Whenever one reads of the determination of the species,

Whenever one reads of the determination of the species, or opens a book on natural science and history, in whatever language, one inevitably comes across the name of Linne.
Johannes Vilhelm Jensen
Schools and libraries are the twin cornerstones of a civilized society. Libraries are only good if people use them, like books only exist when someone reads them.
Nicholas Meyer
You have to go through your reads and you have to make smart decisions because if you start forcing it in to double coverage you will get into bad habits and that is when bad plays happen.
Matt Cassel
I feel like I’m making the right plays and right reads each and every night, so if I keep doing that the assists are going to come.
Collin Sexton
I might have some quibbles with the way the game is played today, but at its core, I know that hockey will always be hockey no matter what year the calendar reads.
Gordie Howe
I believe that patterns tend to repeat themselves and there are connections between the past and the present. There is the old proverb that reads, ‘You can’t know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been’. For me, history is like that. When you take history and combine it with myth, then you get mystery.
Ashwin Sanghi
There’s an old joke that politics is Hollywood for ugly people. An awful lot of the press coverage about Washington reads like coverage of Hollywood. Madonna is having some spat with Sean Penn. Who cares? And who cares which politician is mad at that politician?
Ted Cruz
I have one main reader, Miriam Gomez, my wife. She reads everything I write – I have not finished writing something and she is already reading it.
Guillermo Cabrera Infante
A man ought to read just as inclination leads him, for what he reads as a task will do him little good.
Samuel Johnson
To read Transtromer – the best times are at night, in silence, and alone – is to surrender to the far-fetched. It is to climb out of bed and listen to what the house is saying, and to how the wind outside responds. Each of his readers reads him as a personal secret.
Teju Cole
I’ve done all the table reads for Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow for all the pirate movies, because he’s just been doing other stuff, and I just love the whole Jack Sparrow thing he’s got going on; it is just genius, and I just think he has so much fun with it.
Owain Yeoman
Many photographers feel their client is the subject. My client is a woman in Kansas who reads Vogue. I’m trying to intrigue, stimulate, feed her. My responsibility is to the reader. The severe portrait that is not the greatest joy in the world to the subject may be enormously interesting to the reader.
Irving Penn
The inspiration of the Bible depends upon the ignorance of the gentleman who reads it.
Robert Green Ingersoll
Whatever I see, I trust my eyes, trust my reads, trust the guys running routes and kind of just let it go.
Kyler Murray
In comics, there are depths that don’t reveal themselves immediately, and the stuff that you might consider anal about ‘Watching the Watchmen’ – like the notes where I plot the rotation of a perfume bottle through the air – might not be particularly obvious to anyone who reads it.
Dave Gibbons
We have table reads for every episode of ‘Billions.’ The core cast is smaller than the core cast on ‘Orange Is the New Black,’ so in that sense, it has more of a theater vibe.
Asia Kate Dillon
The books that everybody admires are those that nobody reads.
Anatole France
No one reads my books until they’re finished because I don’t want feedback. It confuses me, and it changes things; if I get too much feedback, I get thrown off my path.
Zoe Foster Blake
I’m not a massive artist by any stretch of the imagination. Yes, I’ve been in papers and magazines, but you never have any idea if anyone actually reads it or pays any attention.
Ben Eine
The thing with Netflix is everyone who reads this article can go to Netflix, watch ‘Live in Oakland’ and come to D.C. and see me do a different show. It’s a constant source of people getting to know me.
Moshe Kasher
Oh, I think every author is inspired by all of the books that she reads.
Cornelia Funke
My landlady, who is only a tailor’s widow, reads her Milton; and tells me, that her late husband first fell in love with her on this very account: because she read Milton with such proper emphasis.
Karl Philipp Moritz
Any child who reads widely, often and for pleasure will inevitably make comparisons between what they’re reading, why they’re reading and how they’re reading.
Michael Rosen
As anyone who reads Marvel comics will tell you, it’s actually more important that you understand the people that are inside the mask, as opposed to the mask and the cowl or anything else like that.
Stephanie Savage
There’s certain people who have contacted me on Twitter, not realizing I am a human being who reads things sent to me directly. They’ve said, ‘I can’t stand her. I never watch more than a minute of her before switching off.’ It’s a bit like ‘give me a chance!’
Jenny Ryan
World Class players can lay down the toughest hands and play any two cards at any time without fear. Their reads are impeccable.
Chris Moneymaker
I am a health nut who juices daily, takes vitamins, stays active, works out, does yoga, goes to sweat lodges, eats healthy and reads up on nutrition and spirituality.
Sonja Morgan
I am Brianna Hildebrand; I play ‘Negasonic Teenage Warhead’. She is a 15 year old psychic – she reads the future – and she also is her own personal cannonball: she’s a warhead. So she runs at things and explodes at them, and she’s Colossus’ sidekick.
Brianna Hildebrand
I would be honored if someone reads my books and it inspires them to write their own work.
Alexandra Bracken
There’s a bookstore in New York where you could buy scripts, and I got addicted to them because they were easy, quick reads… and the pictures were so vivid.
Robbie Robertson
Peter Rabbit’s not a rabbit. Peter Rabbit is a proxy for the child who reads the book, and they imagine themselves in the rabbit’s position.
Chris Van Allsburg
It was my first big relationship and it was just very abusive. I wouldn’t give him the credit of naming him, if he ever reads this. But he was older, in the music business – or so he said.
Lisa Snowdon
I write the story that nobody reads. Someday, I’m going to write it in German to see if anyone notices.
Rick Reilly
I’m not the sort of person who reads much about himself.
Tony Harrison
Where one man reads the Bible, a hundred read you and me.
Dwight L. Moody
My mother reads tarot cards, actually, but I won’t let her read mine.
Sam Taylor-Johnson
When you’re comfortable, you’re more confident – I really believe that. If you’re walking around in a dress or a pair of shoes that are uncomfortable, it reads all over you.
Erin Wasson
Marry someone who flatters you. Because I’ve written 80 books since ‘War Horse’ but when my wife reads one, all she says is, ‘It’s quite good, but it’s not as good as ‘War Horse,’ is it?’
Michael Morpurgo
‘The Devil’s Dictionary’ reads like a collection of great Twitter posts. And as people do with tweets, they can swipe Bierce’s best lines and recite them as nearly their own. The reflected glory of reposting.
Victor LaValle
I don’t claim to have all the answers; after all, I’m just a comedian who reads a lot.
Adam Conover
The novel that an author writes is often not the novel that the reader reads, and most of the ‘messages’ in a novel are put there by the reader. There’s nothing wrong with that, of course. That’s how literature functions.
Ken Liu
So, just make the right reads and the ball will always come back around to you. Taking the right shots and not forcing anything. Just let the game slow down and play free.
Collin Sexton
I like the guy who reads. Being articulate is something that’s very important to me. But you need to know how to chop wood and fix a car and do guy things. I didn’t grow up with spectators. Nobody was a spectator.
Hilarie Burton
I get horrified when I have to do table reads with the whole cast, because there’s a lot of stuttering coming from me, so I have to do a lot of prep.
Malin Akerman
To be honest, there is a special gift for doing voice-overs, and the people who did the voices in the ‘SpongeBob’ cast are excellent at cartoon voice-overs, and they bring something extra to the reads.
Stephen Hillenburg
I’m sure most parents read to their children to explain what certain things mean. So books are a good way to convey a message to anybody. Everybody reads.
Joyce Meyer
Every poker player has ups and downs because luck is also involved. When a great poker player smashes, he’s making the right moves and making the right reads and he’s getting lucky.
Phil Hellmuth
Throughout my college years, I’d watch my sister squeal every Christmas as she unwrapped another ‘Buffy’ DVD set. I didn’t know much about the series, but I was filled with that obnoxious self-importance that comes from having decided to be an Academic Who Reads Serious Things.
Marie Rutkoski
I’m going to play the quarterback position the way coaches install the plays; I’m going to go through the reads just like they install it.
Ryan Tannehill
I may weep inconsolably when I hold a copy of ‘All I Know Now’ for the first time. I just hope that everyone who reads it enjoys it and finds some comfort in knowing that the journey through the ‘teen age’ is difficult for all of us and they’re definitely not alone.
Carrie Hope Fletcher
All of my characters are a little bit based on people I know in real life. You know when you do that you have to change the character a little bit in case your friend or your relative reads the book, because you don’t want them to know you wrote about them… They might get mad.
Meg Cabot
Much of the world’s moral compass is broken. The moral north reads south and the moral south reads north.
Dennis Prager
An SF author who reads only SF will have little new to contribute, but someone with a broader experience will bring more to the table.
Walter Jon Williams
The more one reads poetry, the less tolerant one becomes of any sort of verbosity, be that in political or philosophical discourse, be that in history, social studies or the art of fiction.
Joseph Brodsky
When the whole world reads your books, is there any other happiness for a writer? I am happy that my books are read in 57 languages. But I am focused on Istanbul not because of Istanbul but because of humanity. Everyone is the same in the end.
Orhan Pamuk
Literary novelists who have a strong handle on plot are often characterized as good vacation reads because they manage to transport you elsewhere, away from the petty facts of ordinary life.
Michelle Dean
Censorship ends in logical completeness when nobody is allowed to read any books except the books that nobody reads.
George Bernard Shaw
Like any other person who reads a ton of books, I hate many, many books. Oh, how I hate them. I have performed dramatic readings of the books I hate. I have little hate summaries. I have hate impressions. I can act out, scene by hateful scene, some of these books. I can perform silent hate charades.
Sarah Rees Brennan
I usually tape about 99 percent of my auditions at my house. I have a camera and record myself, and my mom reads the other lines off-camera. Then I send it to my agent and manager, and they send it to the casting director, and we see how it goes from there.
Lili Reinhart
Everything one reads is nourishment of some sort – good food or junk food – and one assumes it all goes in and has its way with your brain cells.
Lorrie Moore
America’s liberal arts universities have long been safe zones for leftist thinking, protected ivory towers for the pseudo-elite who earn their livings writing papers nobody reads about gender roles in the poetry of Maya Angelou.
Ben Shapiro
I am no theologian. I am a layman. I am among those who are preached to, and who listen. It is not for me to preach. I should not willingly forego being a listener, a man who reads the Gospels and then listens to what others say that our Lord meant. But sometimes a listener speaks out, and listens to his own voice.
Haniel Long
My first novel, ‘You Lost Me There,’ has been described as a beach read. Tough bracket, beach reads. There’s not much room for mistakes when you’re competing against the sun for a person’s attention.
Rosecrans Baldwin
Anyone who wants to be a centre-half would have to say that John Terry is a role model. Every centre-half in the game would agree with that. It is the way he leads the team and the way he reads the game.
Chris Smalling
Whenever I hear the narration for a new film, I have this process back home where my mother reads all my scripts.
Bhumi Pednekar
My family life reads a bit like ‘Little House on the Prairie.’ I was big sister to Joan, Renee, and brother William, and we grew up in Dalkey, a little town 10 miles outside of Dublin. It was a secure, safe and happy childhood, which was meant to be a disadvantage when it comes to writing stories about family dramas.
Maeve Binchy
Ever since I was younger, I would make table reads at home where I would give fake interviews.
Odeya Rush
The manual for WordStar, the most popular word-processing program, is 400 pages thick. To write a novel, you have to read a novel – one that reads like a mystery to most people. They’re not going to learn slash q-z any more than they’re going to learn Morse code. That is what Macintosh is all about.
Steve Jobs
Everyone who reads me is someone I’d like to hang out with.
Jen Lancaster
I’ve actually started to drive slower. I never want to see a news headline that reads, ‘The Chinese Guy from ‘Fast & Furious’ Pulled Over for a Speeding Ticket.’
Sung Kang
I think ‘Beasts of No Nation’ is a novel that hopefully will affect each person who reads it in a different way.
Uzodinma Iweala
My dad reads the scripts and passes them on to me.
Kodi Smit-McPhee
Honestly, if anyone reads my work, they’re doing me a favor, so they get to use whatever words they want to describe it. I can’t control that, nor if they like the work, so best not to even try.
Celeste Ng
As Lord Chesterfield said of the generals of his day, ‘I only hope that when the enemy reads the list of their names, he trembles as I do.’
Duke of Wellington
The script for ‘Infamous’ was so poised between tragedy and comedy. It’s a dream part. One reads those scripts with a sense of melancholia. When you read a script that good… I remember thinking, ‘Oh, this script is too good. They’ll never give it to me.’
Toby Jones
Editors are more concerned with the first chapters of a book; that’s what everyone reads first in the bookstore or in the online sample.
Mary Roach
The secret of using makeup for fashion is to have fun with it. When people see that you are playful, that’s attractive. Sometimes people apply makeup because they have bags under their eyes or because they don’t feel good, and that just reads ‘insecure.’
Isabella Rossellini
Literature transcends national boundaries, racial boundaries. It goes deep into the issues that concern all human beings. That is why, when people read Greek tragedy – it doesn’t matter who reads it – they are still moved by it.
Gao Xingjian
Nobody reads a mystery to get to the middle. They read it to get to the end. If it’s a letdown, they won’t buy anymore. The first page sells that book. The last page sells your next book.
Mickey Spillane
If the book is a mystery to its author as she’s writing, inevitably it’s going to be a mystery to the reader as he or she reads it.
Nicole Krauss
I just got to be more aggressive. A lot of time, I just got to make the right reads. It’s nothing major, just minor tweaks.
Bam Adebayo
I think there are a lot of actors who are excellent at cold reads, and they go to an audition, and they read the part and nail it, but then when it comes to the performance, they don’t have something.
Jeff Baena
I hate to work with another performer who reads cards. The most guilty are the people who do only a few specials a year. You’d think with so few shows they could leam the lines.
Ken Berry
Both ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette’ and my first novel, ‘This One is Mine,’ are pretty complex on a story level, and fun reads as a result.
Maria Semple
Well, we all start thinking we’re going to be Romantic rock stars, but then reality hits and you realize no one reads you but other poets.
George Murray
Some people read an interesting or provocative newspaper article, and that’s the end of that. A writer reads such an article, and her imagination gets fired up. Questions occur to her. She might feel an urge to finish the story that the article suggests.
Elizabeth Berg
Dad’s like the Six Million Dollar Man – as soon as he feels a twinge, he wants it fixed. He’s even had laser surgery on his eyes. What really annoys me is that I have to put glasses on to read something to him – but he reads it without glasses.
Paul Young
Quite often I can be in a bookshop, standing beneath a great big picture of myself and paying for a book with a credit card clearly marked John Grisham, yet no one recognises me. I often say I’m a famous author in a country where no one reads.
John Grisham
I write for an audience that likes what I like, reads what I read, thinks about the things I think about. In many ways, this puts me in opposition to the people who go to the theater generally.
Eric Bogosian
When you file an amicus brief, and you represent a state, the court reads your brief. It is a powerful position to make the legal assault from.
Ken Cuccinelli
The show is definitely not just about weight-loss physically. It’s more about finding yourself. It’s really funny because I realized at one of our table reads that ‘Huge’ was really about the weight that we carry around mentally.
Raven Goodwin
Studios might not be able to figure out my leanings, but anyone who visits my blog or reads my Twitter feed or meets me in person will realize right away that I am a huge superhero fan and a fanatic about Superman in particular.
Chris Roberson
Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Albert Einstein
There are Michael Scott moments, which are character choices, but there are also Steve’s reads. Usually the things that I’m the biggest fan of are these weird reads that he does – just the way he’s interacting with other people.
Greg Daniels
At the end of the day I’m a basketball player. I’m going to try and shoot more threes than mid-range or long twos or whatever. But if someone gives you a shot, you’re a basketball player, you got to make reads and play.
Andrew Wiggins
I think as a play-caller, you have to just go out there, rely on your guys that you have that are out there, rely on the fact that they have ability. And as a quarterback, you have to go out there and just go through your reads.
Joe Flacco
Every glass thermometer has subtle variations in the size and shape of the bulb at the bottom and the capillary tube inside, as well as variations in the width of gradations on the side. The compounded effect of these uncertainties is that each thermometer reads temperature slightly differently.
Sam Kean
If anybody reads a story in a magazine or book, different pictures compete in their minds.
Vincente Minnelli
For me, it’s just staying myself, trusting the process, trusting the game, just going through my reads at the end of the day.
Kyler Murray
Not everyone reads comics, although most people know the major superheroes, but the majority of people play video games.
Jim Lee
Just because it reads well doesn’t mean it’s always going to look good on screen. Then, a network or studio has to pick up the show, and then they have to order more episodes, and then people have to watch it. It could be the greatest thing on television that nobody ever watches.
Justin Hartley
I use a system called Vector Green Reading, which applies science to the green reads.
Bryson DeChambeau
I design for social media. My customer reads blogs, is on social media, so I design with contrast in mind. An all-black shirt looks good on the shelf but not online.
Kerby Jean-Raymond
I’m not somebody that opens a playbook and just turns and reads and reads. That doesn’t do it for me.
Tim Tebow
Man is what he reads.
Joseph Brodsky
Anyone who reads advice books about romance has one problem to begin with: bad taste in literature.
Roger Ebert
I’m not an Internet person that reads behind-the-scenes stuff. I see a trailer, and if it looks good, then I go. That’s that.
Evan Goldberg
To the man who reads ‘Scouting for Boys’ superficially, there is a disappointing lack of religion in the book. But to him who tries it in practice, the basic religion underlying it soon becomes apparent.
Robert Baden-Powell
I’m a realist about who really reads books and who acts like they read books.
Mary Pilon
What is a diary as a rule? A document useful to the person who keeps it. Dull to the contemporary who reads it and invaluable to the student, centuries afterwards, who treasures it.
Walter Scott
My reads, operation with the offense, timing with the receivers, routes, sitting in the pocket, trusting my line – everything is always a work in progress.
Deshaun Watson
The writers who have the deepest influence on one are those one reads in ones more impressionable, early life, and often it is the more youthful works of those writers that leave the deepest imprint.
J. M. Coetzee
And Michael likes to read a lot. People don’t realize that about him but he reads a number of books per week and he’s fascinated just about every subject.
David Gest
There’s always been a quality to being a science-fiction reader. Usually, you’re the only one in your class, or there are only one or two in your whole town. You’re always the guy who reads that strange stuff.
Robert J. Sawyer
Hugo Strange is interesting in the sense that he’s a master manipulator. He doesn’t really engage Batman in any sort of physical way. His weapon is his mind, and he’s very incisive and clever: he reads people and sizes them up almost instantly.
Paul Dini
I find the idea of the recap page to be something of a waste. It’s the page nobody ever reads and it’s even worse because it doesn’t tell you who anybody really is.
Chris Claremont
The wise man reads both books and life itself.
Lin Yutang
Before the throne of the Almighty, man will be judged not by his acts but by his intentions. For God alone reads our hearts.
Mahatma Gandhi
On a really big budget movie you do chemistry reads, and you sort of hedge your bets a little bit more and make sure that these people get along. But on the low budget side of things, I have to trust my gut that when I cast these people, the various elements are going to play together.
Joe Swanberg
My opponent asks her supporters to recite a three-word loyalty pledge. It reads, ‘I’m With Her.’ I choose to recite a different pledge. My pledge reads, ‘I’m with you – the American people.’
Donald Trump
I’m no longer religious, but the Bible fascinates me. Hardly anyone reads it anymore, but it’s got everything: it’s a book of poetry, it’s a book of principle, it’s a book of stories, and of myths and of epic tales, a book of histories and a book of fictions, of riddles, fables, parables and allegories.
Tara Westover
For me, I’ve always been one that reads a script and has been ready, wiling and able to go out and fight for parts.
Chris Klein
No one reads anything. They just look at images.
Jonathan Anderson
The game is never over. No matter what the scoreboard reads or what the referee says, it doesn’t end when you come off the court.
Pat Summitt
I think we usually err on the side of giving players a lot of confidence and freedom within the motion to make plays and make reads and make decisions.
Mike Budenholzer
An actor puts himself in the hands of a director. And the director’s first responsibility, obviously, is to tell the story, but the smallest thing that’s not true reads on the screen. So if a director sees that an actor is not believable, he needs to help him become believable.
Tobin Bell
I’d rather have just one person who reads and feels my work deeply than hundreds of thousands who read it but don’t really care about.
Derek Walcott
In music, you can use metaphors with ease – if a person doesn’t understand the parable, they can still enjoy the melody of the music. If, however, a person reads a book and misses the meaning of its metaphors, this will be extremely disheartening for both the reader as well as the author.
Cat Stevens
A translation needs to read convincingly. There’s no limit to what can go into it in terms of background research, feeling, or your own interests in form and history. But what should come out is something that reads as convincing English-language text.
Jonathan Galassi
In Haiti, beach bodies are simply bodies, and beach reads are simply books, because the beach is all around you.
Roxane Gay
It’s – I write the books and let the market find who reads it. I guess a young adult is anywhere from ten to fifteen.
Louis Sachar
The experience of reading a book is always unique. I believe that you render a version of the story, when you read a book, in a way that is unique and special to each person who reads it.
Carlton Cuse
No-tech tourism is a form of temporal eco-tourism in which one reads books or watches film and TV precisely because of the absence of 21st-century technologies.
Douglas Coupland
I read a blog about this young filmmaker in the Philippines who made a short film, and one of the characters in the film reads my novel and then starts discussing the novel with someone. The idea that my book can inspire another artist and be part of that other artist’s work… that’s the reason I write.
Miguel Syjuco
Looking back over the years, I realize the Bible isn’t magic, but it is corrective; it isn’t an answer book, it is a living book; it isn’t a fix-it book, it is relationship book. When I confront God’s word, I am confronted; when I read God’s word, it reads me; when I seek God’s presence, He seeks me.
Mike Yaconelli
Network cable reads are always kind of stressful because it’s the first time everyone’s read through it out loud.
Amy Landecker
The great thing about small children is they’re portable, so we take them everywhere, but when it comes to 2015, Zachary’s going to school, and I want to be there to drop him off and pick him up. I don’t want to just be the father who reads them a bedtime story.
Elton John
Everyone reads the same words in a book but has a very clear picture of their own.
Tuppence Middleton
Everybody has to be accountable on every play. The main thing is that we have to do our job. Going through all of the keys, making sure we are making the right reads, blocking the right person and getting the right route depth. Everything.
Julio Jones
Anticipating that most poetry will be worse than carrying heavy luggage through O’Hare Airport, the public, to its loss, reads very little of it.
Russell Baker
More and more, I find that the news reads like a particularly random game of Consequences.
Craig Brown
I’m not a big fan of table reads or sitting around a table and reading a script. I’d rather do it on set and do it for real.
Donnie Wahlberg
If with open mind one reads and observes industriously and long; if in so doing one covers a wide field and so covering reflects in terms of realism, he is likely, soon or late, to be brought to a sudden consciousness that Man is an unknown quantity and his existence unsuspected.
Louis Sullivan
There are scenes from books I’m happy with. I tend to think my books are all broken. But then my favourite reads are almost always books that don’t, in the end, pull off what they set out to do.
Michael Winter
I do a lot of revising on paper. Sometimes I think I should just write longhand – what I type reads very different once I print it out.
Sara Shepard
I think my prose reads as if English were my second language. By the time I get to the end of a paragraph, I’m dodging bullets and gasping for breath.
Lynn Abbey
My dad dropped out of school in middle school, but he reads five or six books a week, and my mom reads about two.
Beth Macy
But I honestly don’t read critics. My dad reads absolutely everything ever written about me. He calls me up to read ecstatic reviews, but I always insist that I can’t hear them. If you give value to the good reviews, you have to give value to the criticism.
Fiona Apple
My mom says: ‘Why aren’t you a doctor?’ and I’m like, ‘I am a doctor!’ and she’s all, ‘No, I mean a real doctor.’ She reads my books, but she says they give her a headache.
Brian Greene
I spend my life studying that book, and every book I’ve written has in some sense been a book about the Bible, and that’s what I mean by reclaiming its value and its essence for a world that no longer treats it literally and no longer reads it traditionally.
John Shelby Spong
A book reads the better which is our own, and has been so long known to us, that we know the topography of its blots, and dog’s ears, and can trace the dirt in it to having read it at tea with buttered muffins.
Charles Lamb
How do you tell a communist? Well, it’s someone who reads Marx and Lenin. And how do you tell an anti-Communist? It’s someone who understands Marx and Lenin.
Ronald Reagan
Most of what Einstein said and did has no direct impact on what anybody reads in the Bible. Special relativity, his work in quantum mechanics, nobody even knows or cares. Where Einstein really affects the Bible is the fact that general relativity is the organizing principle for the Big Bang.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
The writer studies literature, not the world. He is careful of what he reads, for that is what he will write.
Annie Dillard
Rapunzel is a bit more relatable than the other princesses, especially because she doesn’t even know that she’s a princess until the very end of the movie. I like to think of her as the bohemian Disney princess. She’s barefoot and living in a tower. She paints and reads… She’s a Renaissance woman.
Mandy Moore
Put on the game tape. The game tape speaks volumes because I’m in live action, I’m out there making reads, going through progressions, redirection protection, signaling hot routes, getting the offense in and out of the right play.
Teddy Bridgewater
All I’ve ever really done is page 3 in The Sun, and not every man reads that.
Katie Price
Reading, after a certain age, diverts the mind too much from its creative pursuits. Any man who reads too much and uses his own brain too little falls into lazy habits of thinking.
Albert Einstein
Young readers have to be entertained. No child reads fiction because they think it’s going to make them a better person.
Mark Haddon
But I think Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang really got that thing where, if a movie reads really funny and then has some dramatic or violent or sinister stuff in it, you can’t forget that primarily it has to be even funnier than you read it or that other stuff doesn’t work.
Robert Downey, Jr.
Being in a recording studio is a very different feel from performing onstage. I mean, obviously, you can’t just go in and do what you would do onstage. It reads differently.
Megan Hilty
When you’re true to yourself – not the audience that reads about me in the newspaper or sees a clip someplace, but the audience that actually comes and watches, just like Oprah – they get to know you and they sense something genuine.
Glenn Beck
If anyone reads about my story, and says, ‘Look, there’s a guy that struggled with a lot of stuff that I am dealing with now, and he got through it,’ then, yeah, I’d love that. If it helps one person, then that’s great.
Mardy Fish
As a kid, I’d watch MTV and think how great it would be to have my own music videos on those shows. Now I turn on MTV and, along the bottom of the screen, it often reads, ‘Coming next… Pixie Lott.’ That’s so strange that I can’t even begin to make sense of it.
Pixie Lott
An exile reads change the way he reads time, memory, self, love, fear, beauty: in the key of loss.
Andre Aciman
Many of my projects are inspired by Indian mythology. We have read that in the ancient times, people could expand their body parts, extend arms – all of that reads like a dream. But all this can be done using technology based on simple solutions.
Pranav Mistry
Any intelligent woman who reads the marriage contract, and then goes into it, deserves all the consequences.
Isadora Duncan
In Brazil, the history of the interaction between blancos and indios – whites and Indians – often reads like an extended epitaph. Tribes were wiped out by disease and massacres; languages and songs were obliterated.
David Grann
Some readers took ‘Heaven’s My Destination’ as a satire on Christianity and the Midwest, but today it reads like a loving comedy.
Robert Gottlieb
There are two types of session guitar players. One reads and only plays what the ‘dots’ say. The other adds that something special and plays notes and solos you dream of. Big Jim Sullivan was such a player.
Gilbert O’Sullivan
The vast majority of free verse is ghastly. Utterly ghastly. No one reads it. No one listens to it.
Felix Dennis
Anyone who reads my work will see that there are often difficult relationships between fathers and sons.
Salman Rushdie
Nobody reads a reference book to be amused, much less charmed.
Terry Teachout
It’s tough to be in a relationship with a musician, because it reads sometimes as this ego and self-involvement when it’s really just concentration and focus.
David Sanborn
DNA is a code of four letters; proteins are made up of amino acids which come in 20 forms. So the ribosome is a very clever machine that reads one language and operates in another.
Ada Yonath
In America, everyone writes but no one reads. Everyone’s writing all day long – sending emails, tweets, text messages; they all think they’re James Cameron’s Avatar, performing in some video game for which they make up the script.
Gary Shteyngart
Prophets of doom have always taken risks in terms of ridicule and humiliation. If you stand on a street corner holding up a sign that reads ‘The End Is Near,’ passersby will laugh and heckle. People will say you’re like Chicken Little, running around telling people the sky is falling.
Robert Kiyosaki
Computers may save time but they sure waste a lot of paper. About 98 percent of everything printed out by a computer is garbage that no one ever reads.
Andy Rooney
A real book is not one that we read, but one that reads us.
W. H. Auden
I’m one of those freaky people that actually reads books.
Jason Momoa
For one who reads, there is no limit to the number of lives that may be lived, for fiction, biography, and history offer an inexhaustible number of lives in many parts of the world, in all periods of time.
Louis L’Amour
I thought I’d begin by reading a poem by Shakespeare, but then I thought, why should I? He never reads any of mine.
Spike Milligan
If you replace the word God in the Bible with the word Truth, it reads exactly right.
Ricky Williams
Many people, I’ve noticed by informally polling friends, are prone to distinguishing a beach read by genre. Some people thought all thrillers are beach reads; others thought all romances are. Some people thought only mass market paperbacks are eligible for beach read standards.
Michelle Dean
I’m from Mexico, and I’ve heard some horror stories about cast members who can’t stand each other. What we have on ‘Jane’ is a blessing. We do table reads for every single episode one day before it starts to shoot.
Jaime Camil
And some poets are far better read off the page because they’re very bad speakers. I’m thinking of one in particular whom I won’t name, a good poet, and he reads in such a dry, boring way, your eyes start drooping.
Norman MacCaig
I feel like I’m a guy who consistently makes the right play and the right reads offensively and that helps my teammates.
J. J. Redick
How often one reads a contemporary full-length novel and thinks quietly, mutinously, that it would have worked out better at half or a third the length.
Ian Mcewan
Critics don’t sell records, unfortunately. No one reads what they write anyway.
Ry Cooder
I have no trouble saying, as the copy reads, about how caring nurses are, because it’s true.
Christina Pickles
I wish I could fill every young man who reads these pages with an utter dread and horror of poverty. I wish I could make you so feel its shame, its constraint, its bitterness that you would make vows against it.
Orison Swett Marden
‘In Cold Blood’ is not a thriller at all, really. It is, however, the first work of its kind: a true crime book that reads like fiction.
Lisa Unger
Steampunk is not a group of children in a classroom, sitting quietly while the teacher reads a story; it’s the kids at recess, playing a wild, endless game of pretend.
