breakfast is coming upstairs.’ And I’m like, Is my father-in-law here? But, obviously, I’m proud either way – Ripa or Consuelos.
Mark Consuelos
Three children have become adults since a phone call with Jo Rowling, containing one small clue, persuaded me that there was more to Snape than an unchanging costume, and that even though only three of the books were out at that time, she held the entire massive but delicate narrative in the surest of hands.
Alan Rickman
The technology is just so far gone. It’s just like back in the day you needed a suitcase just to have a cell phone. The battery was so heavy, it was like carrying a gallon of soda around with you all day.
Jam Master Jay
I never answer if someone knocks on my door and only the band and my manager have my phone number. In any case my phone doesn’t ring so I never notice it. I occasionally just walk past and pick it up to see if anyone’s there.
Robert Smith
I’m hopeless by e-mail, by phone, by text.
Rachel Maddow
I’ve been largely undecided about everything for most of my life. I can barely commit to a phone bill… Somewhere along the line it has become my career due to continuing work.
Robert Sheehan
He was so honest you could play craps with him over the phone.
Earl Wilson
In my office, I have a very beautiful marble bust of Seneca. I always have my eye on him when I’m taking phone calls. He’s one of the many philosophers I’ve always read and admired.
Brunello Cucinelli
Just in a professional world, sometimes a phone call is definitely more meaningful than a text.
Kevin Harvick
The diva tag just won’t go away. I think that’s because people want me to be like that. It makes it more interesting if I have thrown a phone at somebody or a water bottle. Sadly that’s just not me.
Katherine Jenkins
The two parts of technology that lower the threshold for activism and technology is the Internet and the mobile phone. Anyone who has a cause can now mobilize very quickly.
Howard Rheingold
Police departments no longer have to pay overtime or divert resources from other projects to find out where an individual goes – all they have to do is place a tracking device on someone’s car or ask a cell phone company for that individual’s location history and the technology does the work for them.
Ron Wyden
When I did my first price guide in 1979, publications weren’t interested in mentioning it. Now I get phone calls weekly if not daily from publications and television shows who want to know what’s hot, how to get started in antiques, and the best way to buy antiques.
Judith Miller
The Web provides a very easy way to immediately grasp what’s going on. It really offers the transparency, so you can see, especially with the search engine, how people are using Twitter at one glance. The phone doesn’t allow for that.
Jack Dorsey
There were the phone calls and Elvis had asked me to visit him in Los Angeles. This was in 1962.
Priscilla Presley
I have my cards read every time I pass a tarot-reader booth. I would be so embarrassed to have one of those 900 numbers appear on my phone bill, because I don’t know how I would explain it to my business manager. It would almost be like saying, ‘Okay, I’m white trash.’
Jennifer Tilly
To be in a band on the road is to have anything and everything you want just by picking up the phone.
Gene Simmons
How do you know someone is a grandparent? They’ve got milk stains on every shirt from burping babies. Their pants are worn out at the knees from crawling around giving pony rides. They have 2,842 pictures of the grandkids on their smart phone and not one photo of their spouse.
Regina Brett
My humble request to journalists – It only takes one phone call or an email to check facts.
Parvathy
It’s a juicy thing to say we’re building a phone, which is why people want to write about it. But it’s so clearly the wrong strategy for us.
Mark Zuckerberg
I’m signed to a U.S. label, and I didn’t enjoy the 3 A.M. phone calls. I’m not a great sleeper, so I didn’t enjoy being woken up.
Estelle
If you’re having dinner with friends and they’re always on the phone or always texting, it’s just impolite. Unless it’s something important – like someone is in the hospital or something – don’t do it.
Adriana Lima
I can’t get enough of London! I love all the picnic benches, the old-school phone booths and parks in the middle of the city.
Jessica Lowndes
I would say 90 percent of my mail and phone calls are from people who want some kind of help or succor or commitment from me to do something.
Peter Coyote
I think the reason why I’m an actress is because I got hooked on the feeling of studying for an audition, going to the audition, and then getting that phone call.
Paula Garces
AI – not so some kind of far-off thing. It’s part of our lives now, from your phone to everything you do. It makes our lives easier in a lot of ways.
Gemma Chan
In 1998, I received treatment for my knee by an Israeli therapist. We spoke about Israel and I mentioned ‘Scooterman’ and he just froze. It was like he had met Elvis. I thought he was kidding me and then he called his brother, they yelled to each other over the phone, and then I believed him.
Gary David Goldberg
A young woman hiking alone in the mountains sounds dangerous. In the pre-cell phone era maybe it was, but I’ll stop short of calling it foolish.
Claire Cameron
For the past few years I have engaged in several inappropriate conversations conducted over Twitter, Facebook, e-mail and occasionally on the phone with women I have met online.
Anthony Weiner
The best mobile phone had the best mathematician. They know how to fit a huge amount of data into a small amount of space. How to do things efficiently, how to do them cleverly.
Marcus du Sautoy
A smart phone essentially creates a dossier of your travels, and consumers have no control over who will eventually see that information.
Adam Cohen
As users replace usage of the web with a mobile, app-centric ecosystem, the phone becomes the center of gravity. In this mobile world, Facebook is just one app on the phone.
Keith Teare
I wouldn’t trust Nixon from here to that phone.
Barry Goldwater
The smart phone isn’t a perfect device, as we all know. It forces the world into a tiny screen. It runs out of battery, bandwidth, and power. It distracts us from the world around us.
John Battelle
Just don’t pull out your phone at all on the first date.
Jessica Szohr
I’m a reporter; you can’t subpoena people to talk to you. If you write to them and try to call them on the phone and they don’t answer or so forth, then take them unawares.
Mike Wallace
If I need a pick-me-up, I pull up a memo file on my phone and type in three things I’m grateful for. The things I’ve typed on other days are still there. It’s a long list. Always helps.
Andrew Yang
I drive with my knees. Otherwise, how can I put on my lipstick and talk on my phone?
Sharon Stone
If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?
Stephen Levine
The film world is a crazy place to be. You sit around all day waiting for the phone to ring. Are people talking about you or aren’t they?
Kyle MacLachlan
The cell phone has become the adult’s transitional object, replacing the toddler’s teddy bear for comfort and a sense of belonging.
Margaret Heffernan
In the early 1970s, phone phreaks manipulated the long-distance system using blue boxes that they built from sketchy photocopied schematics that were often riddled with errors. Not many had the skill to do this. Phreaking was restricted to a select few.
Charles Platt
I chose the Xperia based on its functions. Apart from using the phone to communicate, I also use it to take pictures. The image quality with this cell phone is great.
Okky Madasari
I think those who invest in mutual funds want someone else to do the thinking for them. But the fact that they can move the money around the family of mutual funds just through a phone call lets them feel that they can play tycoons.
Ron Chernow
When you wake up, instead of checking emails on your phone, or counting your retweets, pick up a pen and scratch a few sentences into a notebook.
Kevin Barry
Life in the NBA can be one big constant distraction, especially when you’re on the road. You’re always moving from one place to the next, always on the phone, checking texts, social media, all of that stuff. It takes you out of yourself.
C. J. McCollum
We help Chinese companies grow their customers abroad. They use Facebook ads to find more customers. For example, Lenovo used Facebook ads to sell its new phone. In China, I also see economic growth. We admire it.
Mark Zuckerberg
My mobile phone battery runs out all the time because all the messages come straight to me.
Ed Balls
‘We need a guy who plays dodge ball and thinks he’s a pirate – get me Alan Tudyk on the phone!’ Those are the jobs I do.
Alan Tudyk
I like 1977 because it is more primitive. If it were modern day, like one Universal guy was like wouldn’t they just use their cell phone? I guess he did not read that it was 1977 in the script.
Rob Zombie
People are familiar with ‘the stick’ of the Tea Party… challenging incumbents, flooding the phone lines. What they’re not so much familiar with, and what I want to expand, is ‘the carrot.’ So when a Mitch McConnell, or when a Republican caucus stands firm… we have to reward them.
Niger Innis
The most famous person in my phone is Lindsay Lohan. We starred in ‘Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen’ together in 2004 and we’ve stayed in touch.
Adam Garcia
It’s rare to work on a series without a writer. If you have a question about a line, then phone calls have to be made.
Rebecca Mader
My grandmother, when she looked at American movies, she said, ‘They’re all the same. In the first scene somebody shoots somebody and then everybody makes phone calls.’
Marina Abramovic
I want to be buried with a mobile phone, just in case I’m not dead.
Amanda Holden
Look for when the environment is changing – the big shift now is mobile Internet. It’s really happening big-time. The way you interact with services on a smart phone compared to the Web is quite different, so there’s a huge opportunity.
Niklas Zennstrom
I think I’ve been fortunate to be at the top of the game and in the media for years, and a lot of times, people want to be your friend when you’re on the top. You know, there have been times when I’ve been injured and I never got a phone call. So that’s the way it is.
Venus Williams
No phone. No pool. No pets. No cigarettes. Ultimate freedom… No longer to be poisoned by civilization, he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become Lost in the Wild.
Christopher McCandless
Sometimes I call directors. Sometimes I just meet with them. It just happens. It’s not that I’m pushy. It comes naturally. But I go ahead. I don’t stay in my armchair, waiting for the phone to ring.
Juliette Binoche
I try to be in the office as much as possible to get the full experience working with volunteers, making phone calls, putting out signs – things that the communications director probably normally wouldn’t do.
Hope Hicks
I collect pictures of adorable puppies on my phone. I have little room for anything else.
Cory Michael Smith
Anytime someone builds a little application that runs on a cell phone, there’s something that goes on the server.
James Gosling
Christopher Hitchens and I were not friends or even acquaintances. We never met or spoke on the phone, just exchanged occasional brief letters – notes, really – hand-written and snail-mailed at first, e-mailed later.
Florence King
I hate the amount of communication, the obligation that you have just by owning a phone.
Lucas Till
I oftentimes say that I design my collections off my phone. I’m in a group chat with my team in Milan. I copy and paste. I draw. I look at trends. I don’t really have an assistant. It’s a modern way of working. I don’t know if it’s sustainable, but it’s how I do it.
Virgil Abloh
It is painful to watch children trying to show off for parents who are engrossed in their cell phones. Children are nostalgic for the ‘good old days’ when parents used to read to them without the cell phone by their side or watch football games or Disney movies without having the BlackBerry handy.
Sherry Turkle
I daily disconnect and read a good book or listen to a good sermon or call a friend or my mom and talk on the phone with my feet up. I also take baths with bath salts that I make myself.
Kim Alexis
How I found out is, I landed in Des Moines from a plane ride back from the Rob Zombie tour. I was, like, ‘Okay, cool, I’m home. I can finally get some rest.’ Once I landed, I turned my phone on, and my manager rang, and I’m, like, ‘Oh, what?’ He said, ‘Paul Gray just died.’
Joey Jordison
The filmmakers who I’m pining to work for aren’t ringing my phone off the hook.
Sean Astin
I learned how to make an endoscope using a Swiss Army Knife, a cell phone camera, cell phone, and chewing gum.
Lucas Till
In the world of maternal health, cell phone technology is being used to provide prenatal care, linking pregnant women to health care providers when they can’t otherwise reach healthcare facilities.
Christy Turlington
Whenever I score for Manchester City, my mother calls me. As soon as the ball hits the back of the net, the phone rings. It doesn’t matter if she’s back home in Brazil or if she’s in the stadium watching me. She calls me every time. So I run to the corner flag, and I put my hand to my ear, and I say, ‘Alo Mae!’
Gabriel Jesus
There will come a day when the phone doesn’t ring as much as it used to.
Aidan Quinn
I’ve always loved video games. I played ‘Ms. Pac-man’ with my dad, and I Ioved ‘Galaga’ and ‘Tempest’ and grew up on the standing arcade games. Even to this day, my dad will call me if he’s playing ‘Ms. Pac-man’ and hold the phone up to the game.
Aisha Tyler
I literally change my phone number 10 times a year and I don’t ever save my contacts.
Rob Kardashian
I don’t tweet, Twitter, email, Facebook, look book, no kind of book. I have a land line phone at my home – that’s the only phone I have. If my phone rang every day like everyone else around me, I would lose my mind.
Patti LaBelle
I run with a credit card and a cell phone, so when there is not a 7-Eleven around, like some of the country roads out there, I can get him to deliver a pizza to me. And I kind of give them a coordinate, a corner.
Dean Karnazes
How is having every phone call that I make to my wife, to my daughter, relevant to any terror investigation?
Blake Farenthold
There’s nothing in the world more silent than the telephone the morning after everybody pans your play. It won’t ring from room service; your mother won’t be calling you. If the phone has not rung by 8 in the morning, you’re dead.
David Mamet
I’m old fashioned with my cell phone. I like that human contact and I think it’s important.
Giovanni Ribisi
I think Stevie Wonder could sing the phone book and manage to make me cry.
Brad Delp
I love the beach and rock climbing and boxing and nature, so I like to stay away from my phone as much as possible.
Millie Bobby Brown
I wrote one book, signed with a good agent, and sat back and waited for the phone to ring. I was sure that the great news would come at any moment. Four books later, I finally got that call.
Deb Caletti
When the phone started ringing too many times, I had to take it back to what I can handle. I take my chances on a job or a person as opposed to a situation. I don’t like to have a situation placed over my head.
Bill Murray
I’m not a naturally social-media inclined person. I still prefer phone calls to texts/emails. I… hate texts.
Constance Wu
If you’re an actor, even a successful one, you’re still waiting for the phone to ring.
Kevin Bacon
Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we’re too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.
Steven Spielberg
You want to see an angry person? Let me hear a cell phone go off.
Jim Lehrer
All things can be done by every company in the world. Apple builds a phone, and so does Samsung. It’s not about being different but about being better at what you do.
Bhavish Aggarwal
David James Elliott and I keep in touch via phone.
Patrick Labyorteaux
I see people putting text messages on the phone or computer and I think, ‘Why don’t you just call?’
William Shatner
I don’t like being able to be reached. I enjoy my solitude. Even people having my phone number seems like too much.
Brie Larson
Compared even to the development of the phone or TV, the Web developed very quickly.
Tim Berners-Lee
While the federal government is required by law to document publicly its wiretapping of phone lines, it is not required to do so with Internet communications.
Rebecca MacKinnon
We went to – I guess it was a legitimate boiler room, and I sat in front of this guy who literally was on the phone with two people at once. They call it double fisting.
Giovanni Ribisi
I’m not one of those people who sits at dinner on their iPhone all night. I’m either working or I’m not. I’ve gone down that path where you sleep with your phone beside the bed and send an email just before you put your head down and check everything again when you wake up, and I don’t like it.
Curtis Stone
I’m still friendly with Dean. He still calls me on the phone from time to time. John Dean was fired and later ended up spending some time in prison for his role in Watergate.
Fred F. Fielding
I do have a really good memory. I mean, like, I can remember all the phone numbers of everybody on the street I grew up on.
Mary Karr
AT&T sucks. There’s no excuse for being in downtown Los Angeles, and your phone loses service. That’s ridiculous.
Blake Shelton
As a teenager you are at the last stage in your life when you will be happy to hear that the phone is for you.
Fran Lebowitz
There’s no more important consumer product today than a cell phone.
Mary Dillon
So much in L.A. is waiting. It’s so irritating. That’s what’s good about stand-up. You can go away, and you don’t have to sit and wait by your phone. But it is very frustrating.
Norm MacDonald
I get a phone call once every 18 months from some mad person who wants me to do something for less than no money and they give me about a week’s notice. That’s my film career, most of the time.
Dylan Moran
I did a stint on ‘Dollhouse,’ and prior to my stint on ‘Dollhouse,’ I had no plans to be working with Joss Whedon until he said, ‘Hey, do you want to do this?’ When he calls, I’ll pick up the phone, and that’s how that works.
Alan Tudyk
I started writing it the day after Sept. 11. I was living in New York City. We didn’t have any phone service and we didn’t have any mail. Like a lot of writers do, I started to write in a voice that I missed.
Kathryn Stockett
If I was a parent or a kid, I would need a cell phone, and those things are invaluable, but my kids are out of the house now, and I am thrilled when I wake up to not have a cell phone, and feel like today is stretching out in front of me for 1,000 hours, as it seems.
Pico Iyer
I did the one concert, and I was not bitten by the conducting bug, and I thought I was done, but then the phone started to ring, and gradually, over time, I started conducting more and more. Now a third of my performances are with orchestras.
Bobby McFerrin
When I was a little boy, I was reading Dante and I was saying to myself ‘Bravo, Dante, Bravo.’ It’s so beautiful, the music, the sound, the meaning. I felt like calling him by phone, like a friend.
Roberto Benigni
When I ask people how much time they spend not doing their job – time spent on ‘work-about-work’ or phone calls or e-mails – people regularly tell me 60, or even 90 percent. So if Asana could take that down closer to zero, we could potentially double the effectiveness of humanity.
Justin Rosenstein
I grew up in a country where I remember my parents not being able to have a conversation on the phone. The walls had ears, and you couldn’t speak freely.
Jan Koum
Some people may have noticed the new computer shelf at the anchor desk. Rather than phone calls, we want to take real time e-mails, and we’ll be starting that very soon.
Catherine Crier
There’s so much more I want to do. I refuse to get to 50 and wait at home for the phone to ring. In Spain, actresses work until they are old. That’s my plan.
Penelope Cruz
I’d just gotten into Los Angeles from Texas, where I live, and the phone rang and it was the guy calling about the Willie Nelson video. I was totally excited about it.
Corin Nemec
I can look into someone’s eyes and feel like I know her better, versus a phone call, where you can’t get that same type of emotion. That’s why text messaging gets you in trouble: You can’t bond, and emoticons explain only so much.
Apolo Ohno
I usually just go on Google and spend my hours just Googling Jennifer Beals. I think it’s possible that I have a slightly unordinary obsession with her. YouTube videos. Interviews with her. Pictures I put on my desktop and my phone.
Adhir Kalyan
There’s so much more I want to do. I refuse to get to 50 and wait at home for the phone to ring.
Penelope Cruz
Almost everything in ‘A Day With Wilbur Robinson’ has some basis in truth. And yes, my sister did pay me to feed her grapes while she talked to her boyfriend on the phone.
William Joyce
You played ‘Snake’ on it. That’s what we had a cell phone for, when my mother would let us use it. When you had it, you set it down at the table, you set it down in the other room, we ate, and you enjoyed your time with your family.
Myles Garrett
I’ve tried plenty of telephones. I tried to get into the Samsung Galaxy and the Blackberry, but the iPhone is just too easy to use. The camera takes clear pictures and the phone itself looks great. Like all Apple products, it kind of just makes sense.
Avicii
New York as an industry is the best city for real estate. You’re in a very transparent market. If you need to liquidate, you make three phone calls and you could sell something, even in the worst market. It is also less forgiving; if you make a mistake you can lose money.
Aby Rosen
I’ve always been a slow starter. My first date was with a girl called Cessi. We had a beautiful relationship over the phone all summer, and then when we met, I couldn’t look her in the eye.
Leonardo DiCaprio
I got a phone call from Fearne Cotton. It was amazing! I literally couldn’t believe it. It was so cool. It was the night before I was going on her show to sing on the ‘Live Lounge.’ She was so lovely.
Birdy
I could give up my phone any day. I don’t need it.
Millie Bobby Brown
I was really ambitious, so I was innovative. I was one of the first DJs to do live calls, ’cause I found this phone device that would pick up other people’s voices.
Idris Elba
One look at an email can rob you of 15 minutes of focus. One call on your cell phone, one tweet, one instant message can destroy your schedule, forcing you to move meetings, or blow off really important things, like love, and friendship.
Jacqueline Leo
Airplanes are a good place to concentrate because you get no emails, no phone calls.
Alvin Leung
I look at my first appointment book from 1965 and I get dizzy. I was constantly in a phone booth calling photographers.
Lauren Hutton
The only still center of my life is Macbeth. To go back to doing this bloody, crazed, insane mass-murderer is a huge relief after trying to get my cell phone replaced.
Patrick Stewart
I only watch National Geographic Channel, and also I have the app on my phone. I’m into astronomy and love to learn about new facts.
Sonu Nigam
I always doodled as a kid while I was talking on the phone or watching TV.
Bruce Eric Kaplan
When I made ‘Real,’ I recorded it over the phone in prison. I did it in a week. I had no idea what it was going to sound like. I couldn’t even listen to the masters before it came out, I couldn’t listen to 90% of the beats. I recorded 21 songs in seven days.
Anuel AA
Calgary wins for my coldest New Year’s Eve gig. That’s when I learned Fahrenheit and Celsius cross at 40 below. I could see callers’ breath coming out of my phone.
Elayne Boosler
I guess everywhere I go, I get inspired by those places, and then I have a bunch of Voicenotes on my phone. Everywhere I go, I think of these random melodies. It’s crazy because everywhere you go, the melodies are totally different.
Henry Lau
An article can be timely, topical, engaged in the issues and personalities of the moment; it is likely to be stale within the month. In five years, it may have acquired the quaint aura of a rotary phone. An article is usually Siamese-twinned to its date of birth.
Cynthia Ozick
I use technology for communication, but I don’t have a Blackberry or an iPhone. I use an outdated cell phone, but I’m fine with it.
Nicolas Cage
Would I buy a cell phone for my 12-year-old?… No. I should have closer control over my child than that. He really shouldn’t be in places where he needs to contact me by cell.
Stephen Baker
I practice at home, in between phone calls, and have much to do.
Bill Bruford
DJing is my only peace of mind. When the phone is off, I play my favourite songs really loud for myself, and I’m not talking to anyone; I’m not managing anything. It’s just, like, a time when I can listen to music.
Virgil Abloh
And understand that scarce spectrum is used today for example for cell phone operators, they have to pay for the airwaves they use, for their services.
Robert McChesney
Basically he never went to work and didn’t have a job. Of course I thought he did. I thought he was on the phone doing business deals instead of borrowing money from people.
Christie Brinkley
There have been times I’ve finished a big job and thought, ‘Great, a couple of weeks off.’ But then a couple of weeks turns to three weeks and then after a month you’re staring at the phone willing it to ring.
Johnny Vegas
There is a generation of skimmers. It’s not that they don’t want to read in-depth content, but they want to evaluate what the content is before they commit time. Especially on a mobile phone – you don’t have the phone, or cellular data, or screen size to be reading full-length content.
Nick D’Aloisio
Remember that as a teenager you are in the last stage of your life when you will be happy to hear the phone is for you.
Fran Lebowitz
I’ve got Colin Firth’s number in my phone!
Taron Egerton
Basketball is my passion, I love it. But my family and friends mean everything to me. That’s what’s important. I need my phone so I can keep in contact with them at all times.
LeBron James
It’s fun to get a message on the phone service that Lucille Ball or Burt Reynolds called, and play it very blase by asking, ‘Anyone else?’
Charles Nelson Reilly
Certain kinds of intimacy emerge on a phone call that might never occur if you were sitting right next to the other person.
Errol Morris
Despite being in public life, I value my own privacy immensely and would be as concerned as anyone else if I thought my mobile phone records could be easily available to officials across government.
David Blunkett
I once joked in a book that there are three things you can’t do in life. You can’t beat the phone company, you can’t make a waiter see you until he is ready to see you, and you can’t go home again.
Bill Bryson
You know, this iPhone, as a matter of fact, the engine in here is made in America. And not only are the engines in here made in America, but engines are made in America and are exported. The glass on this phone is made in Kentucky. And so we’ve been working for years on doing more and more in the United States.
Tim Cook
I have lots of brothers and sisters, two of whom are younger than myself, so I rely on my phone, text messaging or e-mailing to stay in the loop and communicate when I’m away for big chunks of time.
Devon Aoki
The best mobile phone had the best mathematician. They know how to fit a huge amount of data into a small amount of space. How to do things efficiently, how to do them cleverly.
Marcus du Sautoy
I’m rarely in a position where I can actually answer my phone without being rude to someone else. Sometimes I look back and realize it’s been weeks since I’ve actually been alone. With texting, I can at least get a sense of what’s going on without interrupting what I’m doing.
Steve Huffman
A telephone survey says that 51 percent of college students drink until they pass out at least once a month. The other 49 percent didn’t answer the phone.
Craig Kilborn
I lived in New York for a long time. Right after college I went there. So I got my first cell phone in New York. Back when you would flip the phone up. Way back when.
Stephanie Beatriz
I have gone on the air and announced my telephone number at the Washington Post. I go into the night, talking to people, looking for things. The great dreaded thing every reporter lives with is what you don’t know. The source you didn’t go to. The phone call you didn’t return.
Bob Woodward
A friendship can weather most things and thrive in thin soil; but it needs a little mulch of letters and phone calls and small, silly presents every so often – just to save it from drying out completely.
Pam Brown
People thought I was crazy thinking about a phone you can just put in your pocket.
Martin Cooper
Sundays in France have a different atmosphere to other days, with fewer phone calls, no postman, no delivery men and no one banging on the door.
Peter Mayle
Every morning, I go off to a small studio behind my house to write. I try to ignore all email and phone calls until lunchtime. Then I launch into the sometimes frantic busy-ness of a tightly scheduled day.
Daniel Goleman
I’ve got a pen and I’ve got a phone – and I can use that pen to sign executive orders and take executive actions and administrative actions that move the ball forward.
Barack Obama
Yes, I was the one people credit with inventing the cell phone. Now, whenever anyone gets a dropped call, they blame me.
Martin Cooper
Remember Tupperware? That was the toughest stuff ever. Why can’t they make a phone out of Tupperware?
J. B. Smoove
It is so exciting to get a phone call saying you’re going to be working on a Disney film.
Christina Hendricks
My family has had to become quite understanding about me not returning phone calls when I’m filming.
Anna Kendrick
Your phone needs to recharge every night. Your laptop needs to recharge. Everything needs to recharge. Are you giving yourself space, time and effort to recharge?
Jay Shetty
My kitchen’s pink, like skin-tone pink, and I lowered my spice rack so it’s eye level – it’s true! – and my phone, so I can reach it when I fall, it’s right there.
Amy Sedaris
Today or any day that phone may ring and bring good news.
Ethel Waters
The Google Voice service is a lifesaver for me. My actual phone number changes a lot, so having a canonical Google Voice number that doesn’t change – it’s actually my same number from high school – is indispensable.
Matt Mullenweg
What’s an ambush interview? You walk up to a fellow who you want to talk to, and he hasn’t been – he hadn’t been willing to talk to you before. You’ve sent him letters, and you’ve tried to talk to him on the phone. So you walk up to him on the street and ask him a question – that’s an ambush?
Mike Wallace
I always like to have faith that an audience will suspend their disbelief, if you present it to them in the right way. I find it peculiar when people scoff at one bold idea, and yet they’ll then turn over and watch a man travel through time in a police phone box. I think it’s just how you present the idea.
Tom Mison
My phone was not ringing very much at the time after USC, and that was a very humbling experience after being let go there and to go through that process. You start calling a lot of people that don’t call you back all of a sudden, and you realize things about people.
Lane Kiffin
Now I’m starting to jog. But every time I do jog I have 9-1 pressed into my phone, with the next ‘1’ ready to be launched in case I drop.
Kevin James
Texts and e-mails travel no faster than phone calls and telegrams, and their content isn’t necessarily richer or poorer.
Alison Gopnik
Stay humble. Always answer your phone – no matter who else is in the car.
Jack Lemmon
If you just hold your cell phone for 30 seconds and think backwards through its production, you have the entire techno-industrial culture wrapped up there. You can’t have that device without everything that goes with it.
Douglas Tompkins
Sometimes when you lose your mobile phone, even though it’s frustrating, it’s sort of rewarding in many ways because, though we do rely on them a lot, we are not reliant on them. The world continues without.
Matt Smith
It’s really annoying when you’re trying to get to know someone and she doesn’t pay attention to you because she’s obsessed with her phone.
Cory Monteith
It’s nice to have something else going on when a book comes out so you’re not just sitting by the phone, waiting for things to happen. You don’t want to be the guy Googling himself all day.
Jonathan Dee
My mind is constantly going. For me to completely relax, I gotta get rid of my cell phone.
Kenny Chesney
I don’t use e-mail or a computer. I would be so inundated that I wouldn’t be able to get any work done. Instead, I do everything in person or on the phone.
John Paul DeJoria
Who wants to talk on the phone? If you want to talk to me, text me. Or if we must, let’s meet in person.
Douglas Coupland
It’s amazing how a simple brief phone call can pick up the spirits of the most dejected hamster, the most stressed goldfish and the most neurotic cat.
Noel Edmonds
If it’s the Psychic Network why do they need a phone number?
Robin Williams
I remember when I got my first (and only) iPad – excitement filled the air as I opened the box and stared at what was essentially a big iPhone but without the phone part. I knew I really wanted it, and at the same time, I knew I didn’t need it.
Rhys Darby
Today or any day that phone may ring and bring good news.
Ethel Waters
You have to love the doing of what you’re doing and not wait for the phone to ring.
Robert Stack
I never picked up my phone and called a bookmaker and bet on a baseball game from the clubhouse. Never.
Pete Rose
That actually is one of my huge challenges right now because I write best at night, no question. I can focus. You know you’re not getting any phone calls, I can shut everything down, and I’m just more creative at night.
Stephenie Meyer
Please don’t think that I am one of those squishy types who can’t handle reality. I have plenty of real-world things to deal with all the time. I have deadlines, meetings, I answer the phone, I get turned down, I wait in lines and am forced to pass for normal all the time.
Henry Rollins
Who on earth would expect a band such as Nightwish, to give you, of all people, the phone call, ‘Hey, can you come and join us now?’ Yeah, that turned everything upside down.
Floor Jansen
I’m well in touch with my family, my children. I keep them on my answer phone, so if I want to hear one of their voices, all I have to do is punch it up and it will be there.
Davy Jones
I had a normal upbringing and went to public school. If I ever, even for a second, started getting a big head, I was brought back to reality pretty quickly. I was working full time and still had to fight for a cell phone.
Mila Kunis
I sit my three sons down and say, ‘Listen to me. When the police stop you, immediately comply. Don’t walk away, don’t smart-mouth; get your hands up and get down on the ground.’ If you’re not black, you might not have to have that conversation, but I go over and over it with them because I don’t want that phone call.
Steve Harvey
I’m unique for a suspense author in that I don’t have a specialty background. A lot of suspense writers used to be lawyers or crime beat reporters. I didn’t even know a cop when I started out. I finally figured out that I could visit prisons – I just had to be willing to make the phone calls.
Lisa Gardner
I have great luck. I’m used to people dying and going away. Not used to it exactly – but I expect it. Like, whenever people go off on a trip, I save their phone messages because I think they might die.
Rose McGowan
I’m much more into old-world, intimate conversations on the phone. I like to write letters.
Kimora Lee Simmons
Inexpensive phones and pay-as-you go services are already spreading mobile phone technology to many parts of that world that never had a wired infrastructure.
Howard Rheingold
I write everything down. I e-mail the second I think of something, or I write notes in my BlackBerry calendar. I set up reminder alerts on my phone. And I have a notebook by my bedside so I can write down any last-minute ideas.
Giada De Laurentiis
My two must-haves are my cell phone and my MacBook Pro laptop, which allows me to update my Web site from wherever I am, whether I’m in Africa or in Sun Valley skiing.
Daryn Kagan
The hardest thing which I’ve experienced is calling up my father, Rance Howard, who’s a wonderful actor, and telling him I’ve had to cut him out of the movie, which I’ve had to do twice. That’s a lump-in-the-throat phone call.
Ron Howard
I would love for my phone to scream if I am about to miss an important thing in my life and never bother me if I’m doing something very important and the information coming in is less important than what I’m doing.
Sundar Pichai
I just went off for two months traveling around Europe on a motorcycle and pretty much turned my phone off. I did 5,000 miles with my dad. We went through Holland, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Italy… and then I did Spain and France by myself.
Michael Fassbender
If an NSA, FBI, CIA, DIA, etc analyst has access to query raw SIGINT databases, they can enter and get results for anything they want. Phone number, email, user id, cell phone handset id (IMEI), and so on – it’s all the same.
Edward Snowden
I had this one audition – I won’t say the casting director’s name, but she was on the phone the whole time I sang. I was literally doing my audition, and she was on the phone. So I guess whatever it is she was ordering for lunch was more important than the high C’s I was belting out.
Tituss Burgess
When I get off the phone with my parents, usually I’m in a good spot.
Marcus Mariota
I keep my phone on the floor in my bedroom, and I turn the sound off when I sleep, but I never really turn my phone off.
Meryl Davis
I have 5 teenage daughters, and I learned the hard way – it’s difficult to talk to any person under the age of 25 without the presence of a cell phone.
Marc Ostrofsky
When you’re Judy Garland and you want something, you just pick up the phone and call somebody. Anybody.
Lorna Luft
Why do people always gesture with their hands when they talk on the phone?
Jonathan Carroll
I was just in the middle of singing a song about how broke we were and now my cell phone rings.
Joel Madden
I used to be very vain about my thumbs. I have fat thumbs. If there’s a movie where you see me on the phone, it’s not my hands.
Miles Teller
I have a feeling when I’m 80 years old I’m going to get a phone call: There’s going to be another Rocky.
Talia Shire
I think everything worked out the way it was supposed to. Mark’s happier. I’m sober. There are still phone calls to be made, people I need to say something to. But everyone from Creed who I’ve offended or hurt, I ask for their forgiveness.
Scott Stapp
An established film director can just pick up the phone and say to a star, ‘Hey, are you interested in doing a commercial?’
Tony Scott
It is a great honor to be awarded a Nobel Prize. This is a wonderful experience for my wife Betty and me. We received congratulations by email, phone and post, many from old friends we had not seen for some time.
Willard Boyle
I have not heard from President Barack. I’ve never gotten a phone call.
Jay Pharoah
I am always saying, ‘I don’t believe in God; I believe in Al Pacino.’ And that’s true. If I ever get a phone call saying ‘Would you like to work with Al Pacino?’ I would go crazy.
Javier Bardem
A typical smart phone has more computing power than Apollo 11 when it landed a man on the moon.
Nancy Gibbs
The mobile phone is used from when you get up in the morning and is often the last thing you interact with at night.
Jan Chipchase
There’ll come a writing phase where you have to defend the time, unplug the phone and put in the hours to get it done.
James Taylor
I had played in a tournament with the captain of the University of Minnesota’s golf team, and he thought I was good. He called his coach, and the coach called me and recruited me. A five-minute phone call changed my life.
Tom Lehman
I like texting as much as the next kidult – and embrace it as yet more evidence, along with email, that we live now in the post-aural age, when an unsolicited phone call is, thankfully, becoming more and more understood to be an unspeakable social solecism, tantamount to an impertinent invasion of privacy.
Will Self
We’re already cyborgs. Your phone and your computer are extensions of you, but the interface is through finger movements or speech, which are very slow.
Elon Musk
As long as I can make a phone call and do a WhatsApp, I’m fine.
Christine McVie
People’s behavior will change with technology. I know very few young people who can’t type out a text message on their phone with one thumb, for instance.
Howard Rheingold
Thinking of that movie ‘The Artist’; if anyone ever needed to reach anyone, I’m just thinking they didn’t have cell phones, they didn’t have Internet, they didn’t have email, so I always wonder how it was back then where you had to be home if you needed to get a phone call; otherwise, people couldn’t get a hold of you.
Edy Ganem
Unlike the phone system, which is engineered around an application, the Internet layered model allows you to, in essence, separate applications from infrastructure.
Michael K. Powell
When you explain to people what you’re trying to do, as opposed to just making demands or delegating tasks, you can build instant trust, even if it’s just for that short time you’re on the phone.
Simon Sinek
Red carpets seem so glamorous, but you’re really just standing there sweating and worrying your hair is going to fall. And in the end, people are only going to see one picture of you. You just smile for one second and then you walk over to the side and check your phone. It’s pretty weird.
Morgan Saylor
When I was shooting ‘The Bourne Identity,’ I had a mantra: ‘How come you never see James Bond pay a phone bill?’ It sounds trite, but it became the foundation of that franchise.
Doug Liman
I think people are obsessed with their pets because pets don’t speak. It’s that simple. After you hang up the phone, you never hear a dog say, ‘You’re a liar, and you are making the same self-sabotaging mistakes that have kept you single for far too long.’
Taylor Negron
It is painful to watch children trying to show off for parents who are engrossed in their cell phones. Children are nostalgic for the ‘good old days’ when parents used to read to them without the cell phone by their side or watch football games or Disney movies without having the BlackBerry handy.
Sherry Turkle
I’ve found I get big things done when I’m on airplanes or in hotel rooms. It’s a total needle-mover to book a fantastic room in a place you adore and then put the ‘do not disturb’ on the phone and door for a week.
Robin S. Sharma
If you were going to die soon and had only one phone call you could make, who would you call and what would you say? And why are you waiting?
Stephen Levine
It is exhausting knowing that most of the time the phone rings, most of the time there’s an email, most of the time there’s a letter, someone wants something of you.
Stephen Fry
Growing up and seeing Shawn Johnson, for her to call me on the phone, I think my inner child was freaking out!
Laurie Hernandez
I cry very easily. It can be a movie, a phone conversation, a sunset – tears are words waiting to be written.
Paulo Coelho
So I went out and bought myself a copy of the Writer and Artist Yearbook, bought lots of magazines and got on the phone and talked to editors about ideas for stories. Pretty soon I found myself hired to do interviews and articles and went off and did them.
Neil Gaiman
The way we’re going… if I called up another pitcher, he’d just hang up the phone on me.
Frank Robinson
There’s a latter-day notion that artsy hippie types in the 1960s disdained the space program. Not in my experience they didn’t. We watched, transfixed with reverence, not even making rude remarks about President Nixon during his phone call to the astronauts.
Patrick Nielsen Hayden
I don’t use a stylist. I know what I like, so I do it myself. I rip things out from fashion magazines. It’s easy to order when the phone number is right on the page.
Aerin Lauder
I have held the following jobs: office temp, ticket seller in movie theatre, cook in restaurant, nanny, and phone installer at the Super Bowl in New Orleans.
Adriana Trigiani
Nobody ever texts me, because they know what I’m like. I’m a constant frustration to my children because I never switch my mobile phone on. I only use it when I need to make a call or when I’m stuck somewhere or lost, then I switch it off again. I’ve never texted anyone in my life, and I’m not sure I even know how to.
Terry Wogan
The danger for a comedian on Twitter is the same danger that any civilian faces: sometimes you gotta put that phone down and go live your life. When you’re on Twitter, you’re not living, and if you’re not living, you’re not taking in stimuli with which you can create new material.
Rob Delaney
You want to be a writer? Start writing. You want to be a filmmaker? Start shooting stuff on your phone right now.
Matthew McConaughey
In 1979, I received a phone call from Ansel Adams asking me if I would be willing to consider coming to work for him. I was teaching photography in Southern California at that point.
John Sexton
I’ve found throughout the years that I needed a place where I can go with no TV, no computer, no phone and just have no distractions and just be able to sit and think and just not be disturbed.
Josh Turner
I feel like I’m the luckiest person alive. I’m always waiting for that phone call: ‘Hello. We’ve just realized you’re really a no-talent hillbilly. We’ve made a horrible mistake and we’d like you to leave now.’
Lance Burton
We need to bring Android and Chrome to every screen that matters for users, which is why we focused on phone, wearables, car, television, laptops, and even your workplace.
Sundar Pichai
Everybody’s got their phone up and everybody’s taking recordings and posting it on YouTube and whatever and sending it to you, and it gets shown around the world.
Franklin Graham
I want to let my friend Buster know that I would like to have dinner with him tonight. Does Buster work at home? Then how likely is he to have his cell phone on? Is he one of those people who only turns on his cell when he’s in his car? I hate that.
Susan Orlean
Suddenly I was the man who got the part that every actor in the English language was trying to get. I was really scared. I had talked the talk, and now I had to walk the walk. For three days, I couldn’t answer the phone.
F. Murray Abraham
That’s what the internet is: it’s like bombarding your eyeballs with these myriad blinking colour lights. It’s like trying to watch a movie on your phone in the middle of Times Square.
Michel Gondry
At home, I’m lucky if I can write three or four hours before the phone starts ringing and the kids want to go to soccer.
Steve Earle
Being an actress can be a little like being a girl in the ’50s: You’re stuck waiting by the phone, hoping that the boy you like will call.
Zooey Deschanel
I wish I had never taken naked pictures of myself on a phone to send to a girl. It’s the worst thing ever.
Pete Wentz
In ‘Casino,’ there was this scene where Bob De Niro tape-records Sharon Stone’s phone call. Then he asks her about where she’s going, and he catches her in a lie. It was a great scene, especially for Bob’s work, but we found that, in light of the whole film, it wasn’t needed.
Thelma Schoonmaker
When I was a kid, among the other embarrassing things I would do, and there’s a list of stupid things, but I would make these dumb comedy tapes. I would often make prank phone calls, but I would also do it with friends.
J. J. Abrams
This is my Achilles heel. If some Internet technician is on the phone with me and he’s being irrational and incompetent and stupid, I get really mad and I can sort of feel my blood pressure going up.
Martha Nussbaum
The joke in our family is that we can cry reading the phone book.
Ron Reagan
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
What I have now are good problems of trying to decide and what I really want to do is good work next. My phone’s ringing a lot more and I’ve got nine lines so when it doesn’t ring, it’s very frustrating.
Bob Saget
Dropbox is useful to anyone with a phone. That’s, like, two billion people.
Drew Houston
It’s not good enough for us to have generations of kids that… look forward to a better version of a cell phone with a video in it. They need to look forward to exploration.
Burt Rutan
Turn off your email; turn off your phone; disconnect from the Internet; figure out a way to set limits so you can concentrate when you need to, and disengage when you need to. Technology is a good servant but a bad master.
Gretchen Rubin
We are the greatest computers in this world, but now we’ve created the smart phone which is smarter than us now, but we’re still making dumb decisions. We have given our creations more power than we have, and that to me is dumb.
Bootsy Collins
I love blasting good music on the Bluetooth speakers through my phone.
Neeraj Chopra
Giving kids whatever they ask for is disastrous parenting. There’s no sense of something earned. I’m sorry, but when you’re 12, you don’t need a new cell phone every few months just because a new one comes out.
Ewan McGregor
Call-time has renewed my faith in the need for public financing of elections. ‘Call-time’ is where I as the candidate, sit in a room with my ‘call-time manager,’ and a phone. Then I call people and ask them for money. For hours. Apparently, I’m really good at it.
Al Franken
I like to get suggestions on what to read. I’ll look at Twitter, people I like, people I admire… I’ll go and research the book, download it on my phone and read it while I’m on the road.
Vance Joy
I received a phone call; my agent got a phone call from Ryan Murphy saying he wanted to talk to me… And he basically outlined ‘American Horror Story’ for me and said that there’s a character named Larry the Burn Guy, and I’d like you to play it.
Denis O’Hare
A lot of people have asked me to do answer phone messages for them.
Andy Serkis
I sold steaks over the phone in Omaha, Nebraska. Marbling, fantastic. That’s what makes a great steak; a lot of people don’t know.
Adam DeVine
It’s amazing how a simple brief phone call can pick up the spirits of the most dejected hamster, the most stressed goldfish and the most neurotic cat.
Noel Edmonds
Our goal is to have YouTube on every screen – to take it from the PC to the living room and the mobile phone.
Steve Chen
I never know how to get off the phone, so I’m terribly admiring of people who can.
Nellie McKay
If I had only 60 seconds, I would pack some clothes, my phone, charger, toothbrush, head scarf, and shoes.
Skai Jackson
Mike is the craziest person. He’s scattered; he’s all over the place. When you hold him down and tell him, ‘This is what you’re doing,’ he’s fantastic. But you have to hold him down. Like, when he had to write his verse for ‘Hello Nasty,’ we had to take his phone away to get him to do it.
Ad-Rock
When you’re on a submarine you’re usually underwater for months at a time, and you don’t get to Skype or make phone calls. When you get messages, they’re maybe two sentences. They’re very short.
Jessy Schram
When I feel stress, I put my phone down. I’m quite strict, telling myself not to take anything else on. Then, in the evening when the kids have gone to bed, I’ll treat myself to a hot bath.
Rochelle Humes
Turn off your email; turn off your phone; disconnect from the Internet; figure out a way to set limits so you can concentrate when you need to, and disengage when you need to. Technology is a good servant but a bad master.
Gretchen Rubin
Did you know that, if you visualise, you can actually hug on the phone?
Shelley Long
My best friend is the most important girl, outside of family, to me. I met her when I went to college and we bonded immediately. I’d do anything for her at any time. We phone each other every day.
Dawn French
At times, when I reach my saturation point, I go to some random place and throw my phone away.
Arijit Singh
If I play hard to get, soon the phone stops ringing altogether.
Mason Cooley
I don’t know how old my phone is, but it was only $10. It is a nice subconscious way of not having the Internet at your fingertips… e-mail, Twitter or Facebook.
Andrew Luck
When I came into the mobile phone business, I was really the upstart who pretty much took the business, not quite by storm, but really made an impact on it quite early on. But it was from a position, really, of feeling that I was a last mover.
John Caudwell
A senator will come off Capitol Hill and they’ll be barred from two years from lobbying in the Senate. So they’ll pick the phone up and they’ll call their buddy, the senator, their old buddies, and they’ll say, ‘Listen, I’m here at this law firm now. I can’t lobby you, but my new partner, Jack, can lobby you.’
Jack Abramoff
I’ve got a full plate, yes I do. That iPod, that’s nice. A phone recorder? Nicely done. All right I’m a bit of a tech geek. I have a subscription to Popular Science and I keep up on all this stuff.
Nathan Fillion
I did Phone Booth, and that was shot very, very quickly, but that was Joel Schumacher, who’s shot so many movies that, if anybody can figure out how to do it in a couple of days, it’s him.
Katie Holmes
At times, when I reach my saturation point, I go to some random place and throw my phone away.
Arijit Singh
Have you ever felt like a phone call that’s been disconnected?
Shannen Doherty
As a novelist, there are three phone calls you never expect to receive in your lifetime because if you waited for them you would grow despairing – one calling from Stockholm with a Swedish accent, one from the NBA, and one from Oprah Winfrey.
Chris Bohjalian
My life’s ambition is to play a James Bond villain. I have the cat and the eye-patch, so I’m just waiting for the call. For some reason, though, the phone hasn’t rung.
Toby Young
Here’s how I operate. When I see something I like, 20 years later, I ask her brother for her phone number. She don’t even see me coming.
Ron White
Once your kids get older and get out of the house, it’s not like it stops. They’re on the phone with me every day; I’m intimately involved in their problems.
Rosanne Cash
I don’t answer my phone in a restaurant.
Tom Douglas
When he was not talking about race, David Duke was a very pleasant guy to talk to. He was a very nice conversationalist. He seemed like a regular guy on the phone when the subject wasn’t on race and on Jews and ethnicity.
Ron Stallworth
I was on my bike, cycling to Stanford, and it struck me that a week had gone by without my having a phone. And everything was just fine. Better than fine, actually. I felt more relaxed, carefree, happier.
Steve Hilton
Thanks to iCloud and other services, the choice of a phone or tablet today may lock a consumer into a branded silo, making it hard for him or her to do what Apple long importuned potential customers to do: switch.
Jonathan Zittrain
I have to be honest: I don’t get many, if any – I don’t know that I’ve ever received a phone call in my office from somebody that says they’ve been discriminated against based on their sexual orientation.
Kevin Cramer
The thing about members of your family is that if you met them for the first time at a party, you might not bother to take their phone number, and yet something binds you.
Celia Imrie
I think most people in the developed world would admit to carrying some sort of handheld device, whether it’s a laptop or a cell phone, at all times.
Alexis Denisof
When she was in United States, we maintained contact, we talked to each other on the phone, almost every night. And there was one occasion I tried to fix this video conferencing but somehow it did not come out very well enough so better to talk on the phone.
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi
The causes and severity of NSA infractions vary widely. One in 10 incidents is attributed to a typographical error in which an analyst enters an incorrect query and retrieves data about U.S phone calls or emails.
Barton Gellman
It’s like, if you can’t focus on a movie for 90 minutes without looking at your phone, then don’t go to the movies! You’ve got some issues, so you should probably stay home and work on those issues, and not distract everyone with lights, and sounds, oh my gosh, the tapping on the screens, it makes me crazy!
Ginnifer Goodwin
I’ll hear a beat and think, ‘How can I make this a banger?’ I’ll write the lyrics on my phone or on a piece of paper, and either way, it’s going to be a slapper.
Swae Lee
I’ve never sent an email in my life. My kids laugh. I often hand the phone to them and say, ‘Can you text this message to somebody.’ I don’t even have a computer on my desk.
Sebastian Coe
I like having the digital camera on my smart phone, but I also like having a dedicated camera for when I want to take real pictures.
Jeff Bezos
Asking Siri where the nearest sushi bar is – that’s not interesting. What’s interesting is asking your phone where one of your friends have last had dinner in the neighborhood, or having it recommend a cool paella place in Barcelona because it knows you eat paella all the time at home.
Dennis Crowley
Only my phone number and email are private because I don’t want random people calling me. But I like the ability to share everything.
Paul Buchheit
When filming for ‘Beowulf,’ we were close to Hadrian’s Wall; there was no phone signal, and the scenery was spectacular.
David Harewood
I try to wear a watch all the time, because I think guys get the short end of the stick when it comes to jewelry and accessories. A watch is a very chic men’s item, and you’re sort of wasting it if you just look at your cell phone.
Derek Blasberg
I know a lot of people love applications on their phone, but I’m like, ‘Yeah, I understand the nice experience, but there’s something about it that doesn’t flow well.’ Opening an app, closing it, moving to something else. There’s something about the open web that’s very free flowing.
Ben Huh
I use my cell phone as much as I can – I talk to friends all the time. I’m like 2,000 hours a month. It’s crazy.
Lisa Loeb
For me, pointing and clicking my phone is absolutely fine. People say that isn’t the art of photography but I don’t agree.
Annie Lennox
Our generation, unfortunately, is stuck to our phones – and, like, Twitter – constantly, which I have no problem with. I’d say we’re not describing the children of America or anything like that, but there is something to take from it: It is kind of sad how we can’t go thirty minutes without checking our phone.
Israel Broussard
So many actors are lively-minded, creative people who just tread water in this awful way, waiting for the phone to ring and doing their hair for auditions. It feels like a bit of a dreamer’s life – as opposed to a sensible ventriloquist’s life.
Nina Conti
If you’re a Firefox user, you get accustomed to your history and the URL bar and finding things. That should be available on your mobile phone as well.
Mitchell Baker
You used to be able to just call people. You didn’t have to be on someone’s calendar to have a phone conversation. The telephone was an important and valuable domain of communication, both for casual, friendly chats and for professional exchanges of ideas and information. But no more.
Dan Pallotta
Armed with nothing more than a Facebook user’s phone number and home address, anyone with an Internet connection and a few dollars can obtain personal information they should never have access to, including a user’s date of birth, e-mail address, or estimated income.
Al Franken
When I was a kid trying to communicate with family in the Soviet Union, it was very difficult. You had to go through the long-distance phone companies like MCI, which were difficult to navigate and expensive to make calls through.
Jan Koum
For me, the brand of the camera is not the most important thing. I think you can take good pictures with the camera on your phone.
Anja Niedringhaus
We initially targeted pager networks, which have been suffering for the last decade due to cell phone sales.
David Rose
An elaborate system of etiquette and social standards flowered around the home phone: how long a child might be allowed to stay on the phone, how late one could call without being impolite, and of course, the dread implications of a late night call which violated that norm.
John Battelle
In the pre-production process, I am emailing with the actors or jumping on the phone, and we’re sort of figuring out who the characters are and trying to build the relationship dynamic and things like that. Then, also, I am outlining.
Joe Swanberg
Unfortunately, everything we do, somebody is going to have a cell phone. And you’ve got to be careful.
Monty Williams
I use the traditional phone noise that’s built into iOS. I like an actual ringing sound.
Steve Huffman
To be happy in this world, first you need a cell phone and then you need an airplane. Then you’re truly wireless.
Ted Turner
I don’t want to be a grumpy old man or too pessimistic, because if I have a chance, I would prefer to watch a film in the cinema with an audience on a big screen instead of watching it on a cell phone. It’s a very different experience, but somehow I think this form will have its own future and life.
Wong Kar-wai
Now we’re e-mailing and tweeting and texting so much, a phone call comes as a fresh surprise. I get text messages on my cell phone all day long, and it warbles to alert me that someone has sent me a message on Facebook or a reply or direct message on Twitter, but it rarely ever rings.
Susan Orlean
I love a Hebrew National hot dog with an ice-cold Corona – no lime. If the phone rings, I won’t answer until I’m done.
Maya Angelou
I think the American public can accept the fact if you tell them that every time you pick up the phone it’s going to be recorded and it goes to the government. I think the public can understand that.
Raymond Kelly
I once joked in a book that there are three things you can’t do in life. You can’t beat the phone company, you can’t make a waiter see you until he is ready to see you, and you can’t go home again. Since the spring of 1995, I have been quietly, even gamely, reassessing point number three.
Bill Bryson
I do go back to Russia frequently, about twice a year. I hate the flight, but it’s worth it. My parents have a home in a little village of 12 houses. It’s not on any map, so unless you know it’s there, you won’t find it. Nothing works there; no Internet, no cell phone, and the land line only works sometimes. It’s great!
Olesya Rulin
What do you remember about Jason Robinson? His feet. Not how improved he was under a high ball or his kicking skills. Everyone remembers those feet. He could go round you in a phone box.
Brian O’Driscoll
There’s something different about looking someone in the eyes and doing something dishonest to doing it over the phone or screen.
Justin Welby
If you have a billion people running a phone in every corner of their lives, and all these third-party apps and all these countries and all these languages, there are going to be issues.
Craig Federighi
Phone networks can capture life on our planet.
Carlo Ratti
We’re visual creatures. Probably, when we were hunter gatherers… that was the kind of thing that mattered. And remembering, say, phone numbers was, like, not that important when you’re hunting down a mastodon or whatever.
Joshua Foer
So I just got on the phone and the engineer just patched me in and I did reports. I’d get a community leader and bring him to the phone, call up the station and do an interview over the phone with the guy.
Ed Bradley
These days, children can text on their cell phone all night long, and no one else is seeing that phone. You don’t know who is calling that child.
Kamala Harris
If you are lucky enough to have a parent or two alive on this planet, call them. Don’t text; don’t e-mail. Call them on the phone.
J. K. Simmons
I dress like a boy most of the time because I like what’s comfortable, so sometimes when I have to wear dresses and makeup, it’s kind of comedic. I take lots of pictures on my cell phone: ‘Look, I’m dressed like a girl! Surprise!’
Analeigh Tipton
