I do strive to find projects that are trying to carve out some new space. I enjoy projects that leap away from the crowd a little bit.
Emily Blunt
I really love doing indie projects, I think the characters that are available in indie games especially, like a lot of the indie games I’ve done, have been really rich interesting characters for someone of my vocal range.
Ashly Burch
For me photography is just a way to collect material to realize the ideas in my mind. I get inspired by things around me in my daily life and all kinds of things I see. Every new project is a new challenge and my goal is to realize them as realistic as possible.
Erik Johansson
But I did on projects that I produced, that I directed, that I acted in because it was important. I want to be a filmmaker. I don’t want to be an actor who directs, I want to be a director. I want to be a filmmaker. So that’s a big difference.
Eriq La Salle
Each project changes you a bit.
Kit Harington
World peace is one project that we have to do together.
Yoko Ono
I think there are lots of reasons to take projects. Being scared about one is always good.
Genevieve O’Reilly
For me to get to work with a writer-director over time in developing a project – my investment feels much more profound. I know that whatever is on the other end I’m going to feel that much closer to.
Maggie Siff
I really don’t look at myself as just one thing. I’m kind of scattered and like to have my hands in a lot of different projects. It makes me who I am.
Jessica Simpson
With documentary-film projects, you hope you highlight an area of concern people haven’t thought about before. A lot of times, I’m asking myself – ‘This seems to be a significant problem. What can be done that hasn’t been done?’
Paul Allen
The constraints of melodrama can be a great blessing, because they demand that all the characters involved – as absurd and extreme as they may initially seem – must stay utterly rooted in their own reality, or the whole project collapses.
Stanley Tucci
Disney became hated. It became one of the evil corporations. It used to be loved. They couldn’t hold onto talent; they couldn’t attract talent. Some of their products did badly. The Californialand project was a $5 billion waste of money. They couldn’t make it work. The magic had gone, no pun intended.
Simon Sinek
We ourselves are co-called non-linear dynamical systems… I don’t feel quite so pathetic when I interrupt a project to check on some obscure web site or newsgroup or derive an iota of cheer by getting rid of pocketful of change.
John Allen Paulos
When Chuck House wanted to develop the oscilloscope for HP, David Packard told him to abandon the project. Chuck went on “vacation” and came back with $2 million in orders. Packard later gave him an award inscribed with an accolade for “extraordinary contempt and defiance beyond the normal call of engineering.”
Bob Sutton
You need to decide what problems, what opportunities, what projects you’re going to work on.
Fred L. Turner
Creating a city for successful aging involves incorporating age friendly values into everything we do – every plan, every project, every design. I’m excited to be leading Honolulu in this effort, and I believe that it will be one of the most rewarding things I do as Mayor.
Kirk Caldwell
I’m just a huge fan of Joe Carnahan. He’s such a charismatic individual and somebody that just applies every part of himself to the project he’s in.
Ryan Reynolds
Delayed energy projects and regulatory hurdles to domestic oil production not only cost the United States economy billions of dollars and millions of jobs, but they also stand in the way of an elusive goal: true American energy security.
John Hoeven
Even when you have skilled, motivated, hard-working people, the wrong team structure can undercut their efforts instead of catapulting them to success. A poor team structure can increase development time, reduce quality, damage morale, increase turnover, and ultimately lead to project cancellation.
Steve McConnell
Profit in business comes from repeat customers, customers that boast about your project or service, and that bring friends with them.

Zaha Hadid
I always feel a bit vulnerable when I begin a new project, especially when I am playing a character with either a troubled past or unique personality.
Jake T. Austin
Oblivion is something unique, an entertainment experience unlike anything I had seen before. I decided this was a project I really wanted to work on creatively, and I hope fans of the game enjoy the results.
Sean Bean
I’m interested not just in projects that I’ll be starring in, but producing film and TV that’s really quality and great for adults; and when I say great for adults, it doesn’t mean without humor, because I’m also interested in doing comedy.
Lance Reddick
To write a novel is to embark on a quest that is very romantic. People have visions, and the next step is to execute them. That’s a very romantic project. Like Edvard Munch’s strange dreamlike canvases where people are stylized, like ‘The Scream.’ Munch must have had that vision in a dream, he never saw it.
Joyce Carol Oates
Ask a kid who’s struggling in math if he likes being in a mixed-level class, and he’ll tell you he feels like a moron. Ask the math genius if he likes being in a mixed-level class, and he’ll tell you he’s sick of doing all the work during group projects. Sometimes, it’s better to sort like with like.
Jodi Picoult
I always listen to a lot of different music when I am working on a project.
Bill Wyman
I’m my own worst enemy sometimes when I pick projects.
Kim Basinger
If we’re honest with ourselves, our user experience hadn’t kept up with the competition. In the first ten years eBay created the market. Now we’re positioning ourselves to innovate off our core platform. This is not a project. We’re never done.
John Donahoe
‘Adult Swim’ on the Cartoon Network is unbelievable. And ‘South Park’ continues to do great stuff. And ‘Family Guy’ and the various other Seth MacFarlane projects are amazing.
Matt Groening
Just remember, the language of gesture is more effective than the spoken word. Body language is very powerful. Bring the balance within you and project that balance.
Harbhajan Singh Yogi
It’s always fun to be able to have a voice, because it helps me to stay in tune with the project and the people that I am working with. Ther’s nothing worse than being on a project and not being able to have a voice. I don’t like that.
Martin Lawrence
Some software is actually pretty good, by any standard. Think of the Mars Rovers, Google, and the Human Genome Project. Now, that’s quality software!
Bjarne Stroustrup
When you are developing something, you have to look at it individually. You can’t compare and contrast it to the projects around it, because that way madness lies.
Bryan Fuller
The pressure to be pretty? I set, you know, boundaries and goals for myself. I try not to compare myself to anyone else because I will never be anyone else except myself. So I try and stay true to me, and hopefully the right projects will come my way.
Elisha Cuthbert
I find that the projects I enjoy signing up to at the moment are with a director who’s interested in the script – isn’t completely sure what the movie is and isn’t concerned about it. He’s just interested in going on the journey and discovering it.
Brie Larson
We have 24 states where Republicans run both of them. But in terms of a liberal project that people feel they can sign on to, that feels that it speaks to everyone in the country, that speaks to what we share and the principles we hold, Republicans have developed a message for all of that, you know?
Steve Inskeep
There’s something to be said for failing. It’s not the failure you feel, it’s the failure that people project when something disappoints. You’re back to ground zero, where there’s no expectations, and that’s where I like to be.
Kevin Smith
Amid a multitude of projects, no plan is devised.
Publilius Syrus
As an actor, you generally don’t get to choose what projects you are part of, so I’ve been very fortunate that The Book of Mormon was something I got to be part of. I don’t want to be lofty, but it was groundbreaking, in many ways, for musical theater, so that was really thrilling to be part of.
Andrew Rannells
What can possibly be the common factor in a Kim Jee-woon film? I think what really ties a lot of my projects together is that there is always a character that believes his life is not exactly the way he wishes it to be.
Kim Jee-woon
Music does have a very special place in my heart. I enjoy it very much. I suppose it is my first love and I do a lot of it. It seems to be when you are making a project it inspires you sometimes to jot down something that you think fits the situation.
Clint Eastwood
What makes the meaning of life is people, so you try to be good to people immediately around you and in your broader community. So a lot of my projects are about how I can affect the world in the hundreds of millions.
Reid Hoffman
If you’re not willing to have somebody hauled off at gunpoint over the project, then it’s probably not a legitimate concern of the state.
Kevin D. Williamson
Ever since I left Greece more than two decades ago, it has been my dream to return and perform at the Acropolis. This project took more than a year and a half to plan and accomplish, and I would like to thank my band and crew and the scores of people involved in helping my dream become a reality.
Yanni
What surprises me most in architecture, as in other techniques, is that a project has one life in its built state but another in its written or drawn state.
Aldo Rossi
As a producer, I want to back projects, talents, and scripts that speak to me not just as someone from the industry, but as an audience.
Anushka Sharma
As a writer who has collaborated on projects, you give your life over to that project.
Winnie Holzman
Nothing is impossible in this world. Firm determination, it is said, can move heaven and earth. Things appear far beyond one’s power, because one cannot set his heart on any arduous project due to want of strong will.
Yamamoto Tsunetomo
My rule was I will not answer a question that attempts to project how I will rule in a case that might come before the court.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg
There are times over different projects when I’ve asked the writers why people are swearing for no good reason. I tell them that it would be funnier if there weren’t these swear words.
John Ratzenberger
I’ve just always loved really good projects. The things that draw me into a new project have very little to do with genre and have more to do with the characters I’ll be playing, the people I’ll get to work with and things like that.
Jewel Staite
I’m always sort of looking for projects that I can sort of put out into the world, into the public sphere, and to somehow cause an effect. I want to be able to create projects that sort of are going to make people think and think in this sort of magical, sort of fantastical way.
Nick Cave
Anyone who writes knows that ultimately the majority of your time is spent alone in a room with a piano or a guitar, no matter what the project is.
Trey Anastasio
I’d already started directing short films when we were doing ‘Lord of the Rings,’ then videogame projects. So Peter’s known that I’ve been heading towards directing for a long time. But I always thought my first outing would be a couple of people and a digital camera in the back streets of London somewhere!
Andy Serkis
China does not play by the rules; they do not respect the rules. They develop projects that are not feasible, leaving countries with huge debt that cannot be paid back and use that as financial leverage.
Nayib Bukele
In 1968, the situation at Harvard was not one of which we can be proud. In that year, the proportion of minority persons in salary and wage positions was approximately 3 per cent. Virtually no minority workers were employed on Harvard construction projects.
Derek Bok
I appreciate the additional additives and preservatives that help sell a project, but I’m sticking to what works best for me. I gotta sell the album live on stage and make people believe in the songs.
Busta Rhymes
I hibernate. I hibernate until the next project takes shape in my mind.
Paolo Sorrentino
Having one foot in design and the other in sustainable and social projects, I hear this question quite often: ‘Why does the world need another chair?’ My answer is that the world needs another chair/bicycle/car or any new product for that matter, like the world needs another book.
Yves Behar
The reason I like doing these acting projects is because no matter how much acting I do, I’ll always have music in my life. I love having both.
Tyler Hilton
I was always doing something physical. My brothers and I used to have handstand contests. We’d walk around the projects on our hands and see who could get the farthest. I was always playing football with them, basketball or racing in the street.
Florence Griffith Joyner
Do you want to be an actor, or do you want to be a celebrity? I made that decision when I went to Juilliard. I wanted to be an actor. So, if I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I’m going to do that.
Anthony Mackie
I float from one project to another project, so you miss people and you don’t see them for years.
Ciaran Hinds
The ‘clean energy’ challenge deserves a commitment akin to the Manhattan project or the Apollo moon landing.
Martin Rees
Most of the auditions I went on, I passed up the projects because I just wasn’t interested. When I read A Knight’s Tale, that was that. I knew I wanted to do this movie.
Shannyn Sossamon
I knew there were all kinds of interesting things going on at Google, but now that I’ve seen them, my mind has been blown – in a great way. They have all these amazing projects and people that the world doesn’t know anything about. I’m like a kid in a candy store – it’s an idea factory.
Tony Fadell
I’m involved with projects that strike up a passion with me, that stir up completion inside of me. People come at me and go, ‘My job makes me feel alive.’ OK, well, good for you. My job doesn’t make me feel ‘alive,’ my job makes me feel alive!
Paul Heyman
Every new thing you make will be (should be) the nicest thing you’ve made so far, because you’re learning and getting better with each and every new project.
Jessica Hische
A model needs to know how to project herself into the camera.
China Machado
I’m a Sufi Muslim, I would say. I believe in using the medium to create a good vibration because art is so important to society. Some projects I don’t do because I feel that it’s going to create a bad vibe. I don’t do propaganda films that are anti another religion, anti-Muslim or anti-Hindu.
A. R. Rahman
No doubt we have to have bigger projects, bigger industries, basic industries, but it is a matter of the highest importance that we look to the common man, the weakest element in the society.
Lal Bahadur Shastri
My favorite project is always the next one.
Michael Graves
I pretty much only write by default, because I want to make certain projects so instead of trying to wait and find them, I create them, but I’m not really a writer.
Sara Gilbert
We’ve got to make sure that our economy is strong at home so that we can project military power overseas.
Barack Obama
Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s career is kind of how I want to create my career. He’s very involved with his recording and production company and also worked on some really great projects.
Ross Butler
I’m not saying they won’t be bigger projects someday.
Stanley Tucci
Project X now, but it started as a Hunger Game.
Joe Budden
Normally, in anything I do, I’m fairly miserable. I do it, and I get grumpy because there is a huge, vast gulf, this aching disparity, between the platonic ideal of the project that was living in my head, and the small, sad, wizened, shaking, squeaking thing that I actually produce.
Neil Gaiman
Working on new projects gives you the opportunity to learn and absorb new things.
Michelle Ryan
I don’t take on projects that are a hassle or when someone comes in and says, ‘We really need this design,’ and I’m like, ‘OK, fine, I’ll do it.’ It really has to be something that I personally feel intrigued and excited about – any product, as long as I’m excited by it. It doesn’t have to be a car.
Henrik Fisker
See your enemies, not as God’s failures, but as God’s projects.
Max Lucado
The people I’m working with tend to be people I know, who are my friends, and I like hanging out with them. There’s nothing better than making a long-term project with your friends. It’s just dreamy.
Tilda Swinton
I have done so many stupid commercials and terrible other little projects that never went anywhere and just ended up being terrible.
Rob Huebel
Fifteen minutes later, a meeting was called. “Okay, look.” Deb’s face was dead serious. “I know I just joined this project, and I don’t want to offend anyone. But I’m going to be honest. I think you’ve been going about this all wrong.” “I’m offended,” Dave told her flatly.
Sarah Dessen
I’m not saying Sonic Youth was a conceptual-art project for me, but in a way it was an extension of Warhol. Instead of making criticism about popular culture, as a lot of artists do, I worked within it to do something.
Kim Gordon
Often we’re recreating what we think we’re supposed to be as human beings. What we’ve been told we’re supposed to be, instead of who we authentically are. The key about the creation of full self-expression is to be authentically who you are, to project that.
James Cromwell
Cisco projects that in 2020, now just five years away, there will be seven billion people on the earth and 50 billion devices connected to the Internet. Six-and-a-half devices on average per person. As a father of five young adults and teenagers, I think we are – in my household, we’ve exceeded the 6.5 number.
James Comey
Where the despair of loneliness and poverty haunts every hour, the optimism to embark on new projects cannot find a place to alight on the brain’s cortex. Poverty itself is an enormous obstacle to an enlightened and enlightening – not to say healthy – old age.
Sherwin B. Nuland
Half-way through any big project, everyone forgets what they’re doing.
J. Michael Straczynski
I think I’m better wired for television. I love variety as far as a project. I’m easily bored and the schedule of a television show, it just keeps you going.
Brad Garrett
Ideally you want to be a couple of months ahead on a project. But I rarely am.
Frank Quitely
Unless somebody who’s already eleven thousand times platinum is like, “We’re ushering this project in,” it’s not really gonna pop commercially.
Pharoahe Monch
You know, I don’t really do that much looking inside me when I’m working on a project. Whatever I am becomes what that film is. But I change; you change.
Steven Spielberg
I won’t quit my day job. I like restaurants. I don’t do a lot of television, either, even though people come to me with projects all the time. I have to spend time in the kitchen.
Wolfgang Puck
George W. Bush is a person who is totally disinterested in the world, uneducated. I’m not saying he’s stupid. I don’t think he’s stupid. He’s crafty as hell, but he projects well on television. And that’s the real big problem. He is the perfect “what, me worry?” president.
Robert Scheer
In matters of the heart as well, a certain level of negativity and suspicion is universally recommended. You may try to project a thoroughly positive outlook in order to attract a potential boyfriend, but you are also advised to Google him.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Basketball is what got me out of the projects. It got my momma the house she never had, the car she never had. Nobody is going to get the best of me. You might score more points than me, but you’re going to know you were in a dogfight.
Kenyon Martin
You can be as creative as you want to and build all these cool projects, but ultimately, if they’re not successful and you don’t have the business structure in place, everything will flop.
Coy Bowles
I really realized how much happier I am when I’m doing projects that I’m chosen to do, and on the flip side, how much unhappier I am on projects that make me feel uncomfortable.
Jonathan Tucker
When you have a passion for something the hours, days, months and years that it takes to complete the project becomes secondary because you’re working on something that you love.
One9
Most times with vanity projects, publishers don’t believe in the work; they just believe in the name.
Gerard Way
Agribusiness could provide an opportunity for joint Israeli-Palestinian projects, spurred on by Israeli technical expertise in this field.
Edgar Bronfman, Sr.
After Psychonauts went on to be very, very popular in Europe, I got busy with my next big project: being unemployed.
Erik Wolpaw
I would never sign on to a project that was male-bashing, because first and foremost I’m a man… what guy would sign on for that?
Michael Ealy
I do find it sometimes that people project their own feelings on to the characters and I think that there is a certain amount of sexism – I mean the proprietary nature, for men and women.
Matthew Weiner
We as visual artists need to continue to be renegades and say, “Yes I am here to do a project, but what is the social service?”
Nick Cave
In the future, I will make certain that I commit to projects so there’s enough breathing space for me to have an emotional life.
Twyla Tharp
Drama is my sweet spot, but the thing about being an actor is that you want to do a variety of things. I definitely love fantasy and would want to be in a fantasy project.
Lupita Nyong’o
I like to do projects that are off-the-wall and on top-of-the-wall.
Meital Dohan
My dad’s nickname was MacGyver when we were kids. He’d hijack my projects all the time. When I got older, he would not do it as much… but he would just end up hijacking the whole thing. You should see the look in his eyes when he gets to create stuff.
Lucas Till
Major differences in projects happen due to budget, director’s styles, and genre of script, not industry.
Tena Desae
The Way is not a religion: Christianity is the end of religion. ‘Religion’ means here the division between sacred and secular concerns, other-worldliness, man’s reaching toward God in a way which projects his own thoughts.
David Edward Kirk
I am hands-on in any project that I am associated with. I just don’t want to put my face or name and lend it to a product that I’m not behind a hundred percent.
Kim Kardashian
I’m just thinking of 2001, which I think is the most expensive independent film ever made – which is great, someday I hope I will do one. But I know the parameters when I got onto this project – I have to take care of everyone, make sure that they are all on board, and this process interests me.
Michel Gondry
Every time you work on a project, it’s a little vacation from the project you’re working on the other 23 hours. That’s the thing – it replenishes you to do something else.
Joss Whedon
Our goal is to leverage what is already out in the field in terms of partners, but then hire in project management capability and a bit of technical capability.
Kevin B. Rollins
My husband has no desire to work with me; don’t get it twisted. He gets paid a lot of money to write giant movies. He’s not into humoring me with my projects. But, that being said, I did have the story credit on ‘Blades of Glory,’ and writing is something that I’ve always been interested in pursuing more.
Busy Philipps
I’m especially interested in projects from authors who were always wonderful writers but who got stuck in the midlist mire due to the challenges of traditional publishing.
Teresa Medeiros
It seems that soccer tournaments create those relationships: people gathered together in pubs and living rooms, a whole country suddenly caring about the same event. A World Cup is the sort of common project that otherwise barely exists in modern societies.
Simon Kuper
I begin by imagining an artwork verbally. I try to describe in writing what the project is, what it is trying to do. I need to understand the artwork without giving it a specific materiality or solid form.
Maya Lin
The founders of a new colony, whatever Utopia of human virtue and happiness they might originally project, have invariably recognized it among their earliest practical necessities to allot a portion of the virgin soil as a cemetery, and another portion as the site of a prison.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
The Kindle is the most successful electronic book-reading tablet so far, but that’s not saying much; Silicon Valley is littered with the corpses of e-book reader projects.
David Pogue
I like to work as much as I can, but I only really have the hiatus to work on other projects. I’ve kept myself busy recently. I voiced a character in ‘Ice Age 4,’ which was a lot of fun. I also did another small movie called ‘The Scribbler.’
Kunal Nayyar
Create some psychological space between you and your project by imagining you’re doing it for someone else or contemplating what advice you’d give to another person in your predicament.
Daniel H. Pink
The role of the painter . . . is to project that which sees itself in him.
Max Ernst
We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam constructions, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of previously settled land.
David Foreman
The world of entertainment is built for big money. It’s not built for small-scale projects that sustain themselves.
Chris Gethard
Most of black America is in housing projects, without jobs, living on welfare. And this is not the case in ‘The Cosby Show,’ because all the values in that household are strictly what I would call white American values.
August Wilson
When a new project comes along, I want to know that the experience is going to be challenging and exciting. Part of me is going to be drawn to doing something new and also the satisfaction of intellectual curiosity.
Tom Hiddleston
Haji Ali taught me to share three cups of tea, to slow down and make building relationships as important as building projects. He taught me that I had more to learn from the people I work with than I could ever hope to teach them.
Greg Mortenson
There’s some downsides to being famous, which are not even worth mentioning. But to combat the bad sides of being famous, you really should take advantage of the good sides. The good sides are, you can use that fame to get projects you might not normally get.
Chris Rock
The most common reason that I turn down a film project is because of my schedule. If I can’t devote the time to a score that it deserves, I’ll pass. I’ll also turn down a film if its moral position is different than what my own understanding of right and wrong.
John Keltonic
Just enough sense to stick with something-a chore, task, project, until its completed pays off much better than idle intelligence, even if idle intelligence be of genius caliber.
David J. Schwartz
We measure our success of love in the images of love. But those images are static. And it’s a hopeless project, because our love will never be like that image. The actual reality of love in our lives is much more chaotic.
Pernille Fischer Christensen
Not using fly ash in our highways would just be a plain waste of taxpayers’ money, which I find unacceptable. Most people don’t realize that without fly ash, many of Montana’s infrastructure projects simply would not have been possible – like the Hungry Horse Dam near Glacier National Park.
Matt Rosendale
Who really can face the future? All you can do is project from the past, even when the past shows that such projections are often wrong. And who really can forget the past? What else is there to know?
Robert M. Pirsig
Honestly, I look at the project and I look at the people attached and I look at the director. If it’s a role that I feel will help me, as an actor, then I’ll definitely take it.
Sasha Grey
Architects are pretty much high-class whores. We can turn down projects the way they can turn down some clients, but we’ve both got to say yes to someone if we want to stay in business.
Philip Johnson
I’m interested in how we define things by how we choose to observe them, and how everywhere in our lives, and in every moment we experience, there are forces at work that we don’t fully understand. Couple this curiosity with a love of portraiture painting, and that’s how this project was born.
Oliver Jeffers
Before ‘Twilight’ was greenlit, I had four projects at four studios. I worked super-hard on all of them, but ‘Twilight’ was greenlit first.
Catherine Hardwicke
A lot of times I pick passion projects but at the end of the day, I don’t think much of what’s going to work, I want to think about how it feels to do the work.
Eric Roberson
Naval dominance of European waters was the largest, longest, most complex and expensive project ever undertaken by the British state and society.
Nicholas Rodger
You could do a hundred projects and still not have the fans that are there for Twilight.
Kellan Lutz
I’ve had a great run with great projects. I love the film industry. It keeps you young; it really does.
Kellan Lutz
I’ve always worked on all different types of music, some with specific project goals and deadlines and some not. Sometimes I would write a piece of music that is almost like a film score or weird electro pieces, wherever the muse took me, and I still do that.
Serj Tankian
I’ve got my foot in ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and my heart is there in a lot of ways, but I’m really pushing myself to do these new projects. It’s scary as hell, but it’s fun to have other things to keep my creative brain cooking.
Paula Pell
To be honest, producing records interests me less at the moment and I really don’t want to get involved in album projects that are going to take up a lot of time
Phil Collins
Marketing is what gets you noticed, and that side of it something – this side of it, if you like, doing interviews – is the side of it that I least enjoy, and yet is 50% of the project.
Rowan Atkinson
I want to pick good projects, I want to work with great directors and try not to put too much pressure on myself and just read things for the story and recognize when I’m drawn to something for the right reasons and try to maintain some sanity. Sanity would be good. I’d like to have a little sanity!
Rachel McAdams
At our company, our Design and Construction Consulting Service Team not only helps eliminate the risks inherent in the construction process, they typically save our clients 5% – 10% on overall construction costs. They also help make sure projects come in on time.
Roger Staubach
I love the fans of genre. Genre fans are the best fans. They’re loyal, they’re dedicated, and they’re passionate about the projects. They get it on a cerebral level. Being a part of that culture and that world… It’s very gratifying and very fulfilling.
Julie Benz
I was never really cut out to be a student, I prefer to actually work and get a project done and learn that way- but I have a huge respect for good teachers and even enjoy teaching…I am a conundrum!
Holly Golightly
The sunset looks beautiful over the projects…
What a shame, it ain’t the same where we stand at.
If you look close, you can see the bricks chipped off.
Sometimes niggas miss when they lick off.
Prodigy
I really want to do something in Europe. With a small movie, it can be an interesting challenge. But I have to get the right project. I don’t think it’s so important to go to Hollywood. All that trash that comes out of there! I don’t want to do that.
Zhang Ziyi
I love all the old pictures – of spanking and Bettie Page and corsets. But you can’t do spanking in fashion, so I wanted to do a project where I could really let go and get girls who also love those things.
Ellen von Unwerth
Generally, I like people’s trunk projects, the things they were working on before anyone knew who they were. I think when people run out of their trunk items and they start doing stuff just to do a film next year, the quality goes down, the interest goes down. Maybe it feels commercial or something.
Whit Stillman
I enjoy being given a certain amount of freedom in order to interpret or to come up with stuff, but I do enjoy collaboration. I seek and thrive on projects where I am going to learn from the people I’m working with.
William Kempe
My ultimate life dream project is my kids. My family.
Denzel Washington
I’m a movement Nazi. It used to be my way before. Now, in the last three projects. I found a way to let the actors find their comfort and still find the precision in the show. It’s a change in me.
Guillermo del Toro
The problem with being a writer/director: unless you’re really disciplined, you start adding projects, and you have to make time to make them. Because you have to write them… no one else is writing them for me.
Cary Fukunaga
I have to say that I approach every project with the same energy. I also think that, since I started producing, I see the process from a different perspective, which affects the way I jump on board immediately.
Olivia Wilde
I have a really small rear-view mirror in my life. I look at the rear-view mirror for memories and learning experiences, but I’ve got a big front windshield and I’m looking at right now. I’ve got so many projects on my plate.
Pat Croce
I’ve found that sitting around and obsessing about projects moving forward, when there’s actually nothing I can do about it, at a certain point, is really counter-productive.
Danny Strong
No matter how many scores I’ve written, the next project will hopefully be completely different. As hard as it is, I’m always trying to stay fresh, not repeat myself, and come up with original musical ideas and ways of scoring.
John Keltonic
I need to decide whether to apply for college or delay it for a couple of years while I pursue some more acting projects. Right now I’m trying to sort things out, so I can make the right choices.
Lacey Chabert
Stand up straight. If you stand up straight, you will instantly feel better about yourself, and you will project a better image to the world, one that says you don’t feel like you have to be hunched over and closed off.
Chris Hardwick
I don’t consciously seek out Australian projects. I put them on the same table as all the other scripts and I wouldn’t ever do a film just because it’s been shot at home.
Eric Bana
I am a conservative Republican, a firm believer in free market capitalism. A free market system allows all parties to compete, which ensures the best and most competitive project emerges, and ensures a fair, democratic process.
Sarah Palin
When I first started writing, I had a very difficult time switching between projects, but now it’s not only second-nature, it’s indispensable: If I stall on one project, I can switch to another and stay productive.
Marc Guggenheim
Beyond its entertainment value, ‘Baywatch’ has enriched and, in many cases, helped save lives. I’m looking forward to the opportunity to continue with a project which has had such a significance for so many.
David Hasselhoff
Our hope is to support projects that promote theВ personal and educational development of young peopleВ through creative programs thatВ embrace innovation while celebrating rich traditions and cultural exchange
Elisa Sednaoui
In my career, there have been roles I haven’t taken because someone involved with the project gave me a bad vibe. I don’t care how much money is on the table: No job is worth feeling uneasy every day.
Gabrielle Union
I simply constructed a project to try to snap Kurt [Cobain] out of a frame of mind. I sent him a plane ticket and a driver, and he tacked the plane ticket to the wall in the bedroom and the driver sat outside the house for 10 hours. Kurt wouldn’t come out and wouldn’t answer the phone.
Michael Stipe
All of my projects are done right because I know the game, and I consider myself a rap expert.
Shaquille O’Neal
During the time I was on The Hardy Boys, I was also watching other people’s careers. I thought the next step was to be a movie star. I kept saying no to projects, and offers stopped coming in. I was no longer hot
Parker Stevenson
I hate the idea of repeating myself. I need new perspectives and challenges for each project, and I’m very happy that many people are able to follow me without any problem.
Christian Fennesz
For me, the most gratifying projects are ones that have the potential to bring people together – to overcome differences among various groups, and to spark dialogue.
Nancy Kates
I actually have very girly taste in television. I like a chicky relationship show probably more than anything. I really like ‘Project Runway’.
David Nevins
Sponsors, corporate endowments, and the heritage of the big fortunes would take care of financing cultural projects when American society was homogeneous. Now it’s too complex, it’s a mix. Different cultures in collision. I think it starts to be necessary to have a government institution to deal with cultural affairs.
Gilberto Gil
The ontological concept of truth is in the centre of a logic which may serve as a model of pre- technological rationality. It is the rationality of a two-dimensional universe of discourse which, contrasts with the of thought and behavior that develop in the execution of the technological project.
Herbert Marcuse
We have good joint projects in the helicopter and aircraft manufacturing industry. We are considering cooperation and are actively cooperating in space. There are good prospects there [with China].
Vladimir Putin
When I`m going to do a Christmas album I had to put my mind in Christmas mode. I had to go back to being a child and remembering all of that. When I go to do a project, I’m serious about it, so I wrap my world around it, and it becomes Christmastime for me and I’m singing songs like it’s Christmas day.
Mary J. Blige
I need to find those projects more often: the ones that really, really speak to me. I do better work in those situations and have a better time.
Andre Holland
My favourite book as a child was an old ‘Newne’s Children’s Encyclopaedia’ which my grandfather had bought just before World War II and donated to our family after seeing how interested we were in it. Each volume had special chapters called ‘Things Boys can Do.’ My brothers and I would pick out interesting projects.
Barry Marshall
The structure of the company is constantly changing. The composition of the necessary working groups is constantly changing. We have many divisions that are based on the project principle, which means that they are put together for each project.
Mikhail Khodorkovsky
The sin we commit against each other as women is lack of support. We hurt. We hurt each other. We hide. We project. We become mute or duplicitous, and we fester like boiling water until one day we erupt like a geyser. Do we forget we unravel in grief?
Terry Tempest Williams
As audiences, when we are exposed to oral history projects not only do we learn but in some ways we also bear witness to that which we have not experienced personally.
Patricia Leavy
The aim of art is to project an inner vision into the world.
Bruce Lee
I’d been doing projects outdoors for the public. I made pigeons eat geometry by putting bread out in rhomboids and triangles. I don’t know if this activity made sense, but the work was available.
Jenny Holzer
I’ll be totally honest in that I feel tremendously lucky that I am offered incredible jobs all the time to direct, but the problem that I have just personally is that there are only so many years in my life to dedicate to certain projects.
Lake Bell
I’m certainly grateful that there were projects that I did that people responded to. It would be a nightmare if it were the other way around. But it’s sometimes a little disheartening.
Christian Slater
I realized that people don’t quite understand what I do when I was the new kid on the block and a lot of Hollywood was offering me fairly cheesy projects.
DJ Shadow
Every time I’ve gotten myself into trouble, it’s because I’m choosing a project based on a long-term career goal as opposed to something that speaks to me at the moment.
Ryan Reynolds
I need to thank my director, producers, and artists as well crew members of all my projects.
Hansika Motwani
If something – if you have a good rapport then you’re friends and you’re offered projects together or you discover stories together. Jennifer and I discovered this story together, and it was evident to us we would only do it with each other.
David O. Russell
I’ve been compiling a list of art project ideas for a long time. These are ideas of things I would love to see someday. They range from the practical – jackets with woodstoves in them – to the sublime – images of nuns on waterslides.
Misha Collins
I believe in preparation. As you already know we had to deal with many crews, 2 cameras. Also as I said we had to get many different actors because they tried to tamper with the project. I just liked doing the movie how I envisioned it. I wanted it to be my own.
Tommy Wiseau
My childlike qualities sometimes lead me to jump into projects without thinking of the consequences.
Howie Mandel
I think the only consistent thing is that I like projects that explore different social themes. ‘Our Family Wedding’ is a comedy, but it deals with two different cultures coming together. It’s also about people letting go.
Forest Whitaker
With a project like ‘Teachers Lounge,’ you’re wearing a lot of hats, so it demands hard work and focus if you want to do it right.
Ted Alexandro
There is one recurring, persistent, perennial, and dogging personal problem which, more than any other, steals the force and peace of people and ruins projects and enterprises and careers.В  It is the habit of feeling hurt, because of what others do, or do not do and what they say or do not say
Ervin Seale
All our projects are like fabulous expeditions. The story of each project is unique. Our projects have no precedent.
Christo
At this time, my work on the SPS power supplies had just come to an end; I joined a study group on the pp project and an experimental team studying cooling in a small ring (ICE).
Simon van der Meer
Something that I really enjoy doing is creating and being a part of very different characters and very different projects.
Noel Fisher
Pressure is something you feel when you do not know what you are doing.
Chuck Noll
I’d argue that everybody wants to do something that matters, and the fact that Linux has had a huge impact on the tech market and is used virtually everywhere is obviously very personally satisfying. I think programming is fun, and the community around the kernel is great, but a project has to be relevant too.
Linus Torvalds
I have a strong sense that every project is an invention, which is not a word I hear being used in architecture courses
Thomas Heatherwick
Never had I had so many friends and so much fun as I did in the projects.
Willie Stargell
I still love coming into work everyday after so many years working as an actress. I’ve been working more or less continuously and I find I have to really want to do the project to make it work because you have to put such an enormous amount of effort into it.
Amanda Burton
The more you focus on control, the more likely you’re working on a project that’s striving to deliver something of relatively minor value.
Tom DeMarco
It is not the project but the living process that will be the measure of our actions.
David Holmgren
I try not to think in terms of what poems or poets should do. Most of us appreciate a wide diversity in music, in cooking, in movies, but in our own medium, poetry, we often fail to make allowances for tastes and projects other than our own.
James Arthur
In 2008, we began an initiative to outsource projects from our Israeli office to three companies in the Palestinian Territories.
John T. Chambers
Id love to have another film to go on to. Im in the mood to work. But I have to be patient, you know, to find that particular kind of project. Occasionally Ill write one myself if I can summon up the energy.
Peter Weir
There’s a certain time in the core of making a movie from pre-production to halfway through post-production I don’t read any project, my agent will tell people that “he’s not reading.” And then when I know how the movie’s probably gonna work halfway into post-production, I’ll come along.
Ang Lee
To me, work is not a burden but my main hobby. This is why I always take work with me when I go on holidays. Moreover, that’s when new projects occur to me: while contemplating beautiful landscapes or seascapes.
Mario Bunge
I’m drawn to projects where I play these really complicated characters, but also where I can have some type of influence on affecting what we see as societal norms.
Rami Malek
IBM is helping to greatly advance and expedite quality sampling while providing our project investigators peace of mind that the information they are gathering is securely stored and protected.
H. G. Wells
The band projects just took natural priority. I didn’t really have a solo career, just wanted to share the music in another way and to learn more about writing, recording, etcetera.
Ken Hensley
The revolution will survive. It does not rely solely on oil for its survival. There is a national will, there is a national idea, a national project.
Hugo Chavez
It turns out that we determine who our leaders are by unconscious undertones we all project with our voices – and of which we’re completely unaware.
Nick Morgan
We make a contract within ourselves as actors or directors or writers about how much of ourselves we let into projects. You can actually figure out before you work on something how much blood you will have to let emotionally.
Ajay Naidu
My work is heavily influenced by critiques that many critical intellectual traditions, especially Critical Race Theory, have made of reform projects focused on legal equality.
Dean Spade
It’s so important to create roles and characters and projects that feature black people in a way that’s not specifically targeted towards the niche market, which is, like, a black movie is created, and it’s produced and pitched so that only black people will watch it.
Amandla Stenberg
As part of Depeche Mode, I don’t think it’s right for me to be using my own songs for a solo project. I’m not a very prolific songwriter, so I keep those for Depeche Mode.
Martin Gore
For me, it’s always been very essential to work on projects that one can work on almost for their entire life.
Hans-Ulrich Obrist
All progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw
People offer me loads of stuff, and some of it I like, but I just can’t do it because I can’t write it all. So I might get in the position where I have some sort of company and just write maybe the first episode, but these are love projects, in a way.
Michael Hirst
I just want to keep doing good projects with good people.
Katherine Langford
For film, I think because it’s more detailed, and especially with historical material, you really have to find the right projects. Speaking as a mixed-race woman, there aren’t many historical stories about people like me. When people think of ‘dual heritage,’ they think it’s a modern concept, but really it’s not.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw
I was supremely fortunate to do several projects that I’m really excited about. So within all that, there’s a lot going on this year. I’m excited about 2016.
Mahershala Ali
Legislators are interested in their pet projects, getting re-elected, and popularity contests.
Bud Grant
Are we so desperate for entertainment that we will fall for a Trickless magician?? Saw a woman in half. Pull a rabbit out of a hat. Do something! What tricks does this guy have? “I’m in a box…and I ain’t gonna eat.”. “I’m in a box… and I ain’t gonna eat!!” That ain’t no trick! That’s called living in the projects!
Chris Rock
I’ve seen a lot of friends who have a lot of great projects, whether it’s a script or a play or whatever, and it is a great project and they have great people involved, and they can’t make it.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
Has given me no choice but to advocate for the termination of this project.
Greg Nickels
We were developing an innovative Personal Information Manager called Chandler but a couple years ago I took off from that to do a project writing down my memoirs essentially, reminiscing about the development of the Macintosh.
Andy Hertzfeld
I would like to work in any country in an interesting project. The country is not so important.
Tomas Lemarquis
Children involved in project work are encouraged to serve the group needs and share responsibility for what’s accomplished.
Lilian Katz
They were creating a program on contemplative prayer called Be Still. They asked me to be a part of this project that was designed to help Americans see the importance of spending time before God in stillness. I knew immediately that God wanted me to be a part of the project.
Priscilla Shirer
Of course, it’s hard to support full-time programmers, so we do get funds from a set of companies that are interested in the health of the Mozilla project and so are willing to support the people working for the Foundation as well.
Mitchell Baker
I project myself out through the glasses and across the street, a ghost in the morning sunlight, torn with disembodied lust.
William S. Burroughs
The work is different in the sense that I haven’t had to travel round the world raising money, or work from the genesis of the project. But the collaboration feels clear always, it’s sort of my drug, I’m in it for the conversation. The conversation’s the most important part of it.
Tilda Swinton
It’s not the style that motivates me, as much as an attitude of openness that I have when I go into a project.
Herbie Hancock
I always try to take projects I’m genuinely interested and passionate about versus just trying to take projects for the money.
Michael Dougherty
I have written things that Republicans and Democrats and all kinds of figures have either hated or felt very uncomfortable about. Because in doing these long projects and books, you get close to the bone. And they’re not calling me up and asking me for dinner.
Bob Woodward
‘The Client List’ is my baby. I always tell people, ‘It took nine months to put this project together because it is my baby.’ And, it really did take that long!
Jennifer Love Hewitt
I have half a dozen designers who work for me, they ‘realise’ most of the design work, and I act as the design director and the main point of client contact on each project.
Michael Bierut
During the past two centuries, innovation has more than doubled our life span and given us cheap energy and more food. If we project what the world will be like 10 years from now without continuing innovation in health, energy or food, the picture is dark.
Bill Gates
I undertake the same project as Montaigne, but with an aim contrary to his own: for he wrote his Essays only for others, and I write my reveries only for myself.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
I’ve heard people say that ‘The Blair Witch Project’ is a feminist movie because there’s a woman in charge and I’ve heard it called a completely anti-feminist movie because this woman screws everything up. Who cares really? It’s just a movie.
Heather Donahue
I should like to enflame the whole world with my taste for gardening. There is no virtue that I would not attribute to the man who lives to project and execute gardens.
Michel, 14th Prince of Ligne
Of all the projects I’ve worked on, I’ve never worked with another director like Billy Friedkin. I think he’s a genius.
Linda Blair
I think it is important to be present in the places where you are working. It is not only about doing a project, but following the project through its construction.
Santiago Calatrava
Most startups are not just built for the person who is using them. When you do that, every now and then you get really lucky and… are representative of some huge class of people who all want the same thing you do… but very often that just turns into a side project that doesn’t go anywhere.
Emmett Shear
I grew up playing with kids from Hurt Village, playing with kids from other housing projects, Lamar Terrace, because my grandmother lived in that particular area. So, I always wondered how I would have turned out if I would have lived in that particular given circumstance.
Katori Hall
I have no idea. I get involved because I think there’s value in the project and because I love the character that is presented to me. I love the opportunity to examine a character, and to have him examine me, live inside me and move my hands. I love that. It’s irresistible. It’s a drug.
Donald Sutherland
I’m for sure a workaholic. I’m a complete control freak and I take on way too many projects.
Janet Evanovich
The good thing about the European Union is that the joint project ultimately benefits all Member States and not just a few.
Jean-Claude Juncker
People just project their idea of my character on to me and they just seem to assume that I’m the same, when in reality I’m not.
Robert Pattinson
They’re not gong to give Hateful Eight its credit now, they’ll give it its credit later. Hateful Eight was too long. I think we’ve indulged Quentin [Tarantino] so much with his monologues. Quentin has this very strong cult following around him and his projects, and people are always expecting so much from him.
Bun B
I got the job [in Moana project] about six months before we started rehearsals. No, seven and a half months before we started at the Public, and so, it’s been my ocean of calm throughout the Hamilton phenomenon.
Lin-Manuel Miranda
I’ve been saying for almost 20 years that I need to do a jazz project and it ought to be either big band or I should do some jazz songs with a trio or quartet.
Al Jarreau
The 20th Century was a bloodbath, and for all the frustrations and failures of the project to unify Europe, the last five decades have been periods of unprecedented peace, growth, and prosperity in Europe.
Barack Obama
It hasn’t really made it easier getting film work. It’s not like I can call up a studio or a producer and say – insert haughty voice here – ‘It’s Parker. I guess you might know me as the indie queen. I’m wondering if you have any projects for me to be in.’
Parker Posey
I grew up in the projects with four older brothers. And there were tough, macho gangsters, drug dealers, killers, and thugs all in my neighborhood. And they were afraid of my mother. So, yeah, I know some strong women.
Michael Che
Everybody these days wants to be a star, including myself. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a chef but you want to market yourself and your projects.
Geoffrey Zakarian
My M.O. as far as choosing projects is I really try not to work. I try to not do the scripts that are offered me. I’m in this wonderful position to be able to do that.
Jeff Bridges
In my district, the budget scales back and eliminates several long-term shore protection projects important to the safety and economic security of Long Island.
Tim Bishop
I was hired to do this one great script called ‘Cap’n Ricky’ and that project is up in the air at the moment.
David Wain
We’ve run out of good projects. This is not a money issue… If these oil companies had fantastic projects, they’d be out there [developing new fields].
Matthew Simmons
I love to get involved with projects that take me out of my comfort zone. I try to do things that are not necessarily what I’m used to. I always wanted to do a big animation movie and stick to the codes that this genre sometimes implies.
Gustavo Santaolalla
There are lots of good reasons to abandon a project. Having a little competition is not one of them.
Seth Godin
We always project into the future or reflect in the past, but we are so little in the present.
Marina Abramovic
I was very conceptual about what I was doing; I had the first five albums planned out, and all the songs on every album, and the artwork. I always had these ambitious musical projects in mind.
St. Lucia
I’m a project-based photographer; I think in narrative terms, the way a writer thinks of a book, or a filmmaker a film.
Alec Soth
We will also be funding projects that empower women and children in Afghanistan and now and then give scholarships to Afghan students here in the Bay Area.
Khaled Hosseini
I work on everything all at once, which is maybe the worst way to go about it. But I think that actually it works really well in terms of the serendipitous connections between all of these many different projects and these many different realms.
Jonathon Keats
The local music community here was dying for a place to record, so we started doing acoustic, folk and bluegrass and then did rock projects for other bands, as well as for my son Tal and my own work.
Randy Bachman
Get an agent. Seriously, submitting stuff unagented means it will end up on the slush pile. An agent is the first quality filter, and a good agent is worth his or her weight in gold, as they’ll often know the editors on a personal level and will be able to talk to them directly about the project.
Tim Lebbon
We are telling veterans they must sacrifice to pay for the pet projects and contracts to campaign donors of powerful members of Congress.
Nick Lampson
To do panels where you get to interact with your fans, in a really intimate, awesome way, and to let them ask all of the questions, is fun to me and it shows them that you care about their opinions, their thoughts, and their passion for your project.
Zachary Levi
I like starting projects in January. That’s the best time to start something. It’s so inward.
Carolyn Chute
I began doing writing projects and art and design projects to explore a new way of seeing Canada. Roots is one more way of continuing this exploration. I want to present a wide-open Canadian sense of color, adventure, communication and openness that defines our country.
Douglas Coupland
Acting is acting, but acting is different in almost always every project, and very, very different in this context.
Helen Mirren
Because there are now online databases of federally funded research, and these databases are searchable by keyword, sex researchers have to be careful how they title their projects. It’s become a simple matter, for those who are so inclined, to find and target researchers whose work they object to on religious grounds.
Mary Roach
There’s a great place for good Christian children’s books. After the upcoming projects I’m working on, I’d like to turn my attention back to children’s books. Maybe with a granddaughter I’ll have more inspiration and new ideas.
Max Lucado
If your project has real substance, ultimately the money will follow you like a common cur in the street with its tail between its legs.
Werner Herzog
Perfectionism is a time waster – 20 percent of the effort you put into any project accomplishes 80 percent of the outcome – so this is a time to ask yourself when good enough is enough and then stop.
Mira Kirshenbaum
Some documentaries are made by people who are driven more by one particular story, or have different backgrounds or ambitions, but I’m always looking for projects that let me be the best filmmaker I can be, and to be stretched and grow further.
Lucy Walker
I’m not someone who works a lot, and what I mean by that is that I have a project and I focus on it, and I don’t spread myself too thin. I try to give as much as I can to that project, and if we have a lot of time, that’s amazing for me, because I like to really dive deep and do as much as I can.
Logan Lerman
Not all of our work is dark, but when we are working on a dark project, we really tend to go there.
Erich Hoeber
I suppose each project is a new thing, so there’s all this excitement and nerves about this new thing. Every single thing is like a new thing, so it’s never what I expect. I don’t know what to expect for the next thing. There are always different people. It’s interesting.
Agyness Deyn
I like learning stuff. The more information you can get about a person or a subject, the more you can pour into a potential project. I made a decision to do different things. I want to do things that have a better chance of being thought of as original. I do everything I can to disrupt my comfort zone.
Brian Grazer
I like to work on a number of things simultaneously. If you’re working on a variety of projects and if you get stuck on one of them, you can move to another without grinding your gears indefinitely.
Eric Maskin
I was inspired by the Hole in the Wall project, where a computer with an internet connection was put in a Delhi slum. When the slum was revisited after a month, the children of that slum had learned how to use the worldwide web.
Sugata Mitra
If you fall out of favor, you quickly stop being part of the conversation. But it can take one great project to turn things around. All you need is one hit or one great idea well-executed, and everybody’s talking about you again.
Chris O’Donnell
Every person who sees you physically evaluates you and projects energy towards you based upon the way you’ve dressed.
Frederick Lenz
The common erotic project of destroying women makes it possible for men to unite into a brotherhood; this project is the only firm and trustworthy groundwork for cooperation among males and all male bonding is based on it.
Andrea Dworkin
It’s true. We’re really working hard to make Incline Lake a reality, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not focused on other projects to improve the basin – sometimes big projects.
Rex Norman
I don’t need to work right away. I’d rather wait for something really good; to be excited about a role, or a director, or a project.
Nina Dobrev
You know, it’s going to be a really long tour, and well, I guess I’ll see what happens with A Perfect Circle, ’cause they do other projects too, and I don’t know. I hope I can always do a lot of different things, do ’em well.
James Iha
When you start a new project, you wonder whether it’s the right choice.
Jamie Bamber
Let’s embrace more of life, not less. Balanced people don’t change the world, and I’d rather spend my time feeling worn out from meaningful activities and projects.
Chris Guillebeau
Weddings are giant Rorschach tests onto which everyone around you projects their fears, fantasies, and expectations – many of which they’ve been cultivating since the day you were born.
Susan Jane Gilman
I’m not sure that you can say definitively that some roles are better filled by consultants, but I would say that some projects are better handled by consultants.
Jesse James Garrett
I prefer consider Stromae as a collective project. Stromae is not me. Or at least it is not only me.
Stromae
When you take on a project, you have to be certain that you can make the best version of whatever it is youre given.
Jake Kasdan
I love interacting the fans and try to answer questions that people have. And I love when people are excited about projects, so. I am just a tweet away.
Dan Amboyer
It’s a pretty intuitive process, picking the projects that I want to get involved with.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt
the desert breeds reserve. It is so big that one’s own plans and projects seem too little to be talked about. Also, there is so much time to say anything that one continually puts it off and ends by never saying it at all.
Rosita Forbes
It seems that film-makers are being divided between those working in digital and those who are not. I think it’s not something predetermined – it all depends on what project we have in mind, and on that basis we choose the medium.
Abbas Kiarostami
Maimonides taught that it is better that 10 criminals go free than let one innocent man be executed. The Innocence Project represents that point of view.
Norman Lamm
Any project that I find encouraging that isn’t attached to a studio, I can go to them, which I definitely would. You have to take an interest in what you do.
Al Pacino
Asian people have a unique way about them and a different sense of beauty. It’s exotic to me. I like they way Asians project their feelings. There’s a hardness to the culture, but at the same time there’s a delicateness.
Paz Vega
I love watching reality shows – I’m up to date with ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and I love ‘Project Runway.’ But the shows where they’re just sitting in a house aren’t as fun to me!
Emma Bunton
Voice acting is very interesting, I’ve done several animated projects, and you have to make the voice reflect the character and try and do as much with a word as you can with a look in a live-action film.
William Shatner
If you don’t have that trust in the backbone of the project, you may not know what you’re making.
Lily Collins
A lot of projects I do be all ‘real’ music.
Lil Durk
For me as a filmmaker, I do the projects I’m really excited about.
Laura Ziskin
I feel that the whole Western World will benefit by the resurrection of the neutron bomb project.
Ronald Reagan
For me, the greatest kind of success that I’ve had on a particular project or in exploring a role does come through collaboration. I wouldn’t want to do a movie where everything I do the director just says, “Good job” and I’m under directed.
Miles Teller
A good movie is made by an initial burst of energy, the way that, when you are in school, your class exercises are always better than your final projects.
Abbas Kiarostami
I’ve been involved with some huge studio projects that have been bloody awesome. It all starts with a great script, doesn’t it?
Juno Temple
Persistence is important in every endeavor. Whether it’s finishing your homework, completing school, working late to finish a project, or “finishing the drill” in sports, winners persist to the point of sacrifice in order to achieve their goals.
Leon F. “Lee” Ellis
We do not project power from bankruptcy court. We’re borrowing a million dollars a minute.
Rand Paul
You make your first album, you make some money, and you feel like you still have to show face, like ‘I still go to the projects.’ I’m like, why? Your job is to inspire people from your neighborhood to get out. You grew up there. What makes you think it’s so cool?
Jay-Z
Violating human rights is integral to the project of neoliberalism and global hegemony.
Arundhati Roy
We have a project with Unocal here in Los Angeles, where we as an environmental organization, the oil company, and the state all get together to promote the recycling of used motor oil.
Ted Danson
Concentration is the magic key that opens the door to accomplishment. By concentrating our efforts upon a few major goals, our efficiency soars, our projects are completed we are going somewhere.
Michael Korda
The Christian sees the world as a transitional home badly in need of rehab, and we are active agents in that project.
Philip Yancey
I love the producer, Joel Rice. We worked together years ago putting a project together.
Marilu Henner
I am constantly thinking ahead to what I want to write about in the future, and when I’m done with one project, I give myself a little time and then start the next one.
Francesca Lia Block
I want to make films that make a difference. I want to be out and hope that that will make things better for gay people and for myself. I hope one day I can start to make the kind of projects or be involved with kind of projects that can really make a difference
Jill Bennett
All improvement happens project by project and in no other way.
Joseph M. Juran
I like to surprise myself. I’ve always been attracted to projects where I don’t know how they’re going to turn out.
Terrence McNally
You know, ‘Project Runway’ was a really special show, and we had a great five seasons with it. We loved that show, and we loved the stories that it brought to Bravo and the creativity. And it was a magic five seasons.
Andy Cohen
To middle-class parents, the project team may have seemed unfit for children, but it was exactly what I needed.
Willie Stargell
I was desperate to work with Stuart Immonen, who I have talked with for several years about doing a project together. So just the stars aligned. I knew that Stuart had a little break in his schedule, where he would be willing to do a project with me. So this year I’ve been very lucky.
Mark Millar
Confrontation is something that I accept as part of the project though not its purpose.
Andy Goldsworthy
In terms of form, all the projects interest me equally, although there are obviously large differences according to the scale and process of each project.
Zaha Hadid
If a film is a huge hit, you do think properly before choosing your next projects.
Yami Gautam
As a producer, I think one of the most important decisions you make is not necessarily the material you are working on but the production apparatus that you choose to develop the project with, and that determines what funding you go to, it determines many factors.
Atom Egoyan
The number of teachers and guides that a soul has depends upon what it seeks to accomplish and its level of awareness. Souls that take upon themselves projects of more magnitude bring to themselves more assistance.
Gary Zukav
Getting to share a project with Anthony Hopkins is incredible. It’s like watching Da Vinci paint or something – you’re reminded why you do what you do.
Evan Rachel Wood
Good planning is the foundation of success for almost any project. Start by getting clear on your goal.
Jude Bijou
The Trevor Project is committed to providing all young people, regardless of sexual identity, the opportunity to be heard and the encouragement to be themselves.
James Lecesne
I always gravitate towards the independent side of things, just because those are the stories I always fall in love with, but you don’t really get paid, and living in Los Angeles is expensive, and I have a mortgage to pay. So it’s good to jump onto a studio film and then in all my other time do small passion projects.
Aaron Paul
In Germany, you would be hanged if you cracked a joke about Hitler and you would be killed by the state if you were insane in a project of euthanasia.
Werner Herzog
The root of any film project for me is this inner need to express something. What nurtures this root and makes it grow into a tree is the script. What makes the tree bear flowers and fruit is the directing.
Akira Kurosawa
When I moved to Los Angeles, my goal was to gain respect – whether it’s in big or small projects – and as long as the work is good I’m happy.
Garrett Clayton
I don’t like necessarily that people think ‘Metal Gear’ defines me. I love ‘Metal Gear,’ don’t get me wrong. But as a creator, I really want to work on other projects, including new games.
Hideo Kojima
The only projects that excite me have to be tied to some aspect of social change. No matter how beautiful, a coffee book doesn’t exactly move you to change the way you cook or eat.
Homaro Cantu
I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we’ll turn the world inside out. And this starts right now.
JR
We should pray and seek for knowledge which would enable us to portray and project the things we love in music, in a way that might wholly or in some part, be appreciated as having been conceived and composed or performed and presented with dedication and in positive taste
John Coltrane
The Fairness Project is endeavoring to try to do what we can to make a fairer society.
Mike Lowry
I’ve done other things, but it always seems like my sci-fi projects have been what people respond to the most, because those fans are extraordinary, so passionate.
Summer Glau
I think there is a direct correlation between interest shown by a member of Congress on these projects and the progress that is made. I think it gives the Superfund effort some credibility, lets citizens know we are serious about these cleanups.
Rodney Frelinghuysen
Taking on challenging projects is the way that one grows and extends one’s range as a writer, one’s technical command, so I consider the time well-spent.
Donna Tartt
Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre is a genuine project and a living proof of generosity of the people of Pakistan.
Hadiqa Kiani
Recognize when your peak energy occurs during the day. Allocate the most difficult projects to that period. Work on easy projects at low-energy times
Denis Waitley
I love working with new directors. There’s so much drive and effort. It still comes down to the character for me, but if it’s a character I really want to play, I would never not do the project because of a new director.
Pauley Perrette
The objective of producing useful devices has strongly influenced the choice of the research projects with which I have been associated.
William Shockley
I would hate for someone to look at my shoe and say, ‘Oh my God! That looks so comfortable!’
Christian Louboutin
There’ve been moments where I just was tired of being in L.A. It was very difficult. I mean, you’re constantly rejected. And that’s OK, it’s just really frustrating for me, because I try to read scripts and projects that have really great, deeper, meaningful qualities to them.
Missy Peregrym
I try to pick interesting projects, the kind of projects that I would want to watch.
Tessa Thompson
“Mansome” was one of those projects where it was a great change to do something fun and look at the subject in an engaging way. My next film is not going to be about pedicures.
Morgan Spurlock
Some of the best projects to ever come out of Atari or Chuck E. Cheese’s were from high school dropouts, college dropouts. One guy had been in jail.
Nolan Bushnell
They are damn good projects – excellent projects. That goes for all the projects up there. You know some people make fun of people who speak a foreign language, and dumb people criticize something they do not understand, and that is what is going on up there – God damn it!
Harry Hopkins
As a director, I have to feel realism from actors, and they can’t be plastic. The words for me are secondary, but the chemistry between the actors is most important. However, you have to go by the script because it’s related to production, otherwise you will not finish your project.
Tommy Wiseau
I do not draw any of the pictures for my movies as an animator. The reason for that is that I am terribly lucky to have many staff members who I look up to, and who are overflowing with talent, that work with me on each project.
Mamoru Hosoda
I grew up in Harlem Grant projects, and I didn’t have a whole lot then. I’ve always been good about only getting what I need, not what I want. Just because someone else has something, I don’t feel the need to.
Keith Sweat
We were looking to collaborate with someone on both those fronts [ writing and directing] and it ended up just being me [in Brief Interviews with Hideous Men]. So, at this point, it’s the epitome of a passion project and I just hope people like it.
John Krasinski
The Venus Project is a concept that could happen today but it is not up to me, it depends on what others do to help bring it about.
Jacque Fresco
I’ve spent years saying no to things. It’s important to be selective with both projects and partners.
Lauren Conrad
I’ve always juggled a lot of projects because at least half the projects you do get shelved. So you have to do a lot of things in order for things to move forward.
Alan Menken
When Libya was in turmoil in 2011, the Chinese public was surprised to discover that more than thirty thousand of their countrymen were living there, most of them working on Chinese-run oil projects.
Evan Osnos
When you smile and project an aura of warmth, kindness, and friendliness, you will attract warms, kindness, and friendliness. Happy people will be drawn to you.
Joel Osteen
We are trained to analyze problems and create solutions. We forget that marriage is a relationship, not a project to be completed or a problem to solve.
Gary Chapman
Marriage is a difficult project. When seven years have passed and all your body’s cells have been replaced, you’re meant to experience that seven-year itch.
Yoko Ono
Whenever you do an animated project or a voice-over project it’s inevitable that part of your personality comes into play.
Tara Strong
Authors like reading. Go figure. So it’s not surprising that we sometimes bog down in the research stage of new writing projects.
Edward M. Lerner
My end goal is just to do projects at the end of the day that I’m proud of.
Aaron Paul
Every new development, highway, railroad, steamship line, building operation, whether it be a drainage project in old Greece or a new water system in Peru, means an added use of the automobile.
Walter Chrysler
Ultimately it’s the public nature of those projects that I most enjoy. Museums are more than just places to view art, they’re also civic and social centers.
Richard Meier
I felt for a long time that this is what I want to do so I’m happy at this point to just take my time and work on projects that I feel strongly about, and the rest of the time just live my life
Jennifer Connelly
Karma simply means that whatever type of energy you project, or you allow to pass through your being, you will become for a period of time.
Frederick Lenz
Certainly I get a lot personally out of it as well, there’s the recognition and things like that but mostly I try to take that as an opportunity to explain why I hope we could see more projects like Apache out there and why it’s a good thing for society.
Brian Behlendorf
With each project, I’m going for something that makes viewers think, ‘Wow, I’ve never seen a film like this before,’ and later think, ‘Wow, I’ve only seen a film like this once before. I saw it in theaters and am watching it now on Netflix or a similar streaming service.’
Kathryn Bigelow
Climbing, for me, is all about solving the magnitude of the problem. The best projects are the ones with big question marks hanging over them.
Alex Lowe
Human beings are co-partners with deity in the project of being. This is the basis of all magic.
Terence McKenna
There were open source projects and free software before Linux was there. Linux in many ways is one of the more visible and one of the bigger technical projects in this area, and it changed how people looked at it because Linux took both the practical and ideological approach.
Linus Torvalds
I don’t make a habit of watching my parents’ films, because it is a little strange. But I will say that I binge watch ‘House of Cards’ compulsively, and I think it’s the first time I’ve ever seen one of my mom’s projects and totally forgot she was my mom!
Dylan Penn
I project that this next election – the 2016 election – if it is about anything thematically, it is going to be about that sense of rage and displacement among white working-class voters.
Joy-Ann Reid
Never treat somebody’s cleverness as his life’s smartness. Cleverness is to hide the weakness and the smartness is to project the strength of his weakness.
Anuj
To be honest, we donate to projects that we think are meaningful. How society views it or how we are viewed by history, well, we’ll let them decide. How others view us is out of our control.
Ronnie Chan
Retire from your job but never from meaningful projects. If you want to live a long life, you need eustress, that is, a deep sense of meaning and of contribution to worthy projects and causes, particularly, your intergenerational family.
Stephen Covey
My temperament is not the adventuresome sort that enjoys starting new projects every six months. I love ensemble, nine-to-five stability. There’s a family dynamic in making a television show that you don’t get on a movie, where you’re a hired gun for a few months.
Ted Danson
What gets projects done for me is not inspiration. It’s curiosity and rigor.
Andrew Zuckerman
On the flip side, no one has any idea who the hell I am. I felt like I had to prove myself to them. On any new project I’m working on, the first week is nerve-wracking, but especially with these people that I admire so much and who I just want to be equal with.
Dave Franco
To people in my industry I’m usually a guy that tries to generate his own projects and I remain very elusive when people try and attach me to big projects.
Peter Jackson
A great trick that I learned having worked as a screenwriter for many years, the way screenwriters work, is they break the project down into three-act structure: Act 1, Act 2, Act 3. I think that is a great way to break down any project, whether it’s a new business or anything at all.
Steven Pressfield
Television and film acting is really fun because you are working with other people and you are not completely responsible for the outcome of the project.
Alex Borstein
My brain is a big cluster of stuff. It moves quickly and loses focus quickly, so I need many projects to keep me stimulated – it’s a luxury to be able to do lots of different things: style, write, present, DJ or just consult. It can’t be any other way; I think I would shrivel up and fall asleep forever.
Alexa Chung
However depressed I may be I am not in the habit of giving up a project without having tried everything, even the ‘impossible’, to gain my end.
Paul Gauguin
Listening is active. It’s like vision. It’s like the idea of the eye projecting light, which I’ve heard is what children and infants say when they’re asked to explain vision – that the eye projects light, rather than just receives it.
Eyvind Kang
After my first visit to Japan, in 1960, to work on a joint model building project at Osaka University, I maintained a continuing interest in the country and the entire Far East.
Lawrence Klein
I have no idea what the next project will be and if there’s a next project. I don’t even know if we’re all going to be here tomorrow, but I’m pretty optimistic.
Oren Moverman
Men, through the ideas they have, project a field of attention that limits women.
Frederick Lenz
I feel like because I’ve done more gay characters, gay scenes, or gay projects than most straight actors, people see it as some sort of mission. It’s more of a case-by-case basis, and just trying to capture figures that I love. I guess that a lot of the figures that I love were gay.
James Franco
The instruments, glassware, and chemical reagents necessary for my project were the same as my 19th-century predecessors had.
Rita Levi-Montalcini
Juggling many projects and having all these accidental collisions that you can’t predict enables a kind of comparative thinking. To focus on a single project from beginning to end is extremely difficult, not just for me, but for many people.
Natalie Jeremijenko
NATO has a special relationship with countries far away from Europe: Australia, Japan, South Korea. They have joint projects and programmes which are being implemented without these countries becoming members of NATO.
Sergei Lavrov
For minority actors, developing our own projects has to be the eventual path. We have a lot of stories to tell and a really unique voice. But none of that is going to be heard as long as we’re just the hired hands, acting.
Jimmy Smits
Globally, the highest number of irrigation projects are in India, and within the country, the highest number is in Maharashtra.
Sharad Pawar
Every book is a new journey. I never felt I was an expert on a subject as I embarked on a project.
David McCullough
The chances of running out of yarn on a project are directly related to the difficulty that you will have getting more.
Stephanie Pearl-McPhee
Foreign aid projects have pumped billions of dollars into the Afghan economy.
Richard Engel
In Japan, I have my own line of dinnerware, but I’m not aggressive about pursuing those projects.
Nobu Matsuhisa
Every project is different. When I’m working on my albums, I’ve worked with different producers and they’ve all had different personalities. The recording studio sets the vibe, and that changes as well.
Diego Boneta
It is important to consider whether the sample size selected by the Environmental Genome Project will provide sufficient power to discover most alleles relevant to gene-environment interactions.
Samuel Wilson
I experienced how foreign aid for large-scale vaccination projects helps to save the life of children and thus give a real input to growth and to escaping poverty.
Jonas Gahr Store
I already have a production company called J Squared and we’re working on two projects.
Jordana Brewster
Being consistent is way less interesting than being yourself. And if you’re not interesting? Good luck with your Big Consistency Project.
Merlin Mann
When government ‘creates jobs’ by taking money from the private sector and ‘investing’ in favored projects, it is not truly productive activity. Rather, the government has preempted the economic process, forbidding it to serve consumers so that it can instead serve the objectives of politicians and bureaucrats.
Sheldon Richman
I would like to see policy makers and international donor agencies realize that it is not enough to give money for demonstration projects. From the very beginning plans should be made for the scaling-up of successful innovations.
Ruth Simmons
What we want… is for students to get more interested in things, more involved in them, more engaged in wanting to know; to have projects that they can get excited about and work on over long periods of time, to be stimulated to find things out on their own.
Howard Gardner
We believe that the future for content-creators such as ourselves lies in being able to source project money from an audience and deliver on those projects in a timely and cost-effective manner.
Freddie Wong
If we are in earnest about giving the Union energy and duration we must abandon the vain project of legislating upon the States in their collective capacities.
Alexander Hamilton
As movies and TV projects come up, they go out to the agents and we just go out and audition for them.
James Frain
Developing projects of my own and producing and writing and directing is something that’s very interesting to me, but you know, one step at a time and you’ve got to establish yourself on one side before you really have the power to do something else. That’s always the immediate goal.
Tye Sheridan
Netflix has such a knack for giving a new life to those B-movies that you thought and hoped no one would ever see. Especially when you have a new project coming out and they’re looking to mine some of your lesser-known films.
Spencer Grammer
For most of the projects I’ve worked on, I’ve been entrusted with some degree of musical responsibility, even if it’s just like coaching for vocals and stuff.
J. Robbins
Cosmic reveries separate us from project reveries. They situate us in a world and not in a society. The cosmic reverie possesses a sort of stability or tranquility. It helps us escape time. It is a state.
Gaston Bachelard
I have found, unfortunately, that if I take on too many projects at one time, there is a higher probability of those projects sucking.
Damon Lindelof
Many men have deep rooted problems regarding the status of women, and during sex these problems come out. They consciously or unconsciously project anger and hate towards women they have sex with. This energy enters a woman’s subtle physical body and damages it.
Frederick Lenz
Success is a project that’s always under construction.
Pat Summitt
In the film business, when you’re young, you just want to work. But when you’re older, it has more to do with who’s involved with the project – who you’re going to get in the boat with.
Alec Baldwin
I had a conversation with Nick Barrucci, and he said he thought I’d be a good fit for this project. It was just that simple! Once I learned what Kurt Busiek, Alex Ross, and Jack Herbert were doing for Kirby: Genesis, though, I was even more on board.
Sterling Gates
Abandoning the project was incredibly stressful after having gone through the process of building the room, installing the kiln, collecting the stones, sitting with the kiln day and night as it came to temperature, experiencing the failures.
Andy Goldsworthy
What saved the economy, and the New Deal, was the enormous public works project known as World War II, which finally provided a fiscal stimulus adequate to the economy’s needs.
Paul Krugman
I worked on human rights projects in Haiti, Cameroon, and East Asia, and the bigger ones tended to do with agriculture. My role was to make sure that there was equity that remained at the base of those projects, with the workers. I had a couple of different lives.
Sanjay Rawal
I think always what happens when you ask men questions on the red carpet, it’s always based on what projects they’re working on, whatever they’re about, rather than this, ‘Give us little tips for all of us women’… because we’re all the same. Questions should just be more individual.
Emily Ratajkowski
Architects often have a mindset where you solve a problem, so you have a set of needs that you have to address. Often I feel that my projects have to have concrete applications.
Pedro Reyes
Even though the industry is very big and there’s lots of money, when it gets down to it, whether it’s a photographer or a designer, as well as a stylist or makeup artist, you’re really only working with maybe four or five people on a project. It’s all quite small and intimate.
Guido Palau
I like all my work equally. I look at the projects as children. I look at the experience more than the end result.
Lee Daniels
I am such a pessimist that every project has surpassed what I envisioned.
Colin Mochrie
We all find ourselves involved in projects or activities that confound us-when or why did I say I would do this? What was I thinking? I needed a poem for myself that said-pause longer. Think again.
Naomi Shihab Nye
I think about all these influences and musical cultures, then the opinion of the audience is of course important, but when I’m working on an album or a new project, I’m not all the time thinking about what the audience will think about it.
Rokia Traore
Freedom Summer, the massive voter education project in Mississippi, was 1964. I graduated from high school in 1965. So becoming active was almost a rite of passage.
Danny Glover
A writer’s problem does not change. He himself changes and the world he lives in changes but his problem remains the same. It is always how to write truly and having found what is true, to project it is such a way that it becomes a part of the experience of the person who reads it.
Ernest Hemingway
There are hundreds, even thousands of remarkable pilot or experimental projects in all fields – in agriculture, health, education. But where do these pilots take us? Do they lead to change on a broader scale? If not, how can we ensure that they have broader impact?
Ruth Simmons
Today, our sexuality is an open-ended personal project; it is part of who we are, an identity, and no longer merely something we do.
Esther Perel
You’ve no future unless you add value, create projects.
Rosabeth Moss Kanter
I used to read a lot about myself and the projects I was doing. When I was only acting, I wouldn’t read any reviews because I didn’t find them to be very helpful.
James Franco
The fact that a thirteen-year-old project still resonates and can still have a large exhibit with lots of newspaper, magazine and TV press shows the timelessness of the project.
Peter Menzel
NEPA’s common sense approach to foster discussion and collaboration about major development projects has worked well to protect our national treasures and resources.
Frances Beinecke
I like to do projects that challenge me, and hopefully in turn challenge the audience, or open your eyes to something you’re not aware of.
Mia Wasikowska
Slow down and make building relationships as important as building projects.
Greg Mortenson
I just like to choose projects that will allow me as an artist to make my art.
Donnie Yen
My days are kind of controlled by my projects, so sometimes they’re album covers. Sometimes they’re commission portrait shoots. Sometimes they are editorial, so it kind of – I don’t dictate it.
Carol Friedman
I really have no preference between TV and film. I think that each individual project is its own thing and has a very different style.
Zach Gilford
If you believe in the project, you have to support it.
Vin Diesel
Never would I have thought that I would meet Mick Jagger, much less be working on the same project.
Ato Essandoh
I was just a kid selling monster stories to the kids in the projects, complete with a dramatic reading, making the werewolf sounds. My career was aborted early on because one of my main customers started to have nightmares and his mother came to my mother and my mother shut down my whole business.
George R. R. Martin
I’m fascinated with genetic science, and I have been for a very long time. I always look at science and technology because I think that the developments in my lifetime have been so remarkable – and we’re only at the tip of the iceberg with projects like decoding the human genome.
Nick Rhodes
There’s competition in every field, and that’s healthy. It makes you work harder and be your best. Competition, not in terms of money or number of projects, but in the quality of your work, is very healthy.
Katrina Kaif
There are a couple of projects that are sort of on the plate; I haven’t closed any of them yet. I’m trying to figure out which one is going to be the best one for me.
Jay Hernandez
I’m excited that I get to do what I love, and I’m benefiting through projects that speak to me.
Octavia Spencer
Hi,” Kami said to Dorothy, the head librarian…”Can you tell me where I could find the books on Satanism?” Twenty minutes later, she had Dorothy convinced that it was for a school project, and she really did not have to telephone Kami’s parents.
Sarah Rees Brennan
I’m always trying to find something unique or a project that I can do something unique in.
Josh Hartnett
The overall view of the human genome project has been one of great excitement and positive press, but there are people who have concerns that are quite reasonable, and they are frightened of things they don’t understand.
Thomas Cech
Many of the projects I’m most proud of are tall buildings, especially the housing projects. In New York I have two: one in Kips Bay and one at New York University. At that time, those projects were most challenging.
I. M. Pei
I think change needs to be egoless. It’s not about my leaving my fingerprints or a legacy. It’s more important to be part of a process by rolling up your sleeves, being on the ground, initiating projects, starting campaigns – you know, building stuff.
Queen Rania of Jordan
Project your mind into your subject until you actually live in it.
Howard Pyle
I went from the projects to a real house. It was a big difference.
Allen Iverson
Fear only exists when you do not understand that you have the power to project thought and that the Universe will respond.
Esther Hicks
We only take on projects that we’re really passionate about.
Kourtney Kardashian
South Australia has transformed. There has been a range of changes to our economy over the past 10 years in which we have genuinely set ourselves up for the future. I think we have to start behaving like that’s real and project a quiet confidence in the future of our state.
Jay Weatherill
Although I am a young leader, I actually came to it strangely quite late. I have a different perspective, partly because of my family, partly because of what I did for ten years: negotiating trade deals, working out in Central Asia doing assistance projects.
Nick Clegg
I know now that I want to do more voice-over projects. They really have the ability to transport you into the world of whatever movie it is you are working on.
Bridgit Mendler
If you don’t have a brilliant screenplay, then you either have amazing actors who give you the chance to improve whatever is on the page, or an interesting director who has enough faith in the project that they can carry it through and get it somewhere. One of those factors needs to happen. If not, it’s sad.
Ayelet Zurer
I’m sort of suspicious of most economic development projects, but the ones that encourage taxpayer-funded relocation bidding wars should be declared unconstitutional.
Gail Collins
It would have been possible to structure my photographs in such a way that no indicators of the present were discernible. However, I wanted to incorporate into the project as a whole the jostling of time-frames I would feel as I set up my tripod on various rocky promontories.
John Pfahl
I like a lot of different kinds of music. I like strong projects, big music.
James Iha
After 4 years on NYPD Blue it has been nice to have the summer off and spend time with family and friends. There are a few projects I am interested in and plan to be working this fall.
Mark-Paul Gosselaar
I feel guilty if I’m not reading books, but I read scripts of movies or things that I know I’m committed to that I’m going to do the project. I tell myself, “I’m going to read this script like six times,” and I only read it the initial time.
Jim Gaffigan
Whether we like to admit it or not, as artists, we do project our own worldview on to what we do.
David Oyelowo
Well it kind of is project to project because as a writer I think you always write to some degree about things that you know or things that happened – but my favourite filmmakers, my favourite movies of theirs tend to be the personal movies.
Cameron Crowe
I’m kind of balanced between excited about the potential of the project, and the knowledge that I shouldn’t get my hopes up. I like to be practical, and the truth is, these deals fall apart all the time.
Patrick Rothfuss
If you look at the history of communication, new technologies like the phone and e-mail didnt just let people do things faster; it fundamentally changed the scope of the kinds of projects people dared to take on.
Justin Rosenstein
Capitalism is a wonderful economic engine, but it assigns little value to long-term projects or societal problems.
George M. Whitesides
Before I start a project, I always ask myself the following question. Why is this book worth a year of my life? There needs to be something about the theme, the technique, or the research that makes the time spent on it worthwhile.
David Morrell
Staying focused on a project or plan is one of the most difficult challenges we face. There is always the house to clean, calls to make, laundry to fold, deadlines to meet. Actually, there is only one thing that keeps us from our goals – lack of focus. And very often, lack of focus is caused by fear.
Iyanla Vanzant
If we are hungry enough for God, we will find a way into His presence. We should be so hungry for the presence of God that we absolutely will not go out of our house or tackle any kind of project until we have spent some time with Him.
Joyce Meyer
Everybody has a down day, no one’s perfect; no one’s having the most idyllic life. I mean, I guess everybody wants to project positivity to the outside world, but if we’re honest, no one’s going to have 24/7 bliss.
Luke Evans
We think about project’s public nature and how that can be enhanced, how the spaces we create can enliven the experience of being there.
Richard Meier
I had worked so hard on three projects 1997 that it knocked the gas out of me. It was a mystery to the medical profession, but you can test positive for Epstein-Barr and not have it. When you get a post-viral syndrome, for some people it causes chronic fatigue or hearing loss. For me it became light sensitivity.
Dennis DeYoung
I think IT projects are about supporting social systems – about communications between people and machines. They tend to fail due to cultural issues.
Tim Berners-Lee
If I were to say that I grew up in East Los Angeles in the projects poor, I assumed that everybody understood that it came with its own reasons for being the way I am. I didn’t get that people needed to understand where my comedy came from; I thought that they knew that. Now I tell people.
Carlos Mencia
How hard it is to project oneself into the future. We are always prone to think of the conditions which are with us today as being permanent conditions.
Eleanor Roosevelt
Studios are an assembly line. They can be a very good assembly line. As a producer, you concentrate on one project at a time. As an executive, you’re in charge of a slate.
Michael De Luca
Without dreams we would be cows in a field, and I don’t want to live like that. I live my life or I end my life with this project.
Werner Herzog
And what I liked the most about any project was that when it was good, you had a bunch of people trying to accomplish something together who were all acting together as one – that’s the most exciting time for me.
Liza Minnelli
The genres are widening. I don’t think that there’s as many limitations on the kinds of projects that actors can do as there once was.
Emile Hirsch
I think I’m built like a painter. I have friends who are painters and they reflect a similar psychological attitude towards their work. They don’t know what’s coming next, they just wait for the message, for orders to come and then off they go on their next project.
John McLaughlin
It doesn’t matter to me if it has a surprise ending or not. I usually go for the material or the project.
Donnie Wahlberg
Success is completion. Success is being able to complete what we set out to do – each individual action, each specific step, each desired experience whether a big project or a very small errand.
Susan Collins
My mistake was to project my skill beyond the limits of experience. I began investing outside the industries which I believe I thoroughly understood, in completely different spheres of activity; situations where I did not have comparable background knowledge.
Philip Arthur Fisher
I’m living in the moment. I just try to move each of the stories, scripts and projects that I work on forward. And when they’re ready and the people are ready to make them, we’ll do that.
David Heyman
When you have these surprise breakout films that do well, that have good performances in them, it puts a lot of pressure on the Academy to recognize those projects, so it’s more of a conversation about what is greenlit.
Mahershala Ali
I need to start honing in on projects that I want to devote my time to and not put my energies into the unattainable ones.
Dan Deacon
My instinct is to keep people guessing. I think as an actor your greatest strength is your versatility, I suppose. The blanker the canvas, the easier it is to project the illusion of a character onto it. I think there are many actors who do that very successfully.
Tom Hiddleston
The director, MoisГ©s Kaufman, just received the national medal of the arts from President [Barack] Obama . He wrote and directed The Laramie Project and he has directed several Pulitzer prize-winning plays. He’s a pretty profound director in the theater.
Patrick Heusinger
I’m selfish when it comes to work. I’m like, “Oh, that will be fun! I wanna do that!” I never think beyond my participation in a project.
Holliday Grainger
My first love is writing and producing. So I sometimes put my own stuff off to work on other people’s projects.
Missy Elliott
I’ve been very lucky to work on a wide variety of projects, including two long-run and top-10 dramatic television shows. That is why it is so important to offer a helping hand to the next generation of young Latinos coming up behind me.
Jimmy Smits
Eventually, I thought that it’s interesting to make some rules for yourself while you’re working on one project so it sounds different from the other stuff you do.
Hutch Harris
Having viewed slum clearance projects in most major cities of the world may I state that you have conceived and created in the Johannesburg townships what is probably the most impressive and adequate resettlement activity in existence.
L. Ron Hubbard
Most actors have a process that they can go through, that they rely on, or that they’ve discovered, and that can evolve from project to project.
Thomas Jane
My favorite TV show of all time is ‘The Wire,’ which has the feeling of a project-based show. You draw in people from disparate parts of the world, and they have to work together to achieve a goal.
Michael Schur
I actually like snakes! When I was young, I was a boy scout nature camp counselor, and one of our projects was collecting snakes and creating an environment for them, so I’m quite familiar with snakes and think they’re fantastic creatures.
Harrison Ford
With every project, you feel like you’re trying to find your place to vent. For any actor, that’s typically the feeling that drives you to do it.
Kristen Stewart
I would only take a role that I know I’m comfortable in and I can do. I’ve turned down plenty of things because I’d feel it’s not me, and I wouldn’t want to come on someone’s project and flip that.
J. B. Smoove
I see myself working, making a living and doing projects that I’m passionate about, regardless of the medium.
Matt Bomer
It’s not often as an actor you get to be involved with a project that seems to be on the right side of history.
Justin Bartha
Don’t start vast projects with half-vast resources.
Bruce Pittman
Now, to describe the process of the Wrapped Reichstag, which went from 1971 to ’95, there is an entire book about that, because each one of our projects has its own book. The book is not an art book, meaning it’s not written by an art historian.
Christo
When I started writing the script I thought that maybe someone else would direct it, but then I started to fall for it so much that I left the other project and I put all my time on The German Doctor.
Lucia Puenzo
Katie Paterson introduced the project [ Future Library ] to a handful of writers at a very fine international literary festival in Denmark at the Louisiana Museum, I sent her an e-mail when I got back to Iceland, saying, “It’s a wonderful project.
Sjon
When a doctor is performing an operation, his mind cannot be somewhere else. And it’s the same with actors. You have to commit yourself mind, body and soul to a project in order to do justice to it.
Freida Pinto
It’s absolutely crucial for the Democrats to have a sense of their history, of who they are, in order to be able to project their values and stand up for them.
Sidney Blumenthal
To put it in layman’s terms, crazy is crazy. And crazy will find a way to do something crazy. Racist is racist. And racist people will find a way to project their racism onto the world.
Nia Long
All space projects push the frontiers of technology and are drivers of innovation.
Martin Rees
In so far as the culture industry arouses a feeling of well-being that the world is precisely in that order suggested by the culture industry, the substitute gratification which it prepares for human beings cheats them out of the same happiness which it deceitfully projects.
Theodor Adorno
Whenever I audition for something, if I get excited about the project I’m totally committed to it from that point on. But it can also be a long process, so when I eventually get given the part it’s then that I realise that I’ve actually got to do it and here comes the work!
Matthew Kane
Every time you start a project, you’re hopeful that the critics receive it warmly.
Bryan Cranston
It’s a generational project just to get America to live up fully to its ideals and to have the kind of society where everybody has a shot, and every kid is getting a good education, and people are getting living wages, and they have decent retirement.
Barack Obama
Recent demonstration projects have shown that with some Federal support, a little funding can go a long way toward ensuring that low-income children have access to good oral health care.
Michael K. Simpson
I want to pay my mortgage and go on vacation, so I love working. I want to be able to do independent projects as well, and being on a successful TV show allows you to do some other things.
Spencer Grammer
I’m always reading. Here’s where an ebook reader really comes into its own. When I travel, it allows me to carry a huge chunk of my library with me. Usually, when I am writing one project, I am researching the next or beginning to pull together the material for the book after that.
Michael Scott
All white-collar work is project work. The single salient fact that touches all of our lives is that work is being reinvented.
Tom Peters
There are chakras in the hands; you’ve seen me use those quite frequently when I meditate. I project the shakti, the kundalini, through the chakras in the hands to people I meditate with.
Frederick Lenz
They say I was a bad Batman, that it was my fault, that I buried the franchise. But the truth is, it was a big project. I was pretty intimidated in that world. I did the best I could in the situation I was given.
George Clooney
I’m never at a loss for new projects.
John Sayles
Society needs people who can manage projects in addition to handling individual tasks.
Marilyn vos Savant
The whole point of ‘Acid Rap’ was just to ask people a question: does the music business side of this dictate what type of project this is? If it’s all original music and it’s got this much emotion around it and it connects this way with this many people, is it a mixtape? What’s an ‘album’ these days, anyways?
Chance the Rapper
The person must be blind, indeed, who can not see, that here on earth a great project, a great plan, is executed, may work on the realization of which we participate as faithful servants.
Winston Churchill
People actually ask me why I bring in projects on budget and on time. It seems I am not living up to the fashionable genius role. I really enjoy when a project gets down to the wire, and through sheer force of will and faith in our process, we cross the goal line, when most people thought it impossible.
Curtis W. Fentress
Maybe [success] is because I’m in China and I’m more open. Maybe it’s my independent behavior, or because I participated in certain projects. I have no idea.
Ai Weiwei
Fast drivers can see no further than slow drivers, but they must look further down the road to time their reactions safely. Similarly, people with great projects afoot habitually look further and more clearly into the future than people who are mired in day-to-day concerns.
Robert Grudin
When I was living in the projects, I had a mop stick for my horse. I wanted to be Gene Autry or Roy Rogers, so I would ride my mop through the projects.
Aaron Neville
In today’s gig economy, where jobs have been replaced by ‘portfolios of projects,’ most people find themselves doing more things less well for two-thirds of the money.
Tina Brown
Probably some of the projects I chose to do after that had more to do with what people thought of me. The industry was very open and probably hoping that I could do anything.
Bo Derek
You work hard and you pray, and you do something where you know the energy around the project is right, but you never really know if it’s going to hit and resonate with audiences.
Jussie Smollett
Every relationship should eventually become a long-term relationship. Any director that I meet now isn’t just a director. He’s potentially a friend, and someone I can call to do a project that I want or that I have. That’s what I mean when I say branding and developing yourself, as a business.
Kevin Hart
In an effort to devote more time, energy and focus to fewer projects, I’ve had to make some tough decisions, and one such decision was ‘retiring’ from ‘Speakeasy.’
Paul F. Tompkins
If I get the opportunity to be an actor and do some cool, fun and interesting projects, I’m going to do that.
Anthony Mackie
I’m someone who likes to keep busy, especially with projects that I find meaningful and fulfilling.
Niki Taylor
Animals in general have always been my passion, project, crusade – whatever you want to call it! The ocean is such a huge, beautiful thing that I feel like we all take for granted.
Aimee Teegarden
They’re reacting and that’s wonderful. It’s better than them sitting there doing nothing. I say make them react – do whatever’s in your power to move the audience, and if that’s where it is, and there where it is with America, sex and violence, then I say project it.
Alice Cooper
Fear of failure held me back from being a DIYer for many years, especially after a few early attempts at home improvement projects went awry.
Mark Frauenfelder
If you find that your organization can’t make the hard decisions that Scrum demands, then high-risk, uncertain projects have very little probability of success in your organization.
Jim Highsmith
You have different people who come into your life and they affect you in a way and leave an impact on you. Whether it’s projects or friends or directors, it’s just an opportunity that people give me.
Selena Gomez
It’s not what’s there that counts, it’s what’s projected and?it’s not what he projects but rather what the voter receives? It’s not the man we have to change, but rather the received impression.
Ray Price
When good things come in, my agent calls or sends me the script. But I allow them to sort through the offers so that I am not just sitting and reading everything because honestly, sometimes the scripts that appeal to me are projects that are not good projects, but I just really like the script or the characters.
Megan Fox
For me personally, to hop onboard and use the amazing success and blessings in my life to pull off something like the 30/30 Project is awesome.
Ryan Lewis
If you cannot be on the project each day to check on things, then you should not try and be your own contractor.
Robert Metcalfe
The age of the skyscraper is gone. This is the age of the housing project. Which is always a prelude to the age of the cave.
Ayn Rand
There are those special projects that don’t ever feel like work but just a blessing to be a part of, and ‘Revolution’ is one of those projects.
Daniella Alonso
I never go about a new project as if I’m trying ot redefine myself. I just like to work, and I’m excited by material I find challenging and – if it’s a comedy – exceptionally funny.
Julia Louis-Dreyfus
You can never really tell, it’s kind of a red herring until you see the project I think. You just know if you like working with someone or not, and he does have a real sweetness about him, I think.
Mary-Louise Parker
Great projects, like great careers and relationships that last, are gardens. They are tended, they shift, they grow. They endure over time, gaining a personality and reflecting their environment. When something dies or fades away, we prune, replant and grow again.
Seth Godin
I don’t want to look back at my career and see a string of incredibly commercial projects that don’t have much heart. I’m looking for things that have soul.
Taron Egerton
I believe that there are many interesting projects that are potentially possible for me other than game music, and therefore in my mind there are several things that are being contemplated.
Nobuo Uematsu
When I connect to my soul, project it into another #‎ character , and then bring it to the stage or to a film–that has always been for me the great joy of #‎ acting . It’s been as if my soul kind of leaps out of my body and is able to be free and dance around.
Kyra Sedgwick
For me to start working, projects have to catch my attention whether they are here (in the USA) or in Mexico. All I want is to be involved in projects that are interesting to me, projects that are a challenge wherever they may happen, in Spain, in China, or in Hollywood.
Kate del Castillo
It took three years to put Shakespeare’s words together, there were a lot of words to be studied and a lot of words to be sorted out, and it proved to be a major project.
David Crystal
The Venus Project is not about new cities or new architecture. It’s about a way of thinking
Jacque Fresco
Sorry, but there is no pleasure in finding new ways of saying the same stuff about projects which tanked.
Alex Cox
I’ve been very fortunate as a composer to be involved with projects that have really propelled my scores forward. I’m very proud of it.
Alan Menken
Men despise great projects when they do not feel themselves capable of great successes.
Luc de Clapiers
Material comes all kinds of ways, and it’s never a question of a lack of material or a lack of projects – I have tons of projects. The issue is to convince someone to give you the money. And it’s a very different business than it was just 8 years ago.
John Landis
I’ve enjoyed all of the roles I have played for different reasons, which is the great thing about acting. You love different projects for different reasons.
Alex Wolff
I am proud to be part of a community that only projects love and education and the support of one another.
Lauren Jauregui
Each one projects his own defects over the others, each one see in other his own defects.
Samael Aun Weor
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw
I’d already started directing short films when we were doing ‘Lord of the Rings,’ then videogame projects.
Andy Serkis
Well I’ve got lots more great TV projects in the pipeline.
Lisa S.
Compassion isn’t some kind of self-improvement project or ideal that we’re trying to live up to. Having compassion starts and ends with having compassion for all those unwanted parts of ourselves, all those imperfections that we don’t even want to look at.
Pema Chodron
Just, as I have traveled around from school to school, whether it’s project-based learning or an outward bound curriculum, it’s very hard to tell the difference between charters and public anymore. There’s no fine line.
David Brooks
I’ve recorded lots of projects, but just haven’t bothered to release them.
Steve Miller
You shouldn’t be afraid of failure – when something fails, you think, ‘What did I learn from that experience? I can do better next time.’ Then kill that project and move on to the next. Don’t get disappointed.
Niklas Zennstrom
Well, a special screening was set up for government officials, so they didn’t have to see the experience of going to see the film. They certainly aren’t going to the projects to see for themselves the situation.
Mathieu Kassovitz
I always think that the project I’m working on will be the best.
Patricia Urquiola
Every so often a book comes along that has the power to alter the course of history. Project Animal Farm is that potent.
John Robbins
It’s really fun to go back and forth from acting projects to directing projects. You don’t have as much responsibility when you’re acting, but you have more fun. But then you miss having that responsibility, and so you go back and torture yourself and make a movie.
Katie Aselton
Let me tell you, if I could pick the project of all projects, it would probably be Kate Gosselin because if I can help Kate find a man? I can help anybody!
Niecy Nash
I grew up in the projects and I know how important it is for kids to have hope.
Carlos Mencia
Shall I project a world?
Thomas Pynchon
I do pick my projects very meticulously. I want my projects to be meaningful.
Shohreh Aghdashloo
My work is one of my passions, so I want to treat it with great importance, whatever the project or role.
Danielle Cormack
One of the traditional methods of imposing statism or socialism on a people has been by way of medicine. It’s very easy to disguise a medical program as a humanitarian project, most people are a little reluctant to oppose anything that suggests medical care for people who possibly can’t afford it.
Ronald Reagan
Fashion is not like the movie business, where you can have two great projects in a row and then say, “You know what? I’m going to take off eight months.” What am I going to tell people? Wear last year’s clothes?
Michael Kors
Getting a project started is like moving a ship. It takes a lot of energy to build up momentum.
Susan Collins
We must go through every area of the federal budget to isolate waste and abandoned projects.
James Lankford
I grew up in the projects in Brooklyn, and I consider myself lucky and blessed to be where I am – just working.
Tracy Morgan
I guess confidence is the only thing that I take from project to project, but I’m always open to learning everybody’s style – the director, the actor I’m working with.
Freida Pinto
I wake up every day and think about what I am to other people. What I am to the people I employ, who depend on me to wake up and do my job that day and keep this career going? I think about what I am to the kids who listen to my music and all the other people involved in this project.
Halsey
I guess what I get excited about when I’m thinking about projects is that toothy, complex area of goodness and badness and the gray areas of human behavior and existence.
Liz Garbus
We are pushing towards the dream of having our independent state with Jerusalem as its capital. If there is a real project that aims to resolve the Palestinian cause on establishing a Palestinian state on 1967 borders, under full Palestinian sovereignty, we will support it.
Ismail Haniyeh
The greatest thing has been that projects that were pipe dreams before ‘Whiplash’ are now feeling more realistic.
Damien Chazelle
I went to a Catholic high school and it seemed like every time I drew something for a class project, it either got thrown away by the teacher or something.
Mike Judge
It is always easier to talk about change than to make it.
Alvin Toffler
Entrepreneurs usually don’t listen to people. Trust them to do their job. Remember, you invested with the understanding the project was likely to fail.
Dave McClure
I seem to enjoy making my life miserable by taking on too many projects and always wishing I could put more time into all of them.
Colin Marston
When I talk to some of the younger filmmakers, they are so worried about their films that, eventually, this state of being worried reflects itself in and helps the final work. Whereas, with projects that are meticulously planned, you look at the end result and it is full of emptiness.
Abbas Kiarostami
We really enjoy that, having a relationship with writers, developing material and getting a director, actors, that we have kind of that family kind of as a group we’re going to do it together mentality in a project. Then the tough part is – so what actually goes has very little to do with us sometimes.
Philip Seymour Hoffman
I am confident that I am capable of leading projects, which are even complex.
Neeraj Kabi
I’d love to do a film with Michael Fassbender. He’s one of my heroes. I think he’s absolutely amazing and I would love to do a project with him.
Jack Reynor
Is there a better example of natural selection in action than ‘Project Runway?’
Jamais Cascio
I read a lot of books. Here are the books I’m using for my 9/11 project. [Wright gestures to three six-foot-long shelves of books.] As I read them I highlight certain passages. Then I have an assistant write down each quote on an index card and note where it came from.
Lawrence Wright
Generally, Hollywood makes the same stories over and over. I’ve never wanted to do the same thing twice. If a script doesn’t surprise me in some way, I simply can’t commit to the project.
Sherilyn Fenn
I’m not sure I’ll find acting satisfying creatively forever. If you get the good roles, it’s great – if you have the freedom to choose your projects and not just do anything and everything.
Francois Arnaud
I’m a project guy, but when my list of things to do gets too long or involved, it can stress me out to the point of catatonia. So I focus on the small stuff first and keep the larger picture as motivation – but not so close that it overwhelms.
Michael Lomenda
My husband has no desire to work with me. He gets paid a lot of money to write giant movies. He’s not into humoring me with my projects.
Busy Philipps
For the last 30 years our cinemas have been ruled by science fiction and horror. We’ve had some very good Fantasy films in that time period, but for my tastes I still haven’t seen fantasy done to absolute perfection. That is the hope I have in this project.
Harry Knowles
I think that because I’m overweight, [my] fantasy was lightness. So I project my fantasy to the clothes, and now all I do is light, light clothes because it’s the one thing I don’t have. That is why I’m too afraid to lose weight because then I might make heavy clothes.
Alber Elbaz
I’m in a position to work on good things. I’ve worked on shitty projects, in the past. But, it is what it is. I’m just taking it as it comes.
Jeremy Luke
I like the team effort of everyone pulling together to make one good project.
Gregg Sulkin
I do mostly British projects, and for family reasons and life reasons Britain’s my home, where I have a lovely garden.
Janet McTeer
I get beat up on every project.
Casper Van Dien
Obviously, despite hard work and heroic efforts, many dreams don’t come true. But if we don’t dare to dream and then throw muscle, heart, and soul into making the dream come true, then WoW Projects-and all of the emotional, intellectual, spiritual, and financial riches that they bring will surely NOT be our lot in life!
Tom Peters
Modernism in architecture went hand in hand with socialist and fascist projects to rid old Europe of its hierarchical past
Roger Scruton
I’ve been taking my time now between projects looking for stuff that has a little bit more substance, that isn’t surface. Some of the films that I’ve done in the past really were surface.
Christian Slater
I get involved with projects based on three parameters – the script, the actors involved and the director.
Dominic Monaghan
I find men’s clothing fascinating because sometime between, say, 1930 and 1936 a handful of basic shapes were created and still prevail as a sort of scale of expression, with which every man can project his own personality and his own dignity.
Yves Saint Laurent
I just want to try and be in projects that are exciting to me.
Kristen Wiig
Elia Kazan. He wrote my favorite book about filmmaking, ‘Elia Kazan: On Directing.’ There is a thing in the book that I do every time, it’s part of my production structure. He said when you’re hiring an actor, ask them what draws them to the project, and don’t lead them to the answer.
Mike Birbiglia
Most projects that I’ve done are really not about the project. They’re about what’s going on inside and around, that journey that we’re all on, and what I can do to help that journey further itself and be of encouragement to somebody.
Craig T. Nelson
I tend to worry about each “emergency” or unforeseen complication on all my projects. But there are so many! All of life is unforeseen! So I am learning that is the cycle of life – everything is cyclical and temporary and to get ok with that someday could be my greatest achievement.
Kristin Bauer van Straten
The mission of Tom Peterson and Catholics Come Home to bring souls home to Jesus and the church is critically important during this challenging time in our history. I fully support this New Evangelization project.
Rick Warren
Film is the best way to capture an image and project that image. It just is, hands down.
Christopher Nolan
We need to talk. All of us About what we’re going to do now.” “I was going to watch Project Runway.
Cassandra Clare
Do I believe, for example, that by using magic I could fly? No. How would you get around gravity? Impossible. Do I believe that I might be able to project my consciousness into a very, very vivid simulation of flying? Yeah. Yes, I’ve done that. Yes, that works.
Alan Moore
As a kid, I was always building things. My father had a shop in the house, and we built things – we were kind of a project family. I started out as a painter, and then painting led to cinema, and in cinema, you get to build so many things, or help build them.
David Lynch
It’s weird talking about projects as an actor because you’re so in them. I would prefer to write a paper and deliver it to everyone via e-mail.
Kristen Stewart
I think we simply all like to project ourselves into somebody else – somebody who is better-looking, richer, smarter. It’s comforting. It’s escapism, and that, of course, is what the movies are supposed to be all about. Ultimately, I think it’s just part of human nature to pretend.
Richard D. Zanuck
The best project is one that asks a novel question.
Walter Gilbert
I remember that already as a child I was often intensely interested in things, obsessed by ideas and projects in many areas, and in these topics I learned much on my own, reading books.
Christiane Nusslein-Volhard
Every labourer is a father, his labour is his child. Choose your project carefully and achieve it worthily
Haile Selassie
I teach a lot – I teach at the UCLA and USC graduate film programs – and a lot of those projects are my students’ projects that I act in or I do a cameo.
James Franco
I felt really comfortable [on The Maze Runner]. From day one, I loved the script and the story, and I thought it could be something really cool and interesting and original, in this generation of regurgitated projects and sequels and stuff, so I’m proud to be part of it.
Dylan O’Brien
I have long been a proponent of a guest-worker program between the United States and Mexico, and in particular I have proposed that Arizona would be an ideal location for a pilot project.
Janet Napolitano
I’m spending all my time and energy on the project at hand.
Eric Bana
I really had the right nose for making the right decisions, in terms of which projects to do and which projects to stay away from. The people that I ended up becoming very close to in my career are the guys who inspire me.
Gregory Nicotero
If the kids did want to get into showbiz then so be it, but I would never project anything on to my children.
Sadie Frost
If you look at the international markets, for projects that are capital-intensive, the minute the construction phase is completed and production is supposed to start, normally all these loans get refinanced.
Arundhati Bhattacharya
The body is not a thing, it is a situation: it is our grasp on the world and our sketch of our project
Simone de Beauvoir
I think everyone in Hollywood works on multiple things because you never know what’s going to happen with your projects.
Carlton Cuse
A long, healthy, and happy life is the result of making contributions, of having meaningful projects that are personally exciting and contribute to and bless the lives of others.
Stephen Covey
If having true love and love that is expressive and free outside of work affects a project where you have to be restrained and in denial and fixed and closed off. This doesn’t mean you go out and just destroy your love outside of your life and kind of mirror your movie.
Heath Ledger
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead
A dream project is anything I do when I’m awake.
Charles Fleischer
But people who think they can project themselves into deafness are mistaken because you can’t. And I’m not talking about imagining what a deaf person’s whole life is like I even mean just realizing what it is like for an instant.
Richard Masur
I never take on anything that is just for the money or just for, you know. I always have to connect with it in a very personal way because I believe the audience will sense whether I’m into it or not, so I don’t take on projects that I’m not really passionate about.
Deborah Cox
I usually have 10 different animation projects going at a time.
Tara Strong
People feel that building a rocket for Mars is an exciting project, but if you see the refugees around the world and the millions of homeless people, then for me it’s insulting that people are fantasizing about leaving planet Earth and going wherever.
Pedro Reyes
I think about the collaboration between writers and readers, but I also think about the collaboration between all the writers in a generation or in a country or across time contributing to this massive project of documenting and reimagining our world.
Emily Barton
Having portrayed English-speaking Indian characters in British and American projects, I have always wanted to use my mother tongue in an Indian film.
Art Malik
I firmly believe in the value of books: it’s the way to pass on our work, and it allows us to explore new ways to express our creativity. In this specific case, Mariano Vivanco shot some images of David for this project’s purpose.
Domenico Dolce
The transaction cost approach maintains that some projects are easy to finance by debt and ought to be financed by debt. These are projects for which physical-asset specificity is low to moderate.
Oliver E. Williamson
I got involved in lots of different areas round about 2007, 2008. Just working with lots of different people and stretching myself in different ways. I was working on art projects and working with other writers, just doing bits and pieces, trying to keep busy.
Stevie Jackson
In a certain way working in animation has become very democratic because now anyone with the right technology can at least prepare a project from home in order to attract investors. Some people can even set up a small home studio and start working.
Raul Garcia
Within NASA, the shuttle is perhaps the least-groundbreaking project. Recall that Apollo was about creating brand-new technologies that did something unprecedented – putting men on the moon. The shuttle is, by comparison, a relic designed to make going into orbit routine.
Nathan Myhrvold
Getting organized in the normal routines of life and finishing little projects you’ve started is an important first step toward realizing larger goals. If you can’t get a handle on the small things, how will you ever get it together to focus on the big things?
Joyce Meyer
Infrastructure projects create a lot of demand for material, services and manpower. It is a chain reaction; if the infrastructure growth slows down, it will hit overall demand. The supply side has to keep increasing to sustain growth.
Jamshyd Godrej
For all of us, self-briefing before going out or starting a project sharpens artistic wit.
Robert Genn
There are dozens of unfinished or aborted projects in my files, but I can only assume they don’t get done because they’re not robust enough to struggle through the birth process.
Grant Morrison
Ideas, Mike Jones, an engineer at Google explained, were like babies – everything about their environment said they shouldn’t exist. But they do. You can’t dwell on problems too early, or they will swamp the virtues and you will decide not to do the project.
Steven Levy
Everybody must have projects all the time. The maximum must be extracted from leisure … The whole of life must look like a job, and by this resemblance conceal what is not yet directly devoted to pecuniary gain.
Theodor Adorno
Learning that you have stamina is an excellent thing to know. If a project fails, I know I can pick myself up.
Eddie Izzard
That’s a great feeling to know that I’m going into a project that I have no idea what will become of that movie, but I really trust Ang Lee. And I really trusted Ron. It’s just really nice to work with people that you feel that way about.
Jennifer Connelly
For a mother the project of raising a boy is the most fulfilling project she can hope for.
Andrea Dworkin
I never had a “project.” I would go out and shoot, follow my eyes… I tried to capture with my camera, for others to see.
Helen Levitt
Sex is … scratching an itch Everything else is something we project on a very simple act. It’s the psychology, not the biology, that’s complicated.
Joy Browne
What excites me is to know I don’t have any limits, that it’s quite an open project, more open than I thought it could be. To have this freedom to try very different things. I listen to lots of music from every genre.
Neige
One can’t dull a project better than by discussing it repeatedly.
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
I will never stop working on Spanish-language projects because that’s my language, and because I’m a Latina and Mexican before anything else.
Kate del Castillo
In the early 1990s, when a lot of the developing world opened up to international capital flows… they ended up in very good long-term projects, but projects that weren’t going to pay off for five or 10 or 20 years.
Jeffrey Sachs
I mean, if you are directing actors to do one thing and then directing them to do something else entirely because the one thing you wanted them to do may not work, then you are just shattering their confidence in the project.
Atom Egoyan
In the housing projects, people talked of ways to reduce crime, relieve overcrowding, and they were good ideas that we plan to study, and possibly implement.
Jane Byrne
A well-functioning team of adequate people will complete a project almost regardless of the process or technology they are asked to use (although the process and technology may help or hinder them along the way).
Alistair Cockburn
What I hope in my ideal world is that with each project, I’ll either get to work with a really great script that would force me to grow, or work with a really great actor who will make me better.
Laura Linney
I don’t see [ Trainspotting ] as an albatross, I see it more as a calling card. It’s got me out to Hollywood, I’ve got a good agent, I’ve got a good manager, I’m getting a lot of work out there and doing a lot of stuff – getting a lot of film projects on the go.
Irvine Welsh
In any project the important factor is your belief. Without belief, there can be no successful outcome.
William James
I got into Goldman really by acquisition because I had gone – I grew up in east New York in the Linden Projects – I did go to fancy schools, but my resume wasn’t up to a Wall Street set of resumes. I went to college. I went to law school and practiced for a while.
Lloyd Blankfein
We need to learn to listen to what the people need and want and not try to impose on them a whole schema that they may not. This is historically difficult stuff: how do we balance the project of raising consciousness, advancing a vision of utopia, with the real and honest engagement in real-world experiments?
Gar Alperovitz
I like to have a project. I live to have something to waste my energy on, something to think about. To figure out like a puzzle.
Kelly Reichardt
A lot of artists are involved with fabrication. Artists today are making more objects and many of them need the participation of a dealer in order to facilitate and provide support for projects. So that has changed. But I don’t know if what it means to be an artist has really changed. I hope that it hasn’t.
Larry Gagosian
When I was 14 -years-old, I made this PowerPoint presentation, and I invited my parents into my room and gave them popcorn. It was called ‘Project Hollywood 2004’ and it worked. I moved to L.A. in January of 2004.
Emma Stone
Jocelyn Bell joined the project as a graduate student in 1965, helping as a member of the construction team and then analysing the paper charts of the sky survey.
Antony Hewish
I love the way she projects two facets: a visible persona and a subterranean one. She keeps her thoughts to herself; she seems to suggest that her secret, inner life is at least as significant as the appearance she gives.
Francois Truff
aut
When more Chinese started coming after the Gold Rush, employed on large projects like the Pacific Railroad, anti-Chinese sentiment became shrill.
Karan Mahajan
I’ve started a project called Planet Art. The purpose will be to remind people where I really believe we came from, which was a creative planet, and that everybody can be autonomous through their art.
Meredith Brooks
I’m not an actress who’s a fan of gratuity, so I don’t seek projects that have nudity for nudity’s sake. I don’t know any actors who do, unless they’re in ‘Spartacus.’
Lara Pulver
I think projects find me. It’s really interesting. Everything I’ve done, from “The Truman Show,” the “Eternal Sunshine” to “Yes Man” and “Bruce Almighty,” always come into my life at the perfect time.
Jim Carrey
It is extraordinary that whole populations have no projects for the future, none at all. It certainly is extraordinary, but it is certainly true.
Gertrude Stein
A lot of times you have to dip into the independent world to find the really great projects and the really great scripts. They’re out there – you just have to search hard.
A. J. Cook
The trust we build over the years if of tremendous help to me when I start in a new project and need to find associates.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand
I can easily say “no” to a project if the script isn’t great, but when the script is good, then I start asking the other questions. Who’s going to direct it? Who’s the creator? Who are the actors? When are we shooting? Where is it shooting? All that kind of stuff.
Dominic Monaghan
I travel around the world constantly promoting my projects and endorsing products. Yes, I do get paid to go to parties; in fact, I’m the person who started the whole trend of paid appearances. But when you see me at a party, I’m always working or promoting something.
Paris Hilton
I feel immensely blessed – not just that I’m working, but that I’m working on projects that I really care about and like. I’ve always been that way.
Corey Hawkins
Fashion never stops. There is always the new project, the new opportunity.
Carolina Herrera
When I’m playing with the band or playing with some projects or some of my own stuff it’s about the musical approach. That would be the more turntablist approach to things of where it’s strictly about music.
Kid Koala
I’m only interested in people engaged in a project of self-transformation.
Susan Sontag
My greatest love in life is to develop projects. I just get a huge kick out of that. I’ve been doing it since ever I could.
Andrew Forrest
The way in which a society organizes the life of its members … is one “project” of realization among others. But once the project has become operative in the basic institutions and relations, it tends to become exclusive and to determine the development of the society as a whole.
Herbert Marcuse
Perception is naturally surpassed toward action; better yet, it can be revealed only in and through projects of action. The world is revealed as an “always future hollow”, for we are always future to ourselves.
Jean-Paul Sartre
I think painting has that unique potential to project opposing viewpoints.
Joe Bradley
I project love, music and love, and I pray for peace. A good song cuts straight to the heart; sometimes it doesn’t need to be too many lines – of course, I do love a good story.
Cass McCombs
I tell you, ‘Firefly’? Best job I ever had. Heartbroken when it was canceled, but had it not been canceled, I never would have gotten ‘Serenity’. I think ‘Serenity’ is the most incredible thing I’ve ever been able to actually get my hands on and do. I can’t even tell you how much love I have for that project.
Nathan Fillion
When to use iterative development? You should use iterative development only on projects that you want to succeed.
Martin Fowler
50 Cent is a metaphor for “change”. But originally it was a gangster from Fort Greene Projects named 50 Cent and I took the name when he passed and because he’s not active, I thought it’d be cool to take it.
Curtis Jackson
I hope I’m as graceful and gracious as [my parents] are. It’s hard for me to project how I’m gonna be if I make it to 86.
George W. Bush
It’s just what I am. When I am in the zone making one movie, I just didn’t want to read anything else or do anything else, so I don’t really develop projects.
Ang Lee
If I retain any freshness of approach, it’s by going slowly having long intervals between finished projects.
Lorrie Moore
Sometimes, being a feminist artist, there are times where I’m in a position where I just want to feel like I’m saying all the right things politically, or I feel like I have to mention my own project over other people’s projects. But I don’t do that anymore. I just want to be off the cuff and honest.
Kathleen Hanna
Union of religious sentiments begets a surprising confidence, and ecclesiastical establishments tend to great ignorance and corruption; all of which facilitate the execution of mischievous projects.
James Madison
I love jotting down ideas for my blog, so I doodle or take notes on all kinds of stuff that inspires me: the people I meet, boutiques I visit, a florist that just gave me a great idea for an interior-design project, things like that.
Maria Sharapova
I think at the beginning of a project, you decide if you’re in love with the idea and what it’s about, or what you think it’s about at that time at least. Then you commit to it, and once you’ve commit to it no matter what, no matter how many self doubts you have, you’re in it. The ship’s sailed, you can’t turn around.
Spike Jonze
Bodybuilding has been the tool that single-handedly taught a little black boy from the projects to use his mind to achieve success. it taught me to see things for what they can be. I had 17-inch arms; I imagined them to be 24 inches. The power of my mind allowed me to achieve what I imagined.
Kai Greene
This project is so important because it’s going to create an environment to inspire people. The RIBA believes that here in the UK we can design buildings and places that bring out the very best in people and motivate them. There is a real desire to see this project happen.
Ruth Reed
My fans — when I see them somewhere, outside my concerts — I get that, that vibe. They’re really supporting my projects and everything, because it’s a first time that a Turkish singer is, you know, able to express himself out of Turkey.
Tarkan
There’s always a project around, but you have to pick and choose.
Dustin Clare
Every project for me is a risk that I bet on. I believe my senses, and hopefully it will be successful. But sometimes you make it, and sometimes you fail.
Stephen Chow
I think being a doctor is really hard, and it’s really this thankless, never-ending job. It’s not even that you get done with a project. There are always sick people.
Jim Gaffigan
In the end it is the musician who actually plays the notes. The impresario – or the project leader – is only there to make sure that happens. That is a very different type of management mind-set.
John Kao
Good parts just don’t fall off trees. I try to be very careful about what sort of projects I attack. There’s an audience out there that expects high standards from me.
David Jason
A truly common culture is not one in which we all think alike, or in which we all believe that fairness is next to godliness, but one in which everyone is allowed to be in on the project of cooperatively shaping a common way of life.
Terry Eagleton
I’ve started researching online journals for the project. Thanks for decoding Dr. Heller’s notes before sending them to me. If you’d have forwarded them to me without a translation, I’d be searching for a tall building/overpass/water tower from which to yell “goodbye cruel world.
Tammara Webber
Private enterprise in the history of civilization has never led large, expensive, dangerous projects with unknown risks. That has never happened because when you combine all these factors, you cannot create a capital market valuation of that activity.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The cause of laughter is simply the sudden perception of the incongruity between a concept and the real project.
Arthur Schopenhauer
Let’s just say I decided that while my son is young I don’t want to do projects that would take me away for months.
Karen Allen
My most important projects have been the building and maintaining of schools and medical clinics for my dear friends in the Himalaya and helping restore their beautiful monasteries, too.
Edmund Hillary
You can’t take a dying project, sprinkle it with the magic pixie dust of “open source,” and have everything magically work out.
Jamie Zawinski
I think my Buddhist practice has a profound influence on my life and encompasses my creative projects
Duncan Sheik
We have no right to pick out all that is noblest and fairest in man, to project these qualities into space, and to call them God. We only thus create an ideal figure, a purified, ennobled, ‘magnified’ Man.
Annie Besant
I am making use of social media as a marketing tool. It’s a great way to market yourself and your projects. It’s a free marketing tool.
CeCe Peniston
An honest politician has no goodies to toss around. This limits his effectiveness profoundly, because political power in India is dispersed throughout a multi-tiered federal structure; a local official who has not been paid off can sometimes stop a billion-dollar project.
Aravind Adiga
It’s important to me that people hear my music on its own merit and not in relation to another project I’ve done. Ultimately, the music has its own energy and message and stands on its own.
Bryce Dessner
The road is long fro the project to its completion.
Moliere
I put projects together. I put people together.
Bill Laswell
Trying to apply formal methods to all software projects is just as bad as trying to apply code-and-fix development to all projects.
Steve McConnell
I’ve been on the other side of the table many times, trying to get people to be sympathetic to projects, and I’ve been the victim of that kind of intense kindness masking extreme stupidity.
Tilda Swinton
I think for me to find that project is going to be something that I’m going to have to develop for myself.
Nia Long
The way I look at a solo project is, I create what I want with whoever I want.
Sebastian Bach
The process is intense and the producers, who are intelligent men, are bringing in new people for a fresh look at a complicated project that has been in the making for 10 years
Ednita Nazario
I have done lots of music projects in my life and some of them I am more proud of than others.
Ben Barnes
I always tend to think, even in residential projects, about what a space is being asked to do – where is it located, what are the circumstances, where can I attack the problem, so to speak. How can you create a narrative for people moving through it? How can you convey its character?
Annabelle Selldorf
I’m trying to simplify my life, I guess that’s my latest project.
Jeremy Jones
Television and movies just take so long. If you pitch a show or develop a project, it can be a year before your show even gets on the air, if it gets picked up. Just the concept of “I had this idea” and within a week it was in the world, that was a part of why it felt weirdly empowering as a performer.
Chris Hardwick
The things you’re passionate about and interested in, get experience with them by going deep on projects. I would encourage science projects, plays. Pursue science, math, writing, history – the 21st century demands a lot of cross-disciplinary thinking.
Megan Smith
After working as a producer on many pop, electronica and some soundtrack, incidental music projects, I became more focused on film and TV scores.
Paul Wardingham
From an acting perspective, I would say that you should always try to make your own stuff. Always be ambitious about your own projects and always know better than anyone else what you’re good at.
Michael Urie
I don’t want euro bonds that serve to mutualize the entire debt of the countries in the euro zone. That can only work in the longer-term. I want euro bonds to be used to finance targeted investments in future-oriented growth projects. It isn’t the same thing. Let’s call them ‘project bonds’ instead of euro bonds.
Francois Hollande
With every project I start out on, there’s no footage. It’s always a big slog to find the footage.
Alex Gibney
I have to be more universal than my projects, but no less innovative.
Ian Schrager
Whether a project is large or small, it doesn’t matter much to me as long as I feel I can serve the story as best as possible.
James Ponsoldt
The Phoenix Project is a must read for business and IT executives struggling with the growing complexity of IT.
Jim Whitehurst
[ Lady Susan novel by Jane Austen is] extremely difficult to adapt. I worked on it for years, for, like, ten years, before I started showing it to people. This was my back-burner project.
Whit Stillman
The Keystone XL project has built strong safety measures into its design with the newest technology. Additionally, 80 percent of the new Canadian oil sands are being developed ‘in situ,’ meaning, it has a similar carbon footprint and emissions as conventional oil wells.
John Hoeven
For me, it’s about becoming a mogul, owning my own projects, and establishing myself as a funding producer. That’s what’s big to me. The movies and all that stuff are great, but the fact that I’m in a position to do what I want to do, however I want to do it and when I want to do it is bigger.
Kevin Hart
My favorite actor that I look up to is Joseph Gordon-Levitt. His career is something I look up to, I just want to be that guy. He’s always part of projects that have a lot of soul and that’s what I want to do as an actor.
Grant Gustin
My name was given to me. I didn’t just decide to change it one day. But I ran with it to reflect a more peaceful and positive attitude for my new Reincarnated project. The Snoop Dogg name is so connected to hip-hop, and I didn’t want to change that. Hip-hop raised me, and I would never turn my back on it.
Snoop Dogg
My record company had to beg me to stop filmin’ music videos in the projects. No matter what the song was about, I had ’em out there.
Nas
As I progressed further with my project, it became obvious that it was really unimportant where I chose to photograph. The particular place simply provided an excuse to produce work… you can only see what you are ready to see – what mirrors your mind at that particular time.
George A Tice
The number of unfinished construction projects has increased significantly. A lot of these are not covered with any security
Tatyana Golikova
I think it’s not a big secret that I like to work a lot. I really go out for projects when I find things I’m passionate about.
Clifton Collins, Jr.
You learn something from everything you do. With every project I’ve ever done, I’ve always treated it like I’m still in school.
Kim Basinger
I try to block a couple of hours of unscheduled time every day so that I can work on the day’s most important projects.
Logan Green
When you start out on a project as an actor, you know, you approach the character from the standpoint of maybe writing a list – even if it’s a mental list that you make – of the adjectives that the character has or that character possesses.
Omari Hardwick
If I’m going to pour that kind of love and energy and sweat and heartache, all that juju into something, I’m going to lean into my own projects before someone else’s.
Lake Bell
What you need, what you deserve, is a guy who adores you for what you are. Who doesn’t see you as a project, but a prize. you know?
Sarah Dessen
You’ve never reacted to someone else. You project meaning onto nothing. And you react to the meaning you’ve projected
Byron Katie
I don’t really look for specific types of projects any more. I’m not taking care of a career anymore. I’m just having fun acting.
Kurt Russell
From the moment you are clear in your vision of yourself and how you project that vision in your family, your community and in the world, that’s all that matters.
Angelique Kidjo
My favorite programming languages are Lisp and C. However, since around 1992 I have worked mainly on free software activism, which means I am too busy to do much programming. Around 2008 I stopped doing programming projects.
Richard Stallman
Don’t worry that you can’t seem to come up with sure billion dollar winners at first. Just do projects for yourself for fun. You’ll get better and better.
Steve Wozniak
Solyndra’s failure isn’t a reason for the government to give up on alternative energy, any more than the failure of Pets.com during the Internet bubble means that venture capital should steer clear of tech projects.
James Surowiecki
If you are the writer/director especially, no one cares more about the project than you do. You know it in and out. You created it. So always listen to input but don’t be afraid to veto and fight decisions that you know instinctively are wrong.
Zoe Cassavetes
You never know when you start a project just how good it can be.
Jenifer Lewis
Because I was a woman, I was vulnerable. It was easy to vilify me and project me as a woman who was not following the tradition of a ‘good African woman.’
Wangari Maathai
The one thing that I have learned from all these projects is that the key to transformative change is to make the system see itself. That’s why deep data matters. It matters to the future of our institutions, our societies, and our planet.
Otto Scharmer
See who else is interested and join other people’s projects that have already started that you like. You don’t always have to reinvent the wheel and start your own thing.
Kathleen Hanna
I haven’t been worried about my image so much as I have been trying to find projects to push myself further than before.
Cameron Diaz
Usually when I make music, in my head I’m like ‘this isn’t Grimes, this is just some other project that you can release later, so there’s no pressure and it doesn’t matter and no-one’s ever gonna hear it’.
Grimes
When I was eleven, I got cast in the last directorial project of Christopher Reeve.
Vanessa Marano
I’m usually two projects ahead. It’s hard for me because I don’t have a really long attention span.
Joe Swanberg
No one nowadays talks about the absolute, not even people with firm and deep religious convictions. The whole Hegelian project has no resonance for us, as it once had for the Germans in the 1820s and the British and Americans around the 1880s.
Frederick C. Beiser
Creativity runs across many categories in life, from the arts-and-crafts project a mum or dad does with their kids, to the bestselling author’s manuscript, to the designs of the hairdresser, to the creations of the computer programming genius.
Tabatha Coffey
I dont like talking about any projects till they solidify and take off.
Nita Ambani
Never, ever, ever wear anything you are uncomfortable in. Because that is what you’ll project: ‘I look like a fool.’
Tom Ford
I decided I could develop a toy and get some revenue from that and then use that revenue to really become an inventor and work on some of the more challenging projects I had in mind.
Lonnie Johnson
The success of any development project is based on encouraging people to shoulder their own responsibilities and become aware of their own capacities, their rights too, rather than providing them with ready-made solutions.
Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan
The independent project, in a general way, requests a constant work to spread, in the traditional way and in the alternative circuit. It is a fight… but I believe that it is the way.
Katya Chamma
An hour is not merely an hour, it is a vase full of scents and sounds and projects and climates.
Marcel Proust
Your first projects aren’t the greatest things in the world, and they may have no money value, they may go nowhere, but that is how you learn – you put so much effort into making something right if it is for yourself.
Steve Wozniak
I have kept a part of Catalina Productions going, through which I develop a few projects just for me.
Gregory Harrison
Occasionally, I would focus on a particular school project and become obsessed with, what seemed to my mother, to be trivial details instead of apportioning the time I spent on school work in a more efficient way.
Steven Chu
The Ninety-Ninety Rule of Project Schedules – the first ninety percent of the task takes ninety percent of the time, and the last ten percent takes the other ninety percent.
Arthur Bloch
Everything I do that I’m enthusiastic about. This is genuine enthusiasm. If I don’t – I mean I’ve done other projects that I have not been a fan of until I realized I was doing it and I wasn’t really there. And I don’t do those anymore.
Michael Novak
Basically, managing is about influencing action. Managing is about helping organizations and units to get things done, which means action. Sometimes, managers manage actions directly. They fight fires. They manage projects. They negotiate contracts.
Henry Mintzberg
Every project has challenges, and every project has its rewards.
Stephen Schwartz
When someone offers me a job or a project, I always ask myself, “What does it tell me about the world?” and “Have I seen it before?” Two good questions.
Thomas Bidegain
The combination of threads, remote-procedure-call interfaces, and heavyweight object-oriented design is especially dangerous… if you are ever invited onto a project that is supposed to feature all three, fleeing in terror might well be an appropriate reaction.
Eric S. Raymond
Should 50 per cent of Telefilm’s projects be helmed, produced, or written by women? I think so.
Sarah Gadon
Some infrastructure projects clearly require massive, coordinated investment – interstate highways or a new trans-Hudson tunnel, for instance. Others don’t have to. We should be unafraid of pilot projects and learning.
Cathy Engelbert
I’ve definitely enjoyed myself more on the projects where I’ve played a good person, rather than on the projects where I’ve played somebody who is morally compromised.
Domhnall Gleeson
I’m kind of getting more excited about developing my own stuff, or getting involved early in projects and doing my best to make things that I care about happen.
Elliot Page
I’ve started a little independent record label called ‘Six String Productions’ and recorded a couple of tunes, and I hope to do some more with some future artists next year. It’s a real passion project of mine.
Tom Felton
Because they dream so strongly in themselves, their superiority and women’s inferiority, they project an image that a woman finds very, very difficult to fight against.
Frederick Lenz
No one ever said movies are for developing your range. Hardly anyone gets that opportunity. Which is why I think the stage is so good. It’s less bread, but you can play different types, and you can initiate your own projects.
Sal Mineo
I realize that ‘Postcards’ was like input, and ‘Ghostwriting’ was output. I had all these frustrations and feelings before I did those two projects. ‘Postcards’ was something that brought new life and creative inspiration into the record, while ‘Ghostwriting’ was relieving myself.
Jens Lekman
This weird thing happens when you’re in a movie that has some level of success. People start offering you all kinds of things, and they just expect you to do them because they’ll be good for your career. It’s not about the project’s integrity or anything like that.
Kristen Stewart
I love people like Kate Bush and Stevie Nicks and David Bowie – people that project themselves as characters and that contextualizes the music.
Tamaryn
Software projects fail for one of two general reasons: the project team lacks the knowledge to conduct a software project successfully, or the project team lacks the resolve to conduct a project effectively.
Steve McConnell
Just doing a project because its an opportunity wont create meaning. As an artist, I need something to communicate.
Marco Brambilla
Every project that I had an opportunity to do or chose to do, I wanted it to be different from the last thing I did, and I think that’s why I have a good, I had kind of a diverse kind of rГ©sumГ©.
Tony Shalhoub
It is easy to have a lot of paintings or projects hanging around that are ‘almost done.
Thomas Kinkade
Perhaps your challenge isn’t finding a better project or a better boss. Perhaps you need to get in touch with what it means to feel passionate. People with passion look for ways to make things happen.
Seth Godin
I don’t really have a domestic inclination. Even my apartment has a semblance of a storage facility. It’s just stacks, there are no bookshelves, just books and piles of stamp collections and weird little sewing and knitting projects.
Sufjan Stevens
To a greater or lesser degree, the project of the self becomes translated into one of the possession of desired goods and the pursuit of artificially framed styles of life. (…) Not just lifestyles, but self-actualisation is packaged and distributed according to market criteria.
Anthony Giddens
If you want me to be straight, gay, into monkeys, dating Kylie, whatever, I’m happy for people to project whatever onto me!
Darren Hayes
The real story of the Ground Zero mosque is that the project only became feasible because of the appalling and astonishing fecklessness of the officials who were charged with the reconstruction of the site and the neighborhood all the way back in 2001.
John Podhoretz
I’m the freaky version of that superhero who says, wherever there is injustice, I shall be there. Whenever there is a difficult project, I’d like to be there.
Guillermo del Toro
I have a large personal collection of pictures. For every project, I choose images. Usually I don’t do this until I’ve done an extensive script breakdown and distilled the text down to poetic form. I have to plant enough seeds so that there will be vibration.
Christine Jones
Producing is very much like running a business, where you find the project, you find the different people involved, you put the elements together, and you make sure they all work together well.
Catherine Bell
Today is what’s thought about long ago. Now today we have to project, think, experiment, prototype the future.
Hartmut Esslinger
My music has always been important regardless of other projects.
Mya
When a new writer comes onto a project, he’ll make wholesale changes just to mark the territory or for greater credit.
Jon Spaihts
I am not a finisher, I am a starter. And I am always thinking, what is the next project.
Peter Eisenman
Hunts Point Revival’s reuse of the existing structure as part of the new development was conceptually bold and challenging. Overall, the project contained a good blend of creative sustainable design elements. The solar room for heating and ventilation was particularly creative and convincing.
Edward Mazria
We try to organize the world, which isn’t organized the way our brains want to organize it. We tell stories about the people in our lives, we project ideas onto them. We project relationships with people, we make our lives into stories. I don’t think we can avoid doing that.
Charlie Kaufman
President Obama projects a strong offense, but he faces a rebellious Congress focused on state’s rights.
Jesse Jackson
He (Saddam Hussein) has not developed any significant capability with respect to weapons of mass destruction. He is unable to project conventional power against his neighbours.
Colin Powell
There are projects I’ve done, such as ‘Queen,’ where I played Halle Berry and Danny Glover’s son, where I’m so extremely proud of the work that I did that I will sit down and watch that any time.
Jussie Smollett
The wilderness that has come to us out of the eternity of the past, we have the boldness to project into the eternity of the future.
Howard Zahniser
Yeah, it was always a low-budget passion project. It’s my directing debut. I’ve always wanted to make an improv movie because I have so much experience in it, but it’s not a big studio movie. It was an experiment that turned out better than I thought.
Matt Walsh
I like involved projects.
Tori Amos
I love every aspect of the performing arts and can’t imagine myself doing anything different. I give my heart to every project.
Kelly Stables
It is absurd to imagine that any child will be able to earn a living, let alone contribute to resolving our world’s complex problems, without knowing how to read and write. My foundation supports the National Writing Project so that teachers can be more effective in their efforts to improve literacy for all students.
Isabel Allende
As much as I can and am able to, with the projects that are presented to me, I try to just really choose things that are challenging and are something I haven’t tackled before.
Michelle Monaghan
Because the idea of climate change is so plastic, it can be deployed across many of our human projects and can serve many of our psychological, ethical and spiritual needs…We need to ask not what we can do for climate change, but to ask what climate change can do for us.
Mike Hulme
I have other projects to do. I try not to let that documentation interfere with my present day.
Ian MacKaye
You go home happy, you go to work happy, you make a better project because everybody loves it and loves each other.
Aldis Hodge
One of my teachers once said that the way you know you’re on the right path is that it works. Now, that doesn’t mean you don’t run into blocks and brick walls, but it does mean that you can find a way around them or find a way to change yourself or your project in order to find the flow again and have it work.
James Redfield
When I’m choosing projects to be a part of it’s always a combination of so many different things. The primary thing is the director. But a very important element is, is it different enough from anything else I’ve ever done, or what I’ve last done.
Helen Mirren
Alice and I, we’d met before, but we were able to kind of sit and chat on the set of Dark Shadows, and talk about maybe writing some songs together. We started doing that, and then one thing led to another and it became this Vampire project – because he was telling stories about all those days, which were fascinating.
Johnny Depp
Bankers cannot afford to be concerned with only the economic aspects of projects. There may be serious implications on the natural environment, the urban environment, on human culture.
Arthur Erickson
What I wanna do with Methods is keep that around as sorta my freak out, creative free for all- anything goes project.
Tommy Lee
We sell to an affluent demographic, so it is important for us to project a professional image.
Brad Gillis
I don’t really feel pressure. I’m so distracted by what we’re doing; I’m doing this four-acre project, it’s just absorbing all my attention. Before you know it we’re onto the next project, and so on and so forth.
Tavares Strachan
Don’t write something that is your passion project because all it will do is get the passion stomped out of you.
Thomas Lennon
I’m very interested in film, but any more involvement would happen organically. I’m not really seeking anything out, just looking at projects that come up that interest me.
Tavi Gevinson
It’s nice to be asked to do good projects.
Dougray Scott
The most durable thing in writing is style. It is a projection of personality and you have to have a personality before you can project it. It is the product of emotion and perception.
Raymond Chandler
Everyone knows of great projects that were too dependent on a charismatic individual, or simply too expensive to be replicated.
Geoff Mulgan
Women and men just aren’t that different. Oh, we’re different in some intriguing ways, and it can be fun to band together for all-gal or all-guy projects. But when it comes to the tragic mess Christ came to heal, we’re pretty much the same.
Frederica Mathewes-Green
Most of the time, you find that the smaller the budget, the more the project is about something substantive.
Robert Carlyle
With documentary-film projects, you hope you highlight an area of concern people haven’t thought about before. A lot of times, I’m asking myself – ‘This seems to be a significant problem. What can be done that hasn’t been done?
Paul Allen
The rest of the songs on the album [Mortal City ] have spare arrangements on them. Steve [Miller], really loved that. He’d just come off of a project with someone who basically had to mask the fact that there were no songs there with production. He said, “Oh, my God, you have real songs here!”
Dar Williams
I’d love to act more. I’ve had to turn down multiple movies because I was on tour, but it’s encouraging to know that someday there might be the right role, the right timing. And I’ve been writing a lot of music, so hopefully very soon I’ll have recorded a project of my own. I also want to get a boat and open a restaurant.
Joe Jonas
Some of these things I saw in foreign films – African films, Cuban films – long before I decided to really go on this course as an actor. I started to think about what values I saw in those films that I wanted to bring to my projects
Danny Glover
Organizations are about putting ideas through one or more types of gating procedures. In this way, ideas go from being a whim to becoming a project, from being a “skunk works” effort to becoming an official, mainstream effort, from being an unfounded program to a funded process, and so on.
John Kao
Most independent filmmakers in Britain and North America work for commercial crews and then have their own projects when they’ve got enough money saved up to do so.
Ann Macbeth
As I teach, I project the condition of my soul onto my students, my subject, and our way of being together.
Parker J. Palmer
I’m focusing on my efforts behind the camera. I’m doing some producing and directing so that I can make projects for all of the amazing, talented actors and crew that I know.
Jonathan Keltz
In art or architecture your project is only done when you say it’s done. If you want to rip it apart at the eleventh hour and start all over again, you never finish. I was one of those crazy creatures.
Maya Lin
I don’t know if it’s a misconception, but I often get asked why I always make stories about family and love. Over the years, IВґve also directed commercials, a children’s film, and TV – dramas (both comedic and darker), because I always feel the urge to go in a different direction with my next project.
Anne Sewitsky
If you look at what I do, there’s no consistency. The consistency is that there is no consistency. I do projects that are good and not so good.
Michael Keaton
The extraordinary power of influence is now within everyone’s reach. Recent graduates, executive assistants, project managers, and business leaders can all benefit from Monarth’s simple steps for ‘getting everyone to follow your lead.’
Marshall Goldsmith
A lot of people don’t feel like doing very much. Or one project is really all they can do at one time. I can have five or six things going at the same time. It doesn’t bother me or tire me, but sometimes it does rattle me.
Debbie Reynolds
I want to be inspired by the characters that I play and excited by the projects that I do.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Id like to do Broadway if the right project came along, but my mission in life is that I want to help change peoples lives.
Derek Hough
It was a terrible psychic blow… Ebbets Field was replaced by a housing project. How could a father tell his son where Duke Snider used to hit one? Point out Apartment 5Q?
Joe Flaherty
I’m just happy to do projects I’m passionate about.
Selena Gomez
I want to make something I would find joy in consuming. Personally, I enjoy those projects that are worth me investing time and energy and thought into, to find a work that has more to say than will fit in a 4 minute song.
Crowder
You always project on the outside how you feel on the inside.
Denis Waitley
There are good reasons why we don’t want everyone to learn nuclear physics, medicine or how financial markets work. Our entire modern project has been about delegating power over us to skilled people who want to do the work and be rewarded accordingly.
Evgeny Morozov
Culture is more and more consciously becoming a project carried out in the domain of language by, for instance, propaganda both governmental and commercial.
Terence McKenna
Since I started making art, I’ve always had some kind of project that was really about and for other people, because I think I just need that balance to feel sane myself — you know?
Miranda July
I like to go into the studio and start work on a project when it’s time. I don’t like to do it too early or too late.
Eric Benet
We originally developed ‘The Client List’ along with Lifetime as a TV movie – my manager and I became partners on the project. Then, we brought in Howard Braunstein on the project and produced it along with Lifetime.
Jennifer Love Hewitt
I am excited to be on set. I love what I do. As long as I have that feeling, then I’m gonna stick to it. As long as I’m lucky enough to get projects and keep working, I will always be grateful for it.
Michelle Trachtenberg
My project could be only to photograph as I felt and desired, to regulate a pleasant form of living, to get up in the morning-free, to feel the trees, the grass, the water, sky or buildings, people-everything that affects us; and to photograph that which I saw and have always felt.
Harry Callahan
It was easy to persecute me without people feeling ashamed. It was easy to vilify me and project me as a woman who was not following the tradition of a ‘good African woman’ and as a highly educated elitist who was trying to show innocent African women ways of doing things that were not acceptable to African men.
Wangari Maathai
I am a particular fan of integrative exercise – that is, exercise that occurs in the course of doing some productive activity such as gardening, bicycling to work, doing home improvement projects and so on.
Andrew Weil
Where do these images comes from and where do they return? What is it that projects these images? How is it that we are the screen? How is it that we have forgotten that we are the Self and that nothing but the Self exists?
Frederick Lenz
I feel like every project that I’ve been doing, I’ve learned something about myself. It’s like I’ve cracked something, or my vision of myself has gotten wider. I’m just learning and growing, and overcoming the fear.
Agyness Deyn
My m.o. as far as choosing projects is I really try not to work. I try to not do the scripts that are offered me.
Jeff Bridges
My capital budget maintains my commitment to the education of children, health of the Chesapeake Bay, and safety of all Maryland citizens. We will continue to focus on the five pillars of my Administration as we build today and look forward to the projects of the future.
Bob Ehrlich
I was looking for projects, as you always are, and I read this scene . . . and I’m in the Hollywood Hills. So I thought, ‘This is interesting.’ You have this setup that seems to be based in some reality and you can only wonder where Black’s going to go with this.
Val Kilmer
I wouldn’t be where I am without these Funny or Die videos in general. When I was first starting out, I would take roles just to get the experience, but not exactly because I believed in the projects I was doing.
Dave Franco
Now undoubtedly, we face some very British challenges when it comes to infrastructure. We rightly cherish our back yards and green spaces, and we’ll defend them passionately when projects are announced. We live in a democracy, and we like to debate these things, often for many years.
Evan Davis
And I love doing my own projects; that’s what I’ve always wanted to do.
Stanley Tucci
The professional tackles the project that will make him stretch. He takes on the assignment that will bear him into uncharted waters, compel him to explore unconscious parts of himself. Is he scared? Hell, yes. He’s petrified.
Steven Pressfield
All public projects are mausoleums, not always in shapes, but always in cost.
Ayn Rand
If someone down-votes you, or you don’t get a like, or someone says something not cool, you project onto it the person or the people who have hurt you the most in life.
Bryce Dallas Howard
I’ve been rewritten on past projects and thought, ‘That’s not what she was – she was this really powerful woman, and there’s nothing wrong with that.’ I’m going to keep writing them, and hopefully people will start making them.
Allison Schroeder
I learned to focus my energy on high-quality, long-term projects rather than lower-quality projects with quicker payoffs.
Steven Pinker
