Ann Widdecombe

I can still remember. I was ill, and I was seven, and my father didn’t want me to just read children’s books. He came with Conan Doyle. I tried, and I liked it. I think the first I read was ‘The Sign of the Four’; ‘Study in Scarlet’ was the next one. Then I guess I stayed home a few extra days from school to read.
Henning Mankell
I clearly remember the pain of partition; the whole of Delhi was seeing the struggle of refugees. We stayed near Roshanara Bagh, and the whole city appeared like a refugee camp.

I showed up in L.A. with $500 and a backpack and I stayed at a shelter, so nobody handed me anything. I worked for every single thing that I have.

J. Michael Straczynski
I don’t think I would be a writer if I had stayed in Chile. I would be trapped in the chores, in the family, in the person that people expected me to be.
Isabel Allende
I tell my grandchildren – I’ve got seven of them – to go to college and get that degree first. I could have stayed in college and still recorded. Isn’t that something? The kids of today are doing it.

Lee Haney

Randy Bachman
I began tailoring my books to cater to one or another universe of readers. I found it incredibly boring; and frankly, it felt stultifying. I’d previously been in advertising. I felt if I was going to create something to fit a specific market, I might as well have stayed with advertising.
M. J. Rose
I am fortunate to stay at lots of lovely hotels when I’m on tour, but my favourite hotel group in Britain is Malmaison. I recently stayed at the Malmaison in Manchester, which was pretty amazing. It had a fabulous bar and restaurants, as well as fantastic rooms with mood lighting.

Bernadette Peters

Rickie Lambert
It’s a huge honor to be put in the Hall of Fame… it’s even better because I played there for six years, and I left on bad terms. To be able to come back and be recognized – in hindsight, I wish I would have stayed, because everyone understands my career was large in Orlando.
Penny Hardaway
Normal kids in their teens want to go and date girls and do mischievous things, your hormones are jumping around, but I stayed in my bedroom in search of something.

Lindsay Lohan
When I left my family home and had finished university, I stayed in South London but moved closer to London’s center, to Brixton and Herne Hill. Herne Hill is a tiny place that is ridiculously overstocked with lovely pubs.
Nish Kumar
I used to switch up my cologne every two to three months, get a new wave – Dolce, Versace, Burberry. But Black Orchid, that joint stayed. That’s the smell of beauty that stays on you… and girls love Tom Ford.
When I was 19 years old, I quit football completely. For about a month, I stayed at home in a depression. This was in the summer of 2008.
Moving to New York City by myself at 17 was certainly my bravest moment. I bought a one-way ticket and stayed with a friend of a friend and figured it out along the way.
Rachel Boston
We’ve stayed with the business and even though we have the arguments and disagreements that eight guys in a building trying to do a job would have, we try to keep that off the cameras because it’s too much drama. Really what it is is we have eight guys who are having fun doing what they do.
Richard Rawlings
Christianity has stayed stable, as it must do. The doctrines don’t change. The understanding of what it means to walk with God doesn’t change. The reality of worship doesn’t change, not at heart, anyway. So Christianity appears to be stuck.
J. I. Packer
Actually, my mother and Alfie came for three weeks’ Christmas vacation and stayed for 21 years. I guess my mother never went back because she was lonely.

Donna Strickland
I remember when I was 11 playing against guys who were as old as 22. I just stayed outside and shot from there.

Chris Messina
I remember at the age of five travelling on a trolley car with my mother past a group of women on a picket line at a textile plant, seeing them being viciously beaten by security people. So that kind of thing stayed with me.

Chris Tarrant
I got into this business for one reason, and I stayed in this business for one reason: To be the World Heavyweight Champion. I think if you are in professional wrestling, and you don’t have that dream or aspire to be the best and carry that World Heavyweight Championship, then you are in the wrong business.
Bobby Roode
I remember watching ‘The Carol Burnett Show’ with my parents as a kid. All those weird outfits she wore, like turtlenecks and long skirts, really stayed in my head.
Chris Benz
A lot of the stories I was brought up on had to do with extreme actions – leaving everything behind, crossing the trackless wastes, and in those stories the people who stayed behind and had their settled ways – those people were not the people who got the prize. The prize was California.
Joan Didion
During Lok Sabha elections, Amit Shah and Fadnavis came to me. During talks, I was given offer of deputy CM post. I said I am not so helpless. I have given a promise to Balasaheb that a Maharashtra CM will be from Shiv Sena. So I did not agree and stayed firm.
Uddhav Thackeray
I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind.

The devil that stayed with me most vividly was the one from the cover of Iron Maiden’s ‘Number of the Beast’ album.
Victor LaValle
I think if Joe Montana or Peyton Manning had their way, they would’ve stayed where they had won Super Bowls and played so well. They wouldn’t have had to leave.
Kirk Cousins
Woody Allen stayed so good because he never left New York. Howard Stern stayed so good because he never left New York – Mel Brooks when he just got out of New York was doing ‘Blazing Saddles;’ when he left New York he started doing stuff like ‘Robin Hood Men In Tights’ – he was in L.A. too long. He lost the edge.
Artie Lange
Texas was home. We went to Anchorage to get rich in 1959. Someone told us, ‘If you drive a nail, you could make $100 a day in construction work.’ We were hungry, and we stayed there for a year and a half. But I never did plan to stay there – the same with Nashville. I was gonna go up there and work, but Texas was home.
Johnny Gimble
For about 30 years, I stayed in the same department and worked the same job, which was rare among people of my age. I chose this path because it allowed me to work on my fiction.
Liu Cixin
When you go somewhere like Kenya and you see how the children don’t have pencils and pens, and all of these things are considered luxuries, and what a privilege they see education as and how hungry they are to learn, I wanted to give my brother and sister long lectures. That definitely stayed with me.
Naomie Harris
I value my education, but I cannot put a value on it. I know it has been worth some money to me – I don’t think ‘The Post’ would have hired me if I had lacked a degree – but I probably could have earned about the same if I had stayed in the insurance business, where I worked while going to college at night.
Richard Cohen
When my marriage broke up… I had just put on 45 pounds for my ‘Shall We Dance?’ character. I had to eat 10,000 calories a day just to put on weight while training with Tony Dovolani. I basically stayed in bed for a six-month rotation of depression naps. Dance helped me lose the weight.
Lisa Ann Walter
I went to – I got a wonderful college education. I went to Harvard. In those four years, I accumulated a lot of knowledge, but I also created a kind of habit of learning that has stayed with me my whole life.
John Lithgow
I have no idea what would have happened to me had I stayed at Motherwell.
Paul Lambert
Relationships are eternal. The ‘separation’ is another chapter in the relationship. Often, letting go of the old form of the relationship becomes a lesson in pure love much deeper than any would have learned had the couple stayed together.
Marianne Williamson
I stayed in Baghdad every summer until I was 14. My dad’s sister is still there, but many of my relatives have managed to get out. People forget that there are still people there who are not radicalized in any particular direction, trying to live normal lives in a very difficult situation.
Andy Serkis
I was born in Kerala, where my maternal grandparents lived, and stayed there till the age of one, after which I came to Maharashtra to live with my parents and moved all around the state with my father, who worked as a superintendent in an ordnance factory.
Kay Kay Menon
I think I’ve been quite lucky in that I haven’t had to make too many changes to myself. Obviously, there have been adaptations and things that I’ve altered, but I haven’t changed completely. I’ve stayed myself.
Jess Glynne
I stayed at home and loved my own company because I was just petrified of everybody else my own age, which I think a lot of people are.

Ravi Babu
So I’ve had lots of different bands over the years who have stayed with me for certain tours.
Joan Armatrading
When I had my first gig, I was 18 in January in 2007. My first gig that I got paid, I was playing for 10 people in a 250 people capacity venue. The promoter wanted to book me because he liked my music. I played a couple of songs that made people dance. To me, that rush has always stayed the same.
I’ve been in a treatment center for drinkin’. I stayed for two days, then escaped.
Evel Knievel
Boarding school was a really pivotal moment. Before I went there, I was so happy. I’m not sure I was ready for it. I was only 13. My parents didn’t send me away; it was my choice as well. But I definitely shouldn’t have stayed for five years.
Adwoa Aboah
I’m from a very close-knit family, and there was something very… I guess you could say normal, about it, and I so appreciate that. We all ate dinner together every single night, and my mom stayed at home with us. I owe a lot to my parents.
Rachel McAdams
I was born in Delhi, have stayed and roamed the world, but had a tough childhood and career path. Only my mom and mausie supported me in music. So, I would just sing shabad kirtan to remain somehow attached to music.
Yo Yo Honey Singh
I wanted to invent an engine that could run for ever. I could have developed a new train, had I stayed in the railway. It would have looked like the AK-47 though.
Mikhail Kalashnikov
So something about that touched me, obviously, when I was young and it just stayed with me. I’m always amazed by that, because my experience seems to be so much different than what I’m told, so much of the time.
Andrew McCarthy
For me, coming up, the first I had ever heard of basketball? It was from my mom. She was a really good player back in her day, and even played college ball at Kentucky State. And then she went on to become a coach and an AD after that – so she always stayed real close to the game, and kept it a part of her life.
Bradley Beal
I started boxing aged 15 when a local man, Ricardo Linari, opened a boxing club in Margarita. I just seemed to be able to knock people out, and that power has stayed with me.
Marcos Maidana
A childhood favourite that has stayed with me over the years is Kate Winslet. She’s an amazing British actress who always delivers no matter what role she’s in. Another actress I’ve found incredibly inspiring is Olivia Colman.
Georgina Campbell
Had I stayed in England, I would have had to take at least a few acting jobs just for the money.
Tom Payne
After the navy, I transferred to Harvard and finished there. I was there the spring term of 1951 and I stayed through the summer term and a whole other year, so I was able to do two years in a little less than a year and a half.
Harry Mathews
I stayed a virgin until I was 23. I didn’t do drugs or drink or smoke.
Victoria Jackson
If I stayed a football player, my career would have been over 20 years ago. As it is, my knees are shot. I found I got the same good feeling in acting that I had in sports, but I found I could have a more profound impact on people.
William Petersen
As I followed my dream – stayed in-Spirit, that is, inspired – I made more money in the first year after I gave up my employment than I had made in the previous 35 years of my life.
Wayne Dyer
Most of the time I spent in America, I was having a love affair with some American or other. I was just passing through but stayed because of these chaps.
Julie Christie
I knew as long as I stayed focused on my priorities, I would be ready for life’s ups and downs.
Philip Rivers
I’d been to Memphis before, but we stayed out of Memphis early on in the late 70s for obvious reasons. People were very sensitive about Elvis Presley, and my stage name obviously would be provocative to some people in that area at that time.
Elvis Costello
I’ve stayed good friends with most of my girlfriends.
Richard Gere
I’ve always stayed hungry.
John Isner
Many of my favourite hotels are in London. I like the Covent Garden Hotel and I stayed at Blakes last time I was in London. I like the feeling of warmth and homeliness that you get from both of those places.
Diego Luna
My friends went on gap years and I just stayed in London.
Georgia Toffolo
Luckily, he was in the process of moving to France at the time, anyway. But if he had stayed in the States, I don’t know how he would have handled that, because it was getting pretty crazy. I mean, a celebrity which he really did not welcome. And I can’t blame him.
Terry Zwigoff
And when I’m on set, I’m just thinking about the script and of working. I think I’ve stayed focused on the work so much that I haven’t really noticed my life start to change except for I’ve gotten busier.
Jennifer Lawrence
When I left Liverpool, I could have stayed in England but that would have meant joining clubs that didn’t play football – just a long-ball game.
Ryan Babel
I left Mexico for artistic survival. If I had stayed, I would have been forced by the government, who control the movie business, to direct TV shows or commercials or infomercials for the government.
Alfonso Cuaron
The truth of the matter is I stayed in L.A. raising my children, and when they went to college, I packed my bags along with them and came to New York and looked for parts in the theatre, because that’s always what I preferred doing.
Andrea Martin
I have always stayed out of politics, I don’t believe it would be appropriate to talk about it.
Kirsty Coventry
We go to college, live together or marry, and have kids – often with little more thought to the daily routines of raising children than our grandparents gave them, when women by and large stayed at home.
Mona Simpson
Probably I would have got more money if I’d stayed in Italy. It was said that I took England for the money. Absolutely not. I took it because it’s the biggest football job in the world, the finest job you can have. I enjoyed it every day.
Sven-Goran Eriksson
They stayed by my side the whole time – my teammates, family and all the fans.
William Green
My mother has a very big family in Shanghai, so I have, like, almost 40 cousins, so we stayed together all the time. So by the time I get to Hong Kong, I become the only child and the only one surrounded by adults, you know.
Wong Kar-wai
My fear is that, had I stayed in Jersey, I would have become Snooki because I’m just a bottle of hair dye away.
Melissa Rauch
‘Lucky Man’ I wrote when I was twelve years old. I wrote it when I first was given a guitar by my mother. I only knew four chords, but I used them all to write that song. And it just stayed with me, stayed in my head. I didn’t even write it on a piece of paper. I remembered it.
Greg Lake
My favorite novel ever is Abraham Verghese’s ‘Cutting for Stone.’ It takes you so many places. I stayed up to 4 in the morning to finish it.
Beth Macy
I landed in Los Angeles where I’ve stayed, with one year-long exception when I returned to Ashland as an actor in the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
Kim Rhodes
I’m really looking forward to playing in Copenhagen again. Last time I stayed as long as I could, took pictures, signed autographs, and hung out until they through me out of the place!
George Duke
I definitely stayed away from Twitter. I didn’t want to be geotagged or anything.
Andy Hurley
And my life for the first – you know, when I was in my 20s and 30s, I had my career, and I traveled the world, I lived out of a suitcase. I stayed up until dawn. I did all of those things that were very exciting.
Cheryl Tiegs
There was a strange atmosphere on the set because we were filming in this large house, which was used for troubled children. You’d go in and find walls had been burnt down. The building was charged with this history and it stayed with us throughout the filming.
Beatrice Dalle
I turned popular music on the radio, and I never listened to it again after that, in about 1985. That’s when I switched over to classical music, and I pretty much stayed with that since then.
Alec Baldwin
I would have to honestly say that my biggest regret is even starting this sport. I think I would’ve lived a different life if I would’ve stayed home in Memphis and worked at the family business. I’d be closer to my family and growing old with them instead of living out at California.
Quinton Jackson
Religion has stayed with me even though I rebelled.
Grace Jones
My father had left behind an old piano. My sister was already going to school, my mother was out working, and I stayed at home alone with my adorable grandmother who understood nothing I said. It was so boring that I stayed at the piano all day long, and that saved my life.
Michel Legrand
I think the Mary J. Blige persona wouldn’t lend itself to the big kid persona, but that’s exactly who she is. She has such a serious life and childhood and then such a dramatic one, a successful R&B singer. But she’s just stayed this kid for life and stuff.
Cameron Britton
I always believed in myself, and I knew if I worked hard, stayed positive and did what I was supposed to, that good things would happen.
Demetrius Andrade
When I wrote the song, I had the sea near Bombay in mind. We stayed at a hotel by the sea, and the fishermen come up at five in the morning and they were all chanting. And we went on the beach and we got chased by a mad dog – big as a donkey.
Ray Davies
I stayed well clear of roles like ‘Top Boy’ for years before I did it, but I had to do it because the script was amazing. It was the most authentic thing that I’ve ever read when it comes to that sort of life.
Ashley Walters
Like everybody, I’ve stayed up at night regretting things – Why did I do that, say that – but at the end of the day, I really do believe everything happens for a reason.
Paula Patton
The only concept or experience or core belief that I can attribute my other-ness to is that I just started out a weirdo and I stayed a weirdo. And it took me a long time to embrace my outsidership and see it as a strength rather than a weakness.
Aisha Tyler
The very best hotel I’ve stayed in is the Intercontinental on Park Lane. We went there for the Chelsea Flower Show a few years ago, and it was sheer luxury. Everybody had a smile on their face. I came home and changed all my pillows because the hotel ones were so beautiful.
Mary Berry
I didn’t care for school much – it was very strict, corporal punishment in the form of the ‘tawse’ was common and unpredictable, and I was often afraid – but I believe that I did well enough; indeed, my mother always regretted that I had not stayed long enough to become the ‘dux,’ as the best pupil was called.
Angus Deaton
As a child, I was a brat, and my parents didn’t know how to control me. So they told me ghost stories, which stayed with me. I am still petrified of darkness and being alone.
Bipasha Basu
I’m in Atlanta all the time shooting and recording. That’s why I stayed.
Trevor Jackson
I met India Arie, who is one of my favorite artists of all time. It was really sweet; I was broken up with a month before, and she stayed up texting me all night and was helping me through it. Her text message looks like a song of hers. She’s sort of become my fairy godmother.
Ariana Grande
If your boss asks you why you’re comin’ in late, you say it’s ’cause you stayed late.
J. B. Smoove
When I made ‘Who Needs Pictures,’ my first album, I had been west of the Mississippi River one time in my life, and that was in fourth grade. We traveled to California for vacation and stayed with some friends of my parents. It was culture shock, and it was different.
Brad Paisley
When I was young, my family didn’t go on outings to the circus or trips to Disneyland. We couldn’t afford them. Instead, we stayed in our small rural West Texas town, and my parents took us to cemeteries.
Jenny Lawson
I know in my own marriage I stayed in it to provide my son with what I thought was a stable background and to give him what I thought was the family life a child should have with two parents. But that isn’t always the best way, and it took me taking my son to therapy after the divorce to really see it.
Regina King
The Loden in Vancouver, where I stayed when I was filming ‘The Arrow,’ is a family-run hotel with a fantastic restaurant, great facilities, and brilliant people.
Colin Salmon
Utah State stayed with me, so I stayed loyal to the people loyal to me.
Bobby Wagner
I will only talk about my work. I have always stayed away from commenting on my personal life, and that remains unchanged.
Karishma Tanna
I would be copping out if I stayed in the myth of the ’60s.
Jerry Rubin
We all have heard it claimed that 13 is an ‘unlucky number.’ Indeed, there are many hotels in America that for this very reason claim not to have a 13th floor, in the sense that there is no button bearing the label ’13’ in their elevators (I recently stayed in one in New York, in fact).
Douglas Hofstadter
If you’re lucky like me, your relationship with your brother has resolved itself on the peaceful side of the fence and has stayed there. But if you’re someone who’s got a family that’s all fractured and finding it hard to relate, that’s a very sad place to be.
Tom Hardy
I had seen the ballet of ‘Swan Lake’ as a child but it was as an adult, when I saw a production featuring Erik Bruhn, that I first noticed how significant a part the ever-present threat of violence played. This juxtaposition of great beauty and grace with a backdrop of pure evil stayed with me for years.
Walter Dean Myers
I could have tripled my money if I’d stayed. But I was just tired of the touring. It’s a crazy life that you live at twice the normal speed.
Randy Meisner
What was so good about it was that the set that they originally built stayed there, and weathered over the five years. It got five summers and five winters of weather. It became more and more authentic as we worked in it, and they added bits to it.
Derek Jacobi
I really believe God called on me to coach, and that is the reason I stayed in it for so long.
Bobby Bowden
Unlike settled, patriarchal societies such as classical Greece and Rome, where women stayed home to weave and mind children, the lives of nomadic steppe tribes centered on horses and archery.
Adrienne Mayor
The running across the field thing, that was the first scene we shot in the movie. We asked the audience to stay for the scene, and 37,000 people stayed.
Jimmy Fallon
I knew that women politicians face a lot of problems in their lives, so, I dedicated my life for the weaker communities, stayed unmarried.
It’s kind of like OK, I want to be a singer. And I felt if I would have stayed with the ‘Osbournes’ and done the whole Osbourne thing… I would have been typecasted right away before I had a chance to experience other things.
Aimee Osbourne
I never compromised my integrity by playing a character. I didn’t tweet anybody something crazy. I was just myself, kept winning and stayed ready. I didn’t sell my soul.
Joseph Benavidez
I left Green Bay for Seattle in 1999. I wonder what would have happened had I stayed in Green Bay, where I’ve got one of the best quarterbacks of all time in his prime.
Mike Holmgren
I feel that, in India, we have films that have tackled various issues over the years, but perhaps one of the issues that we’ve tackled less is the issue of caste-ism. That’s an issue we’ve more or less stayed away from… although we touched on it briefly in some films like ‘Lagaan.’
Aamir Khan
For 20 years, my mother, my sister and I had seldom spoken of my father. If he happened to come up in conversation, pain and embarrassment entered the room and stayed until he disappeared back into the silence with which we all felt more at ease.
George Packer
I’ve always had a connection here in the city from the first day I arrived. I stayed in the city. I made San Francisco my home. I was seen in the offseason at a lot of different functions, and people liked that.
Willie McCovey
When I retired in 2006, I stayed for a further two years in England. I stayed because I wanted to be in England without being a footballer, without the rhythm. I wanted to enjoy the city.
Dennis Bergkamp
I first watched ‘Adhe Adhure’ in college. I loved it, and it stayed with me ever since. I decided that I would some day direct this play – not in English, but in Hindi.
Lillete Dubey
But what has been pretty good about the coronaviruses in general is they keep their structural pieces very similar. What do I mean by that? There’s certain – the outer coat, the envelope, and the inside part of the virus has stayed very constant.
Deborah Birx
I try not to think about where I would be now if I had stayed in Wolverhampton. Jail. That’s the way I would have seen it. It was just part and parcel of where I grew up and the lifestyle I was in.
Andre Gray
I always stayed fit because I’m a performer, and all of those things help me to perform.
Like many Catholics, I was very affected by the personality of Jesus and that impression, pious as it was, has stayed with me.
Simon Callow
I could have moved anywhere I wanted to. But for family reasons, I stayed in the Midwest.
Rick Nielsen
I wouldn’t go to pro wrestling. It’s not really my thing. I’m a fan, but I think every sport could take some notes from the WWE – how they’ve progressed and stayed relevant for such a long period of time.
Jordan Burroughs
My father took me to a lot of sports events as a child, and our TV stayed on ESPN.
Freddie Gibbs
Sometime in my 20s, a wise mentor said something that dramatically changed my outlook and that has stayed with me ever since. She told me to ‘wear the mantle with dignity and pride.’
Emma Walton Hamilton
I enjoy staying home with friends more than going out. The other night, for example, my girlfriends and I stayed in listening to some ’90s rap – my favorite kind. We were in the Hamptons and made it an all-Biggie weekend, all of his albums on repeat. I loved it.
Phoebe Tonkin
There is a very strong theatre-going tradition in Moscow. It has stayed strong.
Dasha Zhukova
I played with dolls until I was 15. My mother encouraged it because my older sister got married when she was 15, so Mom thought that the longer I stayed with dolls, the better.
Linda Evans
I survived because I never took on big responsibilities in my private life. In the early days, I lived on two or three pounds a week and learned to cook – and I’m a good cook – because I had to. Even when I went on holiday, I stayed in other people’s houses.
Cameron Mackintosh
The whole 1950s notion was find the right girl, get married, move to the suburbs and then hang out with the guys while she stayed home with the babies. I felt that was sort of sad.
Hugh Hefner
So they all went away from the little log house. The shutters were over the windows, so the little house could not see them go. It stayed there inside the log fence, behind the two big oak trees that in the summertime had made green roofs for Mary and Laura to play under.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
I was 8 years old when I went across the street from my house to a fair, and they always had a used book sale. For a quarter I bought a book called ‘Come On Seabiscuit.’ I loved that book. It stayed with me all those years.
Laura Hillenbrand
It wasn’t easy to get the family to this point. I had to work two jobs. I had all nine kids. I stayed there with them and got them all into show biz. I don’t care what anyone else said, I did my job.
Joe Jackson
The first Mardi Gras I went to, I stayed at the Tulane AE Pi house on Broadway. Slept on a pool table one night, slept under it the next.
Adam Richman
I am smarter because I stayed in school, and I am a better football player.
Dak Prescott
I stayed in the Navy until July of 1946.
Daniel J. Evans
When I used to have a show on French TV, people would ask me how my jacket stayed spotless while cooking. Your whole area has to be clean – and you have to keep it that way.
Joel Robuchon
A lot of people have told me along the way that my style and the music I do… is unmarketable. But the only reason I’m successful is because I have stayed true to myself.
Lindsey Stirling
I’ve stayed away from Twitter for a long time because I sort of didn’t trust myself with such an intimate but very public way of relating to the world, but I feel like I’ve studied it enough.
Elizabeth Reaser
When I was younger, I was mousey brown and started putting in highlights with each child. By the time I had my third baby, I was pretty much a blonde, and I stayed that way until I was in my late 50s.
Maye Musk
When I went to San Francisco in that cold late spring of 1967, I did not even know what I wanted to find out, and so I just stayed around a while and made a few friends.
Joan Didion
I came to New York to study theater and stayed and was doing exactly what I wanted to do. It’s because of that work that some doors eventually opened for me.
Michael Stuhlbarg
I don’t think I would have stayed for the second season if I hadn’t been happy.
Sarah Sutton
I would not have stayed at a university if it told me upfront that a condition for me getting tenure. my views have to be filtered through Catholic values. I would consider it a betrayal of my parents’ legacy.
Norman Finkelstein
I never got away from the war. Not because I was obsessed with it in those years, but because it was the event of my generation and I started out covering it so I stayed with it.
Neil Sheehan
The personal Michael is indescribable. He’s magnanimous. He truly is in every way. Had it not been for all the media stuff, I would have stayed married to him forever unless he finally got tired of me.
Debbie Rowe
I have always stayed true to my craft.
Varun Sharma
It was lack of good scripts and lack of time for daily serials, for which I consciously stayed away from TV.
Ashok Saraf
Hating Wall Street is an American tradition that dates back even to the days when Thomas Jefferson cursed that money lover Alexander Hamilton. And for centuries, the complaints about it have largely stayed the same: ‘It does nothing! It creates chaos! It’s a parasite that sucks hardworking Americans dry!’
Adam Davidson
Growing up, I wanted to write films and make films. Even as I took this detour and stayed in the music world, I still think in terms of ‘What is in this room? What is the shot? Who are the characters? What is the conversation here?’ My sense of pacing is very filmlike, it’s not musical.
Oneohtrix Point Never
After three years with Roma, I spent two seasons at Fiorentina. I could have stayed there for longer, but they only had ambitions to be in the middle of the table – not to win anything. Their ambition was to not go down.
Sven-Goran Eriksson
The fact that our band has weathered so much and stayed together for so long and we still get on stage and have a good time together, that’s a big deal for us. We don’t take that for granted.
Tony Kanal
I have always stayed away from works that objectify women or is misogynistic or politically incorrect.
Sayani Gupta
I wasn’t the only person out there writing about pop culture and race, but I stayed true to my voice, and people felt attracted to that. They said it felt like they were having brunch with their best friend.
Luvvie Ajayi
It’s true that I had two different offers from Chinese football, but I stayed in England in order to give myself the opportunity. To go there would have been the easiest way, because it was a great offer, but I wanted to stay.
Radamel Falcao
The longer you stay out of this sport, the less sharp you are, and I’ve been aware of that; that’s why I’ve stayed and haven’t wanted to retire and come back – because you skip a beat.
Urijah Faber
I knew if I stayed in London my whole life would be dancing. I’d won almost every major title you can. I thought ‘This really isn’t my passion. I really want to sing,’ and I knew I wouldn’t be able to if I stayed there.
Julianne Hough
I am not Padma Shri Manoj Bajpayee. I am Manoj Bajpayee, an outsider who saw dreams and stayed on the fringes of Mumbai and worked day and night to get work.
Manoj Bajpayee
I was raised – professionally – in the Public Integrity Section. I started in 1976, stayed there for 12 years. It was formed after Watergate by then-head of the Criminal Division Dick Thornburgh, who ultimately became Attorney General.
Eric Holder
I mostly eat healthy. I just do. I’m not a vegan for health reasons – although obviously I’m 20 pounds lighter than when I started. I stayed 20 pounds lighter. I feel better. My friends say I look better. All that’s true. But I’m a vegan for compassionate reasons.
Russell Simmons
I grew up without any security – I obviously had lots of security because I have two parents who had a good marriage and stayed together, and we had a creative household full of ideas, but there was never any financial security. So I knew I could have a good life without that.
Rosamund Pike
I worked in a chicken factory, in a steel foundry, I worked on the bins for a year or so. It started as a summer job, but I stayed on because I liked it very much. I liked it that it made you very fit, doing all the lifting and that, so I could wear short-sleeved t-shirts, which I’d never been able to do before!
Bob Mortimer
I was born in Bangkok in 1968 and grew up in Southeast Asia with my Thai mom and my American father, who first came to the region to fight in Vietnam and stayed to work assisting refugees.
Tammy Duckworth
Moving gave me confidence. I was really reclusive when I first moved. I stayed home a lot or went to shows alone. But by the second semester of my freshman year, I started making friends.
Soccer Mommy
‘All Our Yesterdays’ was unquestionably the best work I have ever done. And the reading public stayed away in droves.
Robert B. Parker
You may be sorry that you spoke, sorry you stayed or went, sorry you won or lost, sorry so much was spent. But as you go through life, you’ll find – you’re never sorry you were kind.
Herbert V. Prochnow
After Hurricane Sandy, my family and I stayed in our apartment in lower Manhattan before things normalized. We’re lucky enough to live on a bit of high ground, so we weren’t flooded… but it was intense. Since there was no light, water, or electricity, I spent a lot of time playing acoustic guitar in the evenings.
Lee Ranaldo
People turn professional and they are not running as fast as they did in college because it is a lot different, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t have that kind of transition and always stayed on top.
Christian Coleman
I have stayed in homes that didn’t have basic infrastructure such as proper washrooms.
Roopa Ganguly
What’s amazing is that the taste of American men and international tastes in terms of beauty have essentially stayed the same. Styles change, but our view of beauty stays the same.
Hugh Hefner
I could have stayed at Southampton until I retired and finished my career there.
Adam Lallana
As an Olympic champion gymnast, I have always stayed involved in my sport.
Nadia Comaneci
If I had stayed there, swallowed my pride, been able to save Orlando all over again, which is what they were trying to get me to do there, I’d be O.K. now.
Penny Hardaway
I actually went to drama school at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama in Glasgow, so I stayed in my home town the whole time. However, I see more of my friends now than I did then. It’s strange.
James McAvoy
When I get drafty cold air in my ears, I would get an earache and get sick. I had to make sure I hustled and stayed well for my shows that I played.
Zac Brown
If I were going to stay in coaching, I would have stayed right there because I was totally happy.
Darrell Royal
I have stayed away from my family since I was 19-year-old because of my career in music.
Neha Bhasin
I’d like to have stayed in the Scouts beyond the age of 12.
James McAvoy
I took a gap year myself after high school and worked on a farm near Lyon, France. I stayed with the Vallet family, picked and packed fruit, and discovered that red wine can be a breakfast drink. That led to further travel as a university student.
Nicholas Kristof
When I was young, I despised old people. I was provincial and narrow-minded. It’s the reason I stayed stupid so long. If you only get involved with young people you don’t learn anything about the world.
Edmund White
If the ‘Chappelle’s Show’ had stayed on, I seriously doubt I would have developed this fast as a stand-up comedian. I probably would never have taken stand-up comedy really seriously.
Charlie Murphy
A strange potion runs through the basketball blood of Portland. It’s stayed hot from the days of games at the Memorial Coliseum, where the Blazers played from their inception in 1970 until 1995.
Rowan Ricardo Phillips
I’m very quiet. In the beginning, my brother would play the piano, and I would sing, because that’s what my mom and dad did. And then along the way, somebody teased me for even thinking that I could get up there. That stayed with me, and I became very shy.
Tyka Nelson
What has stayed true all the way through my work is my composition, I hope, and my sense of color.
Annie Leibovitz
For the most part, I’ve stayed as far away as possible from high school movies. I just don’t find them to be that relatable to everybody? They become like this: ‘Look at that period of time. Isn’t that interesting?’
Brie Larson
I didn’t want to call and schedule shows or call and make people listen to my music. Luckily, my friends and family really stayed on me and made me put myself out there.
Colbie Caillat
I don’t know how to sit outside myself and test against a hypothetical self who stayed home.
Thom Gunn
I definitely made the wrong choices. I left Holland too early, I probably should’ve stayed one more year for my development, but these things happen.
Ryan Babel
I stayed because it was normal. After the first hit, you don’t think they’re going to do it again. And it does escalate, but I stayed because it became normal. I didn’t call the police because I didn’t want them to go to jail and it just was normal.
My dad got me a huge board when I was little. He loves to surf. He suited me up and sent me out on this huge wave. I went under, and when I came out and the board hit me in the face. So I said, I never wanted to do this again. I stayed away until I was 13.
Shaun White
Growing up, we visited Devon and Cornwall where I learnt to surf and had my first horse riding lesson. We stayed in caravan parks and I have fond memories of Paignton and Newquay.
Paul Young
I was very lucky to have a father who read to us when we were children. And he didn’t just read books – he brought them alive. We couldn’t wait for the next chapter. So my love of reading started early and has stayed with me all my life.
Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall
Europeans really provided many venues over there and hailed the jazz artists, and a lot of musicians went over there and stayed over there for a long time. A lot of them moved over there, lived over there, and died over there.
Sonny Rollins
I stayed in Miami and New York until I was about nine, and then we moved to India and stayed there for about four years and eventually moved to Berlin. It was definitely a cultural experience in its fullest, and I absorbed a lot. I don’t regret any of it.
Amber Mark
I always take an Alastair Sawday guide. I stayed in three or four places in India that they had recommended, and every one of them was wonderful.
Diana Quick
I always signed autographs when I could and always stayed and chatted with them when I could.
Frank Langella
I went to Spain with my brother when I was about 17. We stayed near Barcelona and it was terrible. There were floods and I ended up missing my flight home.
Nasser Hussain
Brian came back in on the road and Al stayed, but Al’s the original member of the group.
Bruce Johnston
I’ve never stayed in a tent or a caravan in my life, and I never joined the Boy Scouts. I don’t see the point of going on holiday to enjoy less comfort than I have at home.
Terry Wogan
Some liberals think that describing any role that education gaps play in creating income inequality is some sort of sellout – that, in essence, you’re telling the middle class, ‘Tough luck; you should have stayed in college.’
Timothy Noah
When I was 11, I went to a sports school about an hour from home and stayed there during the week, only going home at weekends. That was hard, but it prepared me before I left for Bilbao; it made me stronger.
Aymeric Laporte
Eventually I ran for the board of the WTA, lost my first attempt, got on the board my second attempt, and stayed there through most of my career.
Pam Shriver
My style has stayed pretty consistent over the years. I always wear what I like and what is appropriate for the occasion.
Melania Trump
In ’71 or ’72 I returned to New Orleans and stayed there. I started cooking Louisiana food. Of all the things I had cooked, it was the best-and it was my heritage.
Paul Prudhomme
We shot ‘Oblivion’ in Iceland; that was amazing. It’s so, so beautiful. They didn’t have any Waldorf Hotels there, though; we stayed in the middle of nowhere!
Olga Kurylenko
My father was driven, active and always busy. We didn’t see that much of him, although he never went far away or stayed overnight anywhere.
Ardal O’Hanlon
My very first job was a cashier at Burger King in Tucson, Arizona. And I occasionally worked the drive-thru. I’d go wherever I was needed! My second job was at Dairy Queen. I stayed in the fast food royalty.
Kate Walsh
And, over the last thirty years we have seen men’s participation in both housework and childcare has increased and women’s have stayed at about the same.
James Levine
I’ve ruined a lot of hotel towels. I did a shoot in San Francisco and stayed at the Mandarin Oriental. I must have ruined thousands of dollars worth of towels. I dye my hair once a week. The dye is not temporary. It stains everything. It stains tiles, that’s how powerful it is.
Alvin Leung
I slept in van Gogh’s bed. I worked in the room where he painted. I saw the place where he was cared for when he cut off his ear. I lived in the jail cell where he stayed. And I looked out the window. You remember that picture of the cornfields through the bars? That was what I saw.
Irving Stone
We’ve stayed really normal and down to Earth I think, and haven’t let the success thing go to our head.
Ashley Olsen
It is hard for a young player at Real Madrid, they will always buy in new players and not look at the youths. If I stayed I could have been in the reserves for years.
Marcos Alonso
You know, the pessimism which exists now in the Middle East existed in Northern Ireland, but we stayed at it.
George J. Mitchell
If I could have stayed independent from the jump, then, maybe, things would have been different. ‘Return of 4Eva’ would have been an album instead of a mixtape.
Big K.R.I.T.
I always stayed for the first curtain call and people always said, ‘Who’s that?’ But this got me started in acting.
James Stewart
I stayed back in Delhi for a year-and-a-half while I was working in the corporate sector. My office was in Qutab Institutional Area, and I used to live in CR Park at that point.
Sayani Gupta
I moved to Dallas in 1975 and stayed there until 1980. That’s when I decided it was time to move to L.A.
Larry Drake
I had been on a vacation to Sharjah a couple of years ago and it was absolutely amazing. We stayed at this beautiful resort that itself was a place to behold as it was replete with water sports and other amenities.
Pranitha Subhash
We’re the first technology-creating species. We use technology to extend our reach. We didn’t stay in the caves, and we haven’t stayed on the planet. To play jazz with our genomes and the universe might ultimately be what we’re all about.
Jason Silva
I was always very grateful to ’em and am grateful to ’em now. I went back a couple of years ago and did their 20th anniversary show. But the longer I stayed on Hee Haw, the worse things got for me musically.
Buck Owens
I’m a unicorn in the world of journalism; I’ve stayed in the same mid-sized city, and that staying has allowed me to write two deeply-reported books.
Beth Macy
I was through as a manager. I did become involved late in the 1968 campaign at the national scene at the last minute. But I was through as a manager, and I’ve stayed through, incidentally.
Lew Wasserman
I was good at speech and debate and academics. I should’ve stayed in my lane, but I kept trying out for the basketball team. I thought I would make the N.B.A.
Hasan Minhaj
I stayed close to my family. My family never changed.
Haywood Nelson
Eventually, I gave up my sublet in Berlin and stayed in England for a long time – for about 20 years.
Darryl Pinckney
I always wanted to retire a Piston anyway. That’s where I stayed the longest and had most of my success. I always wanted to be remembered as a Piston.
Chauncey Billups
I know I was a businessman for years, and I stayed up countless nights worrying about having to let one person go. It’s a terrible thing to do.
Jim DeMint
My first job was in a nursing home – a terrible place in retrospect. It was in an old house, and the residents were so lonely. People rarely visited them. I only stayed there a couple of months, but it made a strong impression on me.
Kim Edwards
The band has always stayed close to its fans and not sold out. That’s a very rare thing. I can see how rare that is having been outside of the band for eight years. Maiden has integrity. I think people appreciate that.
Adrian Smith
When I got to New York, I had no place to sleep. The pay from ‘Sesame Street’ wasn’t enough to rent an apartment. I was staying on people’s couches. I stayed in the dressing room until they found out. I stayed with Jim Henson and his family for a week, and I wanted to do that permanently. I didn’t dare ask, though.
Caroll Spinney
I stayed with a family in the bush in Alaska and there were absolutely swarms of mosquitos. The crew were wearing full body nets but the family weren’t, so I decided that if I was going to do things properly I wouldn’t wear them either. I was eaten alive!
Ben Fogle
When I was 10 years old, we moved to Spain with my mother. I learned Spanish before I learned English. But the English language stayed with me.
Elif Safak
I promised never to let the Rwandan Genocide die because I knew the Rwandans didn’t have much power internationally and certainly didn’t have the resources. I felt it was my duty having witnessed it, and having stayed to witness it, that I had to talk about it and keep it going.
Romeo Dallaire
Sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I hadn’t become an actor. If perhaps I’d stayed on at university and become an academic.
Rory Kinnear
My mother missed having dinner with Lyndon Johnson because she couldn’t find the right hat to wear. While my father went off to the white house to break bread with the President, my mother, who’s not a things and stuff person, stayed at the hotel and tried on 10 different hats and missed dinner.
Emilio Estevez
‘Milk’ doesn’t imply that all gay men who stayed in the closet were cowards.
Edward Zwick
If I stayed in Florida, I would have a house and a dog and a partner. And, honestly, I was so bored.
Tituss Burgess
To me, I’m the epitome of what a ghetto child is: I was raised by a single parent; I stayed in apartments my whole life; I don’t think I’ve ever cut the grass.
Two Chainz
I was born in Mumbai. We stayed in a joint family. But in 1994, my father had to shift to Pune for business. I started working at a very early stage. Immediately after my SSC board examination, I took up odd jobs in shops, as I wanted to contribute to my family.
Amruta Khanvilkar
I started playing at six. I was at a school always playing football with my friends. But I was always bored at home. I asked my father if he could start me in a football team. He took me to a team called Rupel Boom, who were playing in the fourth division in Belgium, and I stayed there for four years.
Romelu Lukaku
I have heard a lot about Delhi’s food but never got a chance to try the street food here. The only food in Delhi I have had is in the hotels I have stayed in and it is always amazing.
Daisy Shah
Since the time I have graduated from college, I don’t think I have stayed in my house for two days at a stretch.
Abhinav Shukla
The story of Bennet Omalu is a riveting story; it’s just a riveting tale. I knew from the beginning if I stayed close to that kind of storytelling and focussed on the character, then the other stuff comes along with it, and the message becomes baked into the journey.
Peter Landesman
I love ‘Saturday Night Live,’ and I really feel like people who have left before me have always stayed with the show. They never really quite left, which is nice. Everyone kind of stays close.
Fred Armisen
Where ever the Mavericks are today, we owe it to Michael Finley. He was the one guy who stayed when we were a terrible team. He stayed and fought the fight.
Don Nelson
Over 10 years, MindTree has been ahead of most IT companies on operating and financial metrics. We have stayed true to our long-term vision and have not been buffeted by short-term.
Ashok Soota
The Stones were more dangerous than other bands of the Sixties. It looked like they had more fun than the Beatles – like they stayed up later.
Alex Lifeson
Already we’re seeing graduates of U.S. higher education going back to their home countries and contributing to societies there, where in the past they would have stayed in the U.S. and built new companies here. We have to have immigration reform that allows talented foreigners to become Americans.
David Malpass
Like most actors, I’ve always been grateful for Chinese restaurants; they were often the only places that stayed open late enough for performers to get hot food after the show.
Ginger Rogers
You have to get over being shy, and just be comfortable with yourself, and I think that for me, if I’d stayed in a small town, I’d be a different person.
Marisa Miller
A lot of these kids have gone to Montana State University and become engineers, but they go to work for Boeing in Seattle. They would have stayed if there had been a job here.
Greg Gianforte
I entered the University of Natal as a preliminary-year student in 1966 and stayed on to June 1972, when I was expelled from the university. I was then doing third-year medicine.
Steven Biko
I don’t work all day, every day on ‘Rizzoli & Isles,’ but I work every day. It may be a scene or two, or it may be an enormous workload, but there’s really not a lot of room for anything else, and that’s the choice I made. And that’s why I stayed away from TV before: Because I know that that’s what it is.
Bruce McGill
When I see friends from school I think they’ve all grown old and I’ve stayed the same.
Steve Coogan
Well Brooke, I’ve always liked her, and when I was little I used to stay with Diana Ross, me and my brothers stayed with her for years and I never said, but I always had a crush on her.
Michael Jackson
I had a husband who stayed with me, and small children, and I had no choice but to pull myself together and rebuild a different kind of life. There was no other choice.
Kimberly Quinn
I wish that the adults who are ‘in power’ cared more about what their children read. Books are incredibly powerful when we are young – the books I read as a child have stayed with me my entire life – and yet, the people who write about books, for the most part, completely ignore children’s literature.
Gabrielle Zevin
I come from Maceio, where it is very hot all year around. I moved to Florinoples in the south, which is very cold. I passed the tests that were asked of me there, and that got me the move to Germany. I could have stayed in Brazil, but I wanted the challenge.
Roberto Firmino
During my pregnancy I ate healthily, stayed fit and carried well.
Denise Lewis
Every time I wanted to go out and do an event, go out and do a show, I used to come drop my child at my mother’s home and then I stayed back two days and I used to feel, ‘I’m so much more comfortable here.’
Mahima Chaudhry
It’s good when you get to travel and see different places. I went with Alexander Povetkin, who fought Anthony Joshua, to Russia and stayed in Moscow for a bit.
Daniel Dubois
My mom broke the mold. She put my brother and I first, always, and worked her fingers to the bone trying to provide for us. She taught us right from wrong and gave us very strong morals and values and belief in family, things that have stayed with me.
Tim Howard
From B.A. to M.A. and on to Ph.D., my academic career was all smooth sailing. Upon receiving my degrees, I stayed on to teach at Beijing Normal University.
Liu Xiaobo
When the success of ‘Crazy Rich’ hit, it’s like everybody knows exactly who you are, and the way that they speak to you is different. I’ve stayed the same throughout. It’s just people’s perception of you changes.
Henry Golding
The lack of ‘quality’ films in Pakistan was one of the reasons why I stayed away.
Saba Qamar
I believe that anything man himself can do for me, God can do for me in a greater way. I decided to pray and to seek God on my own. I just stayed in The Word. And it worked.
Mary J. Blige
I’ve always known a lot of very bad people, destructive, brutes of a certain kind. Then I’ve seen these lovely impulses and what not, and they’ve stayed with me and comforted me.
Paula Fox
When I was in Switzerland, I still had the fantasy I could have saved my parents and family if I’d stayed in Germany. All nonsense. If they had not made the sacrifice to send their only child to Switzerland, I wouldn’t be alive.
Ruth Westheimer
When I first started making music, I was pretty drawn to hip-hop beats wrapped together with super-good lyrics. The most important thing in that is wordplay, so that stayed with me when I started writing songs.
Gus Dapperton
I think I wrote the first draft of ‘Nightmare on Elm Street’ in ’79. No one wanted to buy it. Nobody. I felt very strongly about it, so I stayed with it and kept paying my assistant and everything. At a certain point, I was literally flat broke.
Wes Craven
Just as my search for my mother had in some ways shaped my life, her faith that I was alive had shaped hers. She couldn’t search, but she did the next best thing: She stayed still.
Saroo Brierley
What’s important in the filmmaking process has stayed the same. Keep it small, keep it personal, keep it authentic, work with people you like and trust. That process is much longer than the filmmaking process. The development process is a long one, so try and say something of importance.
Simon Beaufoy
On YouTube, I’ve stayed very limited with what I’ve been willing to share, so it’s been very surface-level with Miranda.
Colleen Ballinger
The fact that on the day I came back to City we stayed in the UEFA Cup through a last-minute own goal against Midtjylland and then won a dramatic penalty shoot-out made me smile.
Shaun Wright-Phillips
I’ve stayed in the best hotels in the world, but you could put me in prison, and I’d still have fun.
Lee Pearson
I like following whatever’s right for me at any given time. I could have stayed with Free for 40 years, but it becomes a corporate entity after a while, and once I become locked into it and governed by it and am expected to do a certain thing all of the time, I tend to want to move on.
Paul Rodgers
I was born in Pondicherry. Both my parents are French. They met in Pondicherry in the ’70s, got married, and stayed back in India.
Kalki Koechlin
We all fled from religion. Living la vida loca, whatever. The ’60s, you know. But it always stayed in my heart. As I got older, I started coming back to religion.
Dion DiMucci
I am not naive, and I do realize that racism is alive and well in the United States of America. I am also fully aware that when segregation ended, we didn’t all live happily ever after. No one can convince me, however, that life in America would be better if blacks and whites had stayed separate and unequal.
Maysoon Zayid
Growing up in Terre Haute, Indiana, there’s not a whole lot to do. What I did was I just went to the basketball court at the Boys & Girls Club and literally stayed there all day until my mom got off of work.
Greg Oden
My first venture to Qatar was with WWE. It was an incredible tour and we stayed at a luxurious hotel. I ventured out by myself and wandered down to a shopping center and there was beautiful architecture everywhere.
Matt Sydal
I am very proud of what I have done since I turned professional. It’s been great to become the first teenager to win three times, to have played in some Majors and the Masters, and to have twice broken into the world’s top 50 and stayed there for a bit of time.
Matteo Manassero
I stayed in the ghetto. Then I stayed in condos, then I stayed in penthouses, and then I stayed in mansions.
Young Thug
Families used to come from somewhere, and that’s where they stayed.
Alan Gerry
At the end of the day, I looked at my options. I wanted to be in the NBA. I wanted to pursue my dream. It was my choice. But sometimes, just for fun, I think about how it would’ve been if I’d stayed in college.
Chris Bosh
I didn’t want to be president of the World Wildlife Fund. I was asked to do it. I’d much rather have stayed in the navy, frankly.
Prince Philip
I remember my very first training session. It was raining hard. It was cold, and I went home. I couldn’t train. I stayed for ten minutes then told my dad to take me home.
Anthony Martial
My dad was a janitor for U.S. Radium Corporation, and he stayed there for 37 years. So he didn’t read.
Walter Dean Myers
I didn’t realize I wanted to write about D.C. until after 2000. Even though I was a comedy writer, I stayed away from that subject on purpose. It took attaining some distance and perspective.
Kristin Gore
Sauber had a bad championship the year after they fired me and so if I had stayed it would have not been so good. Sometimes life does these things to you because it’s the right thing. You think it’s wrong, ‘initially, but life proves different.
Felipe Massa
I have stayed positiv,e and I believe I am still improving in every competition I enter.
Katie Taylor
I’ve stayed buddies with my old buddy Jackie Slater. I talk to Jackie Slater. I play golf with Marcus Allen a lot. I play golf with Marshall Faulk a lot. My buddy Craig Young, he lives up in New Mexico. I still talk to a lot of the guys.
Eric Dickerson
I went on to Cincinnati. I had got a taste of the big cities and them bright lights. I stayed there until I was about 18 or 19 and then I went on to Detroit.
John Lee Hooker
I had to change the shape of my own voice. It was quite hard to pull off and so once I had it, I stayed in Hitchcock’s voice all day on set.
Toby Jones
It was about 105 degrees in Chicago. And that’s a time when everybody gets tired. I came into the clubhouse, and everybody was sitting around, and I said, ‘Beautiful day. Let’s play two!’ And everybody looked at me like I was crazy. There were a couple of writers around, and they wrote that, and it stayed with me.
Ernie Banks
When I was in grad school, I wrote one early story that was Vegas, and then I stayed away from it. I was trying to expand and do different things. I knew I would write about it, but I stayed away for as long as I could.
Charles Bock
Because of the need to remove all modernism, we stayed in the middle of nowhere all day long, living out of tents. It was cold. It definitely set the scene.
Skeet Ulrich
One of my friend’s dad owned a grocery store, and one of the kids who worked at the grocery store was a wrestler. We got tickets to one of the shows, and then we stayed after, and they asked us if we wanted to get in there and train a little bit.
To me, there was nothing greater than to play for an audience and to entertain people and that has stayed with me all these years.
Bobby Vinton
My father and mother should have stayed in New York, where they met and married and where I was born.
Frank McCourt
At this point, because we have stayed the same course for so many years, I feel like we are freer to make choices that are motivated by what feels right creatively at a given point in time.
Mike McCready
My parents divorced when I was six but stayed close.
Andrew Zimmern
When my dad retired, he moved to Georgia, but I stayed in California. I was in San Francisco: that’s where I first went from being a musician to making beats and producing. I was 18, 19. It started going pretty good for me out there in California, so I stayed in SF while my parents moved to Georgia.
I’ve seen a lot of the United States, having stayed in so many different cities and towns for work.
Hope Davis
When it comes to the changing room, belief is a huge thing. It’s one of the strongest attributes I have ever had and it has stayed with me from the very beginning.
Eoin Morgan
We had built up a team in Edmonton that really knew who each other was from a personal standpoint and from a professional standpoint. Our nucleus had stayed together for a long time.
Mark Messier
I really started to forget things. That’s why I quit reciting statistics: because I couldn’t remember them exactly, and I stayed away from mentioning some players by name because I really wasn’t sure, and I didn’t want to make a mistake.
Terry Bradshaw
CompUSA was a bad decision. We stayed too much with CompUSA, and we stayed too short with Apple.
Carlos Slim
I often think that the last holiday is the greatest, but then some really stand out in my mind. One of the best was one my wife and I had in the Lake District. We stayed in a B&B and walked around the countryside for two weeks.
Jay Parini
Way before we got a record deal, we were playing clubs seven nights a week, three one-hour sets a night. Then we got the record deal, and we took off on the road and stayed out.
Dimebag Darrell
I’ve got a very short attention span, and this has been part of the reason I’m so kind of dumbfounded at the fact that I’ve still stayed with music. Nothing has ever stuck for me, and music’s the only thing that’s managed to stick out for a long period of time.
Gin Wigmore
I was on a tour of a Restoration comedy in 1996, and in Moscow we stayed at the Metropole hotel, off Red Square. The food there was opulent, but in the Maly theatre canteen, there were just a few pieces of rye bread, peanuts, and gherkins. I stood in the queue and burst into tears.
Nicola Walker
I’m very comfortable in Argentina. I was raised there as a baby and stayed there until I was 11 years old, so the first decade of my life or my formative years were spent in Argentina. I stayed in tune with the food, music and language.
Viggo Mortensen
If I had stayed in Belfast, my life there wouldn’t have as easy as it was in Scotland. I see the strain on the people who stayed. Always worrying about the safety of their children.
Joan Lingard
CNBC really did dominate. Could I have stayed there and continued doing what I was doing? Yes. I had been there for seven years and I was looking for an opportunity to help me grow in immediate terms.
Margaret Brennan
I feel really lucky to be in a band where the guys, for all the opportunities to do things that potentially would be good for them but detrimental to the group, that everybody stayed loyal to the whole.
Mike Shinoda
High heels weren’t always a girl thing. In the fifteen-hundreds, the riding shoes of French noblemen were fitted with raised heels so that their feet stayed put in the stirrups. Over the next few decades, heels inched higher on dress shoes, particularly among men of privilege.
Patricia Marx
They said if I stayed in the orphanage for another month or so, I basically would not have been able to be alive.
Oksana Masters
I never quit. The times when I have quit in the past because I couldn’t face trying harder have stayed with me, and the guilt is not worth it.
Lizzie Armitstead
Most people who came here came for economic reasons or sometimes for religious or political reasons. I didn’t have any of this. I came here, I liked it, I stayed. So I’m a pure American – even more than people who are born here – because I did it by choice as an adult.
Jacques Pepin
I did go to Beijing, with a two-year assignment. I stayed four years. And those four years were the most formative four years in my life. What I learned was more than I would have learned in 10 years in America or Europe, and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
Dinesh Paliwal
I didn’t go to school, because I never stayed anywhere long enough, so I was completely closed off from the outside world. I had no idea about anything.
Neon Hitch
Over the years, I’ve interviewed the victims, the guilty, the famous, the important, and the ordinary people affected by tragedy or good fortune. But strangely, it is not always the people in the spotlight that have stayed with me. It is often those on the periphery, the bit players in the drama, that continue to haunt.
Fiona Barton
In 2000 I became captain and stayed till 2005, and this was a very successful time in Indian cricket, so it was a satisfying tenure for me.
Sourav Ganguly
I’ve always stayed independent, but I’ve always felt an obligation to make movies an untutored audience could like.
Paul Morrissey
We’ve been around, and we’ve stayed around, and we go out, and people still enjoy listening to us, and we still sell a lot of tickets, so what do I got to complain about? Nothing.
Robin Zander
I’m a big guy, but I play with a guard mentality. I got that from my dad, and it’s always stayed with me.
Ben Simmons
I could have stayed at West Brom but I want to be constantly involved, I want to be relied upon like I have been all my career. It’s been horrible not to feel that.
Rickie Lambert
Clubs have always wanted to buy me during the summer but I have always stayed loyal because I wanted to stay at Arsenal.
Freddie Ljungberg
One of my clearest impressions about India as a child was that my parents’ stories would have been impossible had they stayed. Of course, such a vision was self-serving, for it made a virtue of our displacement.
Anand Giridharadas
I left Sudan when I was 25 or 26 years old. If I had stayed, I would never have ended up being an entrepreneur. You can have the qualities, but if you don’t have the environment, you just wither away. It’s like a fish: take it out of water, it will not survive.
Mo Ibrahim
The real deal is when you are friends with someone said since ninth standard or college days: the person who has been with you through your struggle and stayed with you through thick and thin.
Mohit Chauhan
I studied law at university and wanted to go on a working holiday in Sydney. I got a job at the Sydney Morning Herald and later on a TV station, and that was that. I stayed there for four years.
Carol Thatcher
Have you ever stayed at the Four Seasons Hotel in Mumbai? I’d warmly recommend it. It’s super luxurious, and right next door, there’s a classic slum. So you can do a quick slum tour and get back to your sanctuary without any inconvenience but with some excellent snaps.
Geoff Dyer
I vividly remember throwing a bowl of porridge at my husband Rayne once when he defended the children instead of me – the patch on the ceiling stayed for years.
Prue Leith
I spent two great seasons playing in the Russian championship. I could have stayed there, but I went to the Premier League, which is much more competitive and requires much greater levels of fitness.
Samuel Eto’o
When you look at a kitchen, you tend to see that the people who are doing really well are those who have worked with the same chef or stayed in one restaurant for a significant amount of time.
Daniel Humm
Most marriages are a mess, and the children get caught between two bitter, antagonistic parents. My parents stayed married for 27 unhappy years, till their kids were grown, and this was a catastrophe for us.
Anne Lamott
I tried to go to university, and I stayed there for one year, but I didn’t do much there because I already had a contract with Benfica.
Bernardo Silva
I’ve always looked up to players who have stayed with one team their entire careers.
Nikola Vucevic
After earning my Ph.D., I stayed at the Max-Planck Institute as a postdoc, working on laser excitation of Rydberg states of triatomic hydrogen and helium hydride. I also succeeded in analyzing all the emission spectra of helium hydride, which I had discovered during my Ph.D.
Wolfgang Ketterle
If only Vivien Leigh had stayed in England, that part would have been mine.
Joan Bennett
My parents were into The Mills Brothers, Perry Como, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Sarah Vaughn, and all those people sung the most wonderful songs – and even when I got into rock ‘n’ roll, that stayed with me.
Anne Murray
I felt like my pregnancy was a sacred moment for me. I stayed in Boston and I didn’t work apart from the contracts I have, and then I only let them use my face.
Gisele Bundchen
I just have to continue to get better and continue to learn. Whatever unfolds, I want people to know I stayed a pro and performed.
Rodney Hood
Ryan Giggs pretty much won everything there is to win in the game. He made over 900 appearances for the club and always stayed loyal to Manchester United, which is really impressive.
Jesse Lingard
I have to say that sports is what kept me out of trouble. No matter the circumstances, my mom kept us playing sports. She worked hard to provide for us and even harder to make sure we always stayed active. Whether it was football or basketball, we were playing one sport or another year-round.
Rashard Lewis
A lot of people around me were really staggeringly rich, which I never have been. I walked in between the raindrops of real money, but I’ve stayed happy.
Carmen Dell’Orefice
As for poker, I’ve stayed away from that, even though when I was in Vegas for Ocean’s Eleven, I would get accosted by these guys begging me to play. They just want to take my money. They see me, think ‘actor’ and see some easy money.
Matt Damon
I was on Saipan when I got hit. Not too bad, but bad enough to hamper me if I stayed. I was hit in my left buttocks just below the belt line.
Lee Marvin
I’m a very explosive player and need everything to be right. I started working with an osteopath the last year I was in Madrid and have stayed with him.
Arjen Robben
Nothing’s really been handed to me, and I’ve stayed in the game long enough to get an opportunity that I’ve been hopefully knocking it out of the park every chance I get.
Ethan Carter III
I feel that a heroine or a leading character is someone who stays back with you, and I would like to believe that all my characters have stayed with people.
Bhumi Pednekar
So, quite often, there are hardly any breaks. But that’s fine with me as, at one point of time, I had stayed home for months without work. I have taken all the rest I needed then.
Tovino Thomas
When I first started playing at Norwich, West Brom were in the Championship, got promoted, got relegated, got promoted, got relegated, and all the time, they were building until they eventually stayed up.
Robert Green
To fly into Moscow was a joy. I was trying to understand what people were thinking and how to earn money. In the end, I stayed.
Suleyman Kerimov
When I look back, maybe I would change some things. Maybe the move to Germany was too early and I should have stayed at Chelsea a bit longer.
Andre Schurrle
The suburb in the 1950s was a bedroom community. The father worked in the city, and the mother stayed home. Now people live and work in the suburbs, and businesses have grown up or moved from cities to certain pockets of what was once the suburbs and created these places that are like cities.
Richard Hayne
In 1949 – my father stayed on in Shanghai after the war. But in 1949, the Communists took over the whole of China, and in fact, my father was caught by the Communists in Shanghai. And he was there for about a year until he was finally able to get out.
J. G. Ballard
I went to Italy as a 21-year-old when I could easily have stayed in Argentina, playing for the biggest club in the land, River Plate, and having a nice, comfortable life.
Hernan Crespo
I think I went to Italy initially for the art, architecture, food and history, but I stayed there because of the people in Cortona.
Frances Mayes
I started out in New York, and New York has a way of countering a Southern accent, naturally; when I moved to Los Angeles for a job, and I just stayed, the dialect out here doesn’t really counter, and my Southern started coming back.
Kim Dickens
I stayed in the astronaut program until 1993. People ask me why I left. I thought I had a lot of things to contribute that would be difficult to do if I stayed. I thought I could have a stronger voice as an advocate for space exploration. So I ended up starting my own technology consulting company.
Mae Jemison
I learned to love bluegrass, but my first love stayed hard country.
Keith Whitley
I’ve always been interested in the Greek tragedies. A few years back, I re-read a translation of the ‘The Oresteia,’ and that stayed with me, and slowly this idea of using some of those old legends and plays to tell a new story about modern urban life began to form.
Peter Milligan
I have stayed true to that first idea that people can have a day in their lives that is very important and if they can reconnect with that day, reconnect with the people they were then, they can suddenly revive their emotions.
Victoria Wood
It cannot be so very surprising that I adopted a Communist viewpoint in the 1930s; so many of my contemporaries made the same choice. But many of those who made that choice in those days changed sides when some of the worst features of Stalinism became apparent. I stayed the course.
Kim Philby
Too many of my Senate colleagues overdid it. They stayed on too long – napping through committee hearings when they should have packed up and gone home.
Leverett Saltonstall
If I were LeBron, I would have gone to Chicago or I would have stayed home and showed a little more loyalty to my city and my team. But I’m not LeBron.
Stephen Jackson
I’m happy I’ve stayed because Rome has become my home and an indelible part of my life, in an almost unreal way.
Edin Dzeko
Mum stayed home to look after us, and Dad was an electrician, working long hours to support us. We never went without, but we did have to be careful.
Steph Houghton
‘The Danish Girl’ was published in 2000. Then it, too, would disappear, as most books do. It fell out of print almost everywhere. I wrote other books and, as an editor, worked on dozens more. Yet always, Lili stayed with me.
David Ebershoff
I’ve read pretty broadly on the Holocaust – both fiction and non-fiction – and to me, ‘The Lost Wife’ is one of the best. The horrors of war serve as a backdrop to a love affair that spans a lifetime, and that love story stayed with me long after I put down the book.
Lauren Weisberger
Grub Street Writers is the reason I’ve stayed in Boston. I started teaching for Grub back in 1997, when founder Eve Bridburg, a Boston University M.A. alumna, as I am, kindly gave me my first job out of grad school.
Jenna Blum
I don’t have many regrets in my life. But I have one. I would have stayed sober all along.
Marty Stuart
There were a lot of fighters who were better than me that got knocked out and stopped because they stayed in the game too long. That never happened to me. I don’t know that feeling. I thank God so much that that didn’t happen to me.
Naseem Hamed
For me, I like to look presentable when I’m outside. I’m not going to come to the office with nasty hair and pajamas just because I stayed up all night – that’s just who I am.
Yoon Ahn
You stayed up on the record business by knowing who was doing what. You watched the Phil Spectors. That’s what told you what to do, what was hot.
George Clinton
My grandmother came with me when I moved out to New York. She stayed with me for a week. I was, you know, living in the dorm. The first year, I had a lot of anxiety, and, I remember, my teachers kept saying I had so much jaw tension.
Jessica Chastain
I think our core fans have stayed true to us, and I want to thank them for staying with us.
Martie Maguire
I stayed with them for about a year up there and, at night, worked over in Long Island at a club called The High Hat Club which was like a pseudo jazz / blues place.
William Bell
The first record we made in three days. We literally stayed up for three days making the first album. It was crazy, crazy, crazy for us to do that. We couldn’t believe anyone would give us a record deal. I look back on that record fondly but with just the slightest bit of a cringe.
John Rzeznik
I stayed away from mathematics not so much because I knew it would be hard work as because of the amount of time I knew it would take, hours spent in a field where I was not a natural.
Carl Sandburg
I always stayed in tune with my own ambitions and attitudes and I’m still my intractable old self, for better or worse.
LeRoy Neiman
I’ve really stayed up with the cardio, because I know the Heat are going to make sure they want us in shape, the best shape, our body fat and stuff like that. So I’ve been really keeping up with my cardio.
Tyler Herro
I could see flames from the windows of my chambers. For the next three or four days we had major rioting here in Washington and I stayed at the court day and night.
Harold H. Greene
I’m from the same area as Gucci Mane. I stayed off Bouldercrest road. I stayed off Glenwood.
I’ve stayed sharp, basically through football workouts. I cater those workouts to track-specific things, so I don’t lose the rhythm I’ve always had to keep football and track in balance.
Marquise Goodwin
The first draft of ‘Ex Machina’ is extremely different than the finished film. That would be like 10% of the original draft stayed into the shooting script.
Alex Garland
I am most proud that I stayed true to the music of my soul.
Wynonna Judd
I am a fanatic when it comes to the game, so I need to know there is a golf course not far away when I’m on holiday, such as when I stayed at the Four Seasons Resort Nevis. It is a beautiful hotel with a great golf course, which made it even better.
Viv Richards
I got caught up in doing records for other artists. I just stayed behind the scenes, and time just kinda passed.
Missy Elliott
After a hellish decade, my son got and stayed sober.
David Sheff
I think kids should go to high school until they’re 30. No, really, because people are staying younger now and there’s nothing to do. If you stayed longer, then it would be really great.
Andy Warhol
In the ’50s, I was traveling alone all over Mindanao, Basilan, all the way to Tawi-Tawi with just a camera and a notebook. I always stayed in the houses of Moros.
F. Sionil Jose
I figured as long as the music stayed hot and important and good, that there would always be a reason for ‘Soul Train.’
Don Cornelius
I went to Queen’s University Belfast and stayed nine months, then I ran away to be an actor.
Simon Callow
First off, it’s wonderful how much people are supporting me and felt I should have stayed in the competition.
LaToya London
Next door, there’s an old man who lived to his nineties and one day passed away in his sleep. And his wife, she stayed for a couple of days and passed away. I’m sorry, I know that’s a strange way to tell you that I know we belong.
Ben Folds
Part of the decision I made was to move very fluidly from one medium to the other, and so it has stayed as part of who I am. I don’t know if I have a preference.
Joe Morton
I didn’t do it for the money. I know a lot of people say that, but if I’d wanted to be rich, I’d have stayed working as a city lawyer. I gave that up eight years ago and took a massive drop in salary, and I didn’t mind because I was doing what I loved. There’s plenty of material for the other five books.
Michelle Paver
My mom and dad never really had friends, never went on vacations. We stayed home. And I see a similarity there: A general anxiety runs pretty deep.
Adam Granduciel
You would think, because I stayed to myself and I was shy, that I’d be a good student, but actually, I was a bad student. I was in detention a lot, mainly for cutting, being late to class. I was in tardy hall a lot. I hate the idea of homework. I don’t get it.
Bryson Tiller
I ended up getting sent off at The Dell against Liverpool for two bookable offences. I think that was the lowest point of my career. I ran straight into the dressing-room and stayed there, alone, until the final whistle.
Matt Le Tissier
It was definitely some tough moments throughout my life, but I kind of stayed focused and came through the other end of the tunnel.
Victor Cruz
I wish I had stayed and finished my career here in New York.
Patrick Ewing
I love Duke. Wish I could’ve stayed a second year, but I had other things to do.
Zion Williamson
Little Steven – the songwriter, producer, and arranger – stayed alive doing the ‘Lilyhammer’ score. That pretty much took up three or four years of my life, and all of my musical energy went into that.
Steven Van Zandt
Everyone wrote our obituary but us and the coaches and the kids who stayed with us. The obit was, ‘Vanderbilt will have to leave the Southeastern Conference. All the coaches are leaving, and all the students are transferring.’
Gordon Gee
I’ve stayed friends with the boys I’ve known since I was 10.
Barry Keoghan
My mom and dad? Oh, they were a fiery pair. They stayed together for the kids and also because they were hopelessly in love with each other, but they were totally incompatible.
Peter Scolari
I stayed true to my dreams and, eventually, they came true.
Kevin Hart
I did a minor in creative writing in college, but I didn’t start writing until I stayed at home with my own children.
Vanessa Diffenbaugh
The Grand Ole Opry was my favorite. That’s when I got to discover the stuff inside the Grand Ole Opry, like Hank Williams’ clothes, the dressing room Taylor Swift stayed in and some other things. Then I got to perform.
Mason Ramsey
I take inspiration from books, movies, television, music – it all goes in the hopper. Depending on the project, I’m drawing from this or that piece of art that has stayed with me. Toni Morrison, George Romero, Sonic Youth – they are all in there.
Colson Whitehead
If I’d stayed at home I’d have married as a virgin. But, in the heady post-war years, I fell in love all the time.
June Brown
The results would have stayed on the watch face until the batteries died. But trying to make time stand still this way would have been a mistake. It is just as important to erase times eventually as to save them at first.
Joe Henderson
I left the North when I was 21 to go to drama school in London, and I stayed there 12 years.
Maxine Peake
In my first few years of being in New York, I had a major identity crisis because I’d never stayed in one place for so long.
I would watch a lot of old tapes of David Letterman doing his talk show and a lot of interviews. I never had a mentor in my career because my approach has always been so different. Letterman stayed true to who he was, and his staff was always fantastic, so for me, that was always important.
Bobby Bones
I recruited my dad to be my bass player and fired him on several occasions. He stayed on as a bus driver.
Chely Wright
Well, I loved variety in television, I loved sketch comedy. At ‘Saturday Night Live,’ I stayed almost seven years.
Dana Carvey
Demetrie came to wait on my grandmother in 1955 and stayed for 32 years. It was common, in Mississippi, to have a black domestic cleaning the kitchen, cooking the meals, looking after the white children.
Kathryn Stockett
Ever since my husband expired, I’ve been even more careful in bringing up my kids, and stayed away from work.
Zeenat Aman
If my mama and daddy would’ve stayed together, one of them would’ve been dead, and the other would have been locked up for it.
Trick Daddy
My parents have tried not to intrude. They kind of stayed apart from my gymnastics but are very supportive, and that’s very helpful as a gymnast to not have your parents say, ‘Did you do this today?’ and just be very on top of you.
Laurie Hernandez
I had a reporter ask me what it was like to have my best years over so soon. It stayed with me.
Sam Raimi
There are some people who have stayed with us our whole career, which is pretty cool too.
Mike McCready
I always liked having a good time. I got into this business because I got fired from any job I ever had because I stayed out late playing music.
Jerry Jeff Walker
Movie stars are doing TV series, and former TV stars are doing guest shots. Everybody gets bumped down the line. That’s affected everyone in the industry. I’ve been lucky; I’ve stayed busy. I’ll cross my fingers until it’s my turn to be sitting around, not working. I’m sure that’ll happen, too.
Zeljko Ivanek
In the late 20th century, it became possible to travel between cultures, between the old world and the new, with great ease. So when you go back, you take the changed person with you who, in turn, changes things that otherwise might have stayed the same.
Shyam Selvadurai
I have evolved over the years, just as we all have, but I definitely have stayed true to who I am.
Jeffree Star
Do I have chocolate chip cookies? Yes, I do. Do I have mint chocolate chip milkshakes? Yes, I do. I love them. They are fantastic. But when I have them, they’re worth it. I earned them. I did something. I worked out super hard. I stayed clean on food.
Jocko Willink
Often, I think, displaced people imagine themselves leading double lives. So a portion of my identity has always been privately siphoned into what would have been if I had stayed in Wisconsin.
Mona Simpson
I lived on a farm with cows, and I lived in the city with rats. My family stayed in Colorado for a while, then went from Los Angeles to Arizona. People would ask me where I’m from, and I would have to say, ‘I don’t have a clear answer for you.’
Jason Behr
I spent much of my childhood in northern Quebec, and often there was no radio, no television – there wasn’t a lot to entertain us. When it rained, I stayed inside reading, writing, drawing.
Margaret Atwood
Obviously, just from being an athlete, from being a wrestler keeping in shape just in general is something that stayed with me even being out of the ring for a while, but then eventually been lucky enough to be here in Chicago.
Aiden English
The basis of everything that I plugged into when I was younger was blues, and it always stayed with me.
Eric Burdon
I went into rehab December 14th, 1996, and got out eight months later? Then I went into a sober living place where I stayed for three months. I’ve been clean for a good year and a half.
Marc Wallice
I started performing with the Boston Children’s Opera when I was 5, and I stayed working with that group until I was about 12 or 13, so that was a huge part of my life. It was, weirdly, an extremely professional environment geared towards kids.
Barrett Wilbert Weed
If I’d stayed on in London and carried on going to literary parties, it would have wrecked me as a writer.
Colin Wilson
I came up in 1941 and I played against men who played in the 1930s. I stayed until 1963 playing against men who will be playing in the 1970s. So I think I can feel qualified to say that baseball really was a great game, and baseball is really a great game, and baseball will always be a great game.
Stan Musial
I once stayed at a Ritz in D.C., paid for by a client, and when I asked to change rooms because mine smelled of smoke, the hotel immediately found me a better room, then paid for my dinner and drinks and even threw in a free massage to compensate me for the very minor inconvenience.
Shawn Achor
I hitchhiked, took trucks ‘n’ trains – anything that would pick me up. I stopped in Memphis for about six months and they found me and come got me. Stayed about a month an’ split again.
John Lee Hooker
People stayed with me and worked extra hard for me because I could see the potential in them – I’m not so sure they could see the potential in me.
Barbara Corcoran
I can remember being in my pram: children stayed in their prams much longer then than they do now. A big bouncy pram with black covers and a hood with metal clips that could trap your fingers. I was looking up at my sister who was sitting on the pram seat, with her back to me.
Helen Dunmore
We all have a hungry heart, and one of the things we hunger for is happiness. So as much as I possibly could, I stayed where I was happy.
Mary Oliver
It really has stayed practically the same. It wasn’t like I used to do wild punk make-up: no, I always had the same vision.
Francois Nars
From age 16 on, I found school boring and failed A-level Physics at my first attempt. This was necessary for university entrance, and so I stayed an extra year to repeat it. This time, I did splendidly and was admitted to Sheffield University, my first choice because of their excellent Chemistry Department.
Richard J. Roberts
I should have stayed an athlete, body well-tuned, cruising around with my accountant in a Porsche, maroon and chrome.
Jim Carroll
If I knew I couldn’t win races, I would have stayed in the States.
Jacques Villeneuve
Move to Italy. I mean it: they know about living in debt; they don’t care. I stayed out there for five months while I was making a film called ‘Order Of Death,’ and they’ve really got it sussed. Nice cars. Sharp suits. Great food. Stroll into work at 10. Lunch from 12 till three. Leave work at five. That’s living!
John Lydon
I’ve always worked hard and stayed focused.
Lyoto Machida
After high school, I enrolled at the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, but I stayed only a year and a half. I felt college was a waste of time; I wanted to start working.
Evan Williams
New York was very frightening and very overwhelming, and I didn’t really know anybody. My sister had some friends there, and I stayed with them, then I moved in with a friend of a friend. I was very outside my comfort zone. Then again, I was pretty uncomfortable in general – but I knew it was where I was supposed to be.
Andrew W.K.
India – I’ve always felt at home there. Delhi and Mumbai and the Taj Mahal are all incredible – but it’s the people I love. Indians are so interesting and accommodating and friendly. The best hotel I’ve stayed at there is the Rambagh Palace in Jaipur: its architecture is unbelievable.
Andrew Flintoff
We always stayed true to what the Ramones are.
Joey Ramone
For better or worse, I don’t necessarily categorize myself as a method actor; I’m not going to make claims that I stayed in character 24/7.
Rebecca Hall
I really was the nerd in the car that read vocabulary books. If we were going on day trips, I would quite like to have just stayed in the car with my German and French vocab books. It’s embarrassing to admit to it now.
Susie Dent
The place I most missed my husband and family was when I stayed at Giraffe Manor, which is a crazy hotel in Kenya where giraffes wander around sticking their necks in through the top-floor windows for snacks.
Monica Galetti
It used to tear me up when we lost games, it stayed in me for weeks. I was a bad loser at everything. When we used to play board games, I had fights with my family and I had to go to my room.
Nathan Ake
I saw a bumper sticker once that stayed with me: ‘God help me become the person my dog thinks I am.’ I don’t have the heart for this. Meaning, of course, that I’m the failure.
Neil Macdonald
First and foremost: I’m a metal fan. I’m a musician, an artist, but I’m a complete fan and I’ve never grown out of the complete fan faze I had when I was 13 or 14 – that’s always stayed with me. I’m always trying to discover new bands.
Max Cavalera
Listen to the great guitarists of the Fifties. They didn’t do that nasty sort of industrial distortion. They played musical compositions as solos – Scotty Moore, Cliff Gallup, Django Reinhardt. There wasn’t a bad note in any of those solos. I listened to that and stayed with those rules.
Jeff Beck
If I’d stayed at college I would have become a teacher.
Syd Barrett
Come to think of it, some of the most special films in my career were ‘City Of Life’ and ‘Happy New Year.’ For both these films, I stayed over a month in Dubai and just when I was thinking that I need one more film like that, that’s when ‘Kung Fu Yoga’ happened.
Sonu Sood
My father was convinced, I think rightly, that if he stayed in Russia, he would have trouble with Lenin.
Leonid Hurwicz
I was the person who stayed awake reading by the nightlight until the scary shadows made me crazy.
Margaret Stohl
I grew up as normally as any other kid. Between that small TV part I did at five and when I turned professional actor at 18, I stayed away from the limelight, so I was just like any typical kid who went to school.
Timothy Hutton
When I got to Oak Hill, I got a chance to learn. I learned a lot about myself, basketball and about school. If would have stayed in Texas, I probably wouldn’t have graduated.
Stephen Jackson
Maybe in hindsight the move to Sauber – not to disregard that year – but maybe if I’d stayed at Force India, that could have been a change to my career.
Nico Hulkenberg
This marched was planned to be non violent and non confrontational, and gladly it stayed that way. What really impressed me was the self discipline of the Black Block.
John Blair
I wouldn’t have been born if my parents had stayed in China. Which is kind of funny. But it also just kind of fills me with this existential dread.
Bowen Yang
The weather was turning cold and I remember that Dante was using nothing but natural light as his electric department was away, prepping the scene in the cave. We stayed on that rock for the whole day.
Madeleine Stowe
That’s how I lived for 10 years in Bristol after graduating. I just stayed in my student flat and paid very little rent. It was lovely, and part of me still misses that very lazy lifestyle. I was known as the magician on the street, and I used to dress a little eccentrically in a cloak.
Derren Brown
People now tell me it’s a good thing I stayed away from teen films. Well, it wasn’t my choice. I wasn’t hired.
Laura Dern
A lot of stuff people said to me when I was younger subconsciously stayed with me and became my biggest insecurities.
Ananya Panday
You do need parental guidance and I was in a great position with both my mum and dad. They split when I was a baby but even though I stayed with my mom they were both very much involved in my upbringing.
Leonardo DiCaprio
Had I stayed longer in some primaries, I would have probably done better in states like Nevada, California, and New Mexico – but I ran out of the money after the second primary in New Hampshire.
Bill Richardson
Music was our wife, and we loved her. And we stayed with her, and we clothed her, and we put diamond rings on her hands.
Lionel Hampton
I stayed at Morgan Stanley for 27 years because it was fun. I kept learning.
Ruth Porat
It stayed with me – the Bible has stayed with me. I’ve grown out of it because, obviously, you live life for yourself and have your choice to believe what you want to believe in, but I know that the Bible can be used to appreciate life.
Benjamin Clementine
Ballykissangel’ made me a household name, and I am enormously grateful for that, but I don’t feel it would ever have developed me into a better actress had I stayed.
Dervla Kirwan
If I had stayed at City I think I would have been someone who simply filled in when I was required. I’d rather go elsewhere and play regularly. Be a bigger part of a smaller team.
Micah Richards
I’ve always stayed pretty fit. I felt I needed to give myself energy by exercising and things like that.
Caroline Corr
The thing that everybody loves about the ‘Burnett Show’ was that you felt like you were really there – all that fun stuff stayed in the show, and I think that’s why everybody remembers it so fondly because that just doesn’t happen anymore on television.
Vicki Lawrence
I have often asked myself if I would have worked as hard if I was as ill as Steve Jobs. My answer is that my wife most likely would not have let me work, and I would have stayed home. But I am not Steve Jobs.
Terry Gou
I have stayed active. I do keep moving. But I should start swimming more. Great exercise.
Marv Levy
I went to a branch of the City of Westminster College in Maida Vale to do drama, sociology and English literature. I stayed for three or four months.
Ashley Walters
I do come from theater. I didn’t spend a lot of time there ’cause once I started in television, I just kind of stayed there.
Rekha Sharma
Fashion is constantly evolving throughout the seasons and within various cultural changes, but the one thing that has stayed constant is how I always want my style to be an authentic, intrinsic part of myself.
Liu Wen
In my head, I felt if I’d stayed at City and got a chance, I could have done a good job. It was made clear that wasn’t going to happen, though.
Gareth Barry
Be willing to step outside your comfort zone once in a while; take the risks in life that seem worth taking. The ride might not be as predictable if you’d just planted your feet and stayed put, but it will be a heck of a lot more interesting.
Edward Whitacre, Jr.
I was in the 4th grade, and one day I didn’t want to be in class. My father had just gotten a new Harley-Davidson, and he came and took me out of class. He said it was too beautiful to be indoors, so we stayed out all day.
Cree Summer
I’ve always stayed really close with my mother and my father.
Nicole Richie
I’ve always wanted to do acting. The biggest thing I ever did was ‘The Dirty Dozen.’ My contract was for three months, but the picture was taking longer to make than they thought it would. I stayed for seven months, and Frank Sinatra told me to leave. He said the public is very fickle and that they’ll forget you.
Trini Lopez
I probably would have played baseball if I had stayed in California… But I like Oklahoma better now. Football is bigger here. It’s more exciting, anyway.
Troy Aikman
I would say one of the most romantic things I’ve done is I’ve taken a girlfriend back to her hometown when she hadn’t been back for years. It was in Puerto Rico, and we stayed there for about a week and a half. She showed me the different places she grew up around.
Noah Centineo
I’ve spent 34 years associated with the Cubs, and part of the reason I’ve stayed in baseball is because I want to be part of a World Series winner.
Ryne Sandberg
Electroclash is good because it’s stayed underground.
Chris Lowe
I was as alone as a person can be. I could not turn to a friend, for nobody wished to befriend me. I was toxic, and everyone knew it. To be near me was to be near hardship. Wise people stayed far away. I was alone, atop a mountain of rage. Why was I made to wear these awful scars?
Phan Thi Kim Phuc
You have high school photos and stuff, but to have a recording of your voice and your work from 20 years ago, it’s a kick in the head to hear how you’ve changed and what you were interested in at the time and how it’s either changed or stayed the same.
Samuel Ervin Beam
I always stayed on top of my schoolwork. I did it because I had to and because I had a strict father. He made sure I did my homework and told me not to mess around in class.
Chris Eubank Jr.
I spent two years living in London – I’d have stayed for ever if I could have got a work visa. It was there I started collecting vinyl and fell in love with the sounds of the 1970s.
Lady Starlight
That was the division in the hacking world: There were people who were exploring it and the people who were trying to make money from it. And, generally, you stayed away from anyone who was trying to make money from it.
Jeff Moss
If only I’d stayed on the West Coast, I might have made something of myself.
Mitch Kapor
When TV came along some years back I purposely stayed away from drama.
Van Heflin
‘Lost’ was filmed in Hawaii, so we stayed there and loved it, so we thought, ‘Why would we leave?’ It is a bit like growing up in a bubble, but I don’t think that’s a bad thing, as you will eventually get out and see the real world.
Henry Ian Cusick
You never came home for lunch: you just stayed doing, playing, having fun, surfing, running round.
Diane Cilento
The Warriors are a lifestyle. I love every Warrior that stayed. They represented Oakland with pride. I love the Warriors. I love Oakland. I love the people.
Lil B
I truly think if I had stayed in England, I’m not sure I would be coaching. So what America gave me was kind of a dream and the opportunity and ability to follow that path, which I really had never dreamed about. I just feel very fortunate to be here.
Jill Ellis
Basically, I’d finished doing gymnastics when I was 15, 16, but I’d stayed training because I’d just sort of loved it, and I’d met a man by the name of Peter Bell – no relation – who it turns out was a stuntman in New Zealand.
Zoe Bell
Those who came to France came to find France, not to turn it into their country of origin. If that’s what they wanted, they should’ve stayed in their country.
Marine Le Pen
I’ve stayed away from doing ‘urban film’ because I just don’t relate to the characters. I’m not going to take a role because I happen to have the same skin color.
Zoe Kravitz
It annoys me a great deal when people accuse me of not having any ambition because I’ve stayed at Southampton all these years. You can’t get more ambitious than to aim to play for England, can you?
Matt Le Tissier
I was first imprisoned in Pretoria, and then, thereafter, I was taken to Robben Island. I stayed there for a couple of weeks. I was taken back to Pretoria when I was charged in the Rivonia trial, when I was then sent to Robben Island for life.
Nelson Mandela
It’s a very insular world, ballet. I feel if I had stayed much longer, it would’ve consumed me. I performed six days a week and rehearsed 10-plus hours a day. And you only see the people that you work with.
Amanda Schull
I fell in love with New York. I moved here 25 years ago in 1984 after I lived in Paris for six years. In the 1980s, it was the place to be. Here I was able to create NARS, which I would not have been able to create if I stayed in France.
Francois Nars
I stayed in show business to pay for my animal business.
Betty White
I can recall that nobody ever went out the door that wasn’t dressed nicely, even though it was the Depression. I particularly remember on Sunday, the day we all went to church, if you didn’t have it together, you kind of stayed in the house.
Faith Ringgold
The quarterback, you can play with a lot of big injuries. You get a little injury like an index finger or a thumb that most people can play with, sometimes you can’t. I’ve stayed away from some of those.
Eli Manning
I feel like 35. At 35 you’re old enough to know something and young enough to look forward to what you can do with the knowledge. So I stayed at 35!
Michael Caine
I really couldn’t come out until after I got my citizenship, because it was a disclaim – back then, it could have been a disqualifier. I could have been denied my U.S. citizenship because I was gay. So I didn’t – I stayed quiet.
Martina Navratilova
I stayed out of the sun when I was young, not because I knew better, but because I’m a Type A personality who gets too restless to lay around and do nothing.
Georgette Mosbacher
We drove for 10 hours on rocky trails out into the central part of Mongolia in a Russian utility vehicle with no shock absorbers. Then we arrived at a remote area where we stayed in a yurt and waited to meet a horse wrangler who was scheduled to bring our rides.
John Fusco
I ask myself: Would I have been any worse off if I had stayed home or lived on a farm instead of shock treatments and medication?
Gene Tierney
I kind of like the idea of just coaching, nothing else. But I just think some coaches are better suited for college than the NBA. I believe I’m one of those guys. I think Tom Izzo is one of those guys. Mike Krzyzewski. I think they found the right jobs and they’ve stayed with them.
Jim Boeheim
When I was working for Radio 1 in Ibiza I stayed in a horrible place with a tiny window and really noisy air conditioning – the last thing you need in Ibiza, where you’re often a little bit the worse for wear at the end of the night.
Sara Cox
There have been nights I’ve stayed up late thinking about, ‘What’s wrong with my swing? What do I need to fix?’
Ben Zobrist
We took the craziest cruises across Europe. And I went on a jungle safari in Ranthambhore. We stayed in the Ranthambhore Palace. We had heard that one gets to spot the tiger in the early mornings and every moment I was getting those Discovery Channel glimpses in my mind!
Koel Mallick
One of the reasons that I’m still in the military – or I stayed in the military – is because I think the military has been a place where certainly people could improve, advance, and were treated fairly.
Michael Mullen
I won my fight on ‘The Ultimate Fighter,’ my dad died the next day and I stayed in the game and won the whole thing.
Michael Chiesa
In the early 1980s, I got into a war with my management – they just kept on suing me and I lost everything. So I had to go out on tour to make sure the electricity stayed on.
Meat Loaf
I can’t stand on a podium and beat my chest saying I’m the best. I just think I’ve been the luckiest of all. Yes, I’m talented. The movies that I’ve chosen and the way they’ve fared have also helped. I’ve always done films I would love to watch. I have stayed away from films which I thought were depressing.
I see the Beijing National Stadium as an architectural project. I accepted Herzog and De Meuron’s invitation to collaborate on the design, and our proposal won the competition. From beginning to end, I stayed with the project. I am committed to fostering relationships between a city and its architecture.
Ai Weiwei
I have to say, the first time I stepped into the ring, it was probably at the age of 4. That’s when I was hanging out with my uncle, my mom’s brother, Rey Mysterio Sr. It runs in the family; it’s stayed in the family.
Rey Mysterio
My father was a misanthrope who slept all day and stayed up all night so that he wouldn’t have to see people. He ran a business with a large staff but would go there at night and leave things for them to do during the day when he wasn’t there.
Edmund White
I had a baby and stayed home for a couple of years, and I was really casting about, thinking, ‘What am I going to do?’ My husband’s view of it was, ‘Stay home… We’ll have more children; you’ll love this.’ And I was very restless about it.
Elizabeth Warren
I wanted to go to the underdog team – I wanted to build something somewhere like a lot of the other guys who stayed home at Maryland, like Vernon Davis and players like that. I wanted to stay home and do it in front of my family and my friends… Those thing matter to me.
Stefon Diggs
I got in the school band and the school choir. It all hit me like a ton of bricks, everything just came out. I played percussion for a while, and stayed after school forever just tinkering around with different things, the clarinets and the violins.
Quincy Jones
The difference between Marilyn Monroe and the early Pamela Anderson is not that great. What’s amazing is that the taste of American men and international tastes in terms of beauty have essentially stayed the same. Styles change, but our view of beauty stays the same.
Hugh Hefner
I never intended to be a teacher, but once I started teaching, I found that junior high kids are easy to get hooked on, and I stayed for nearly twenty years.
Susan Campbell Bartoletti
Klopp would reproach me for not tracking back properly. I took things on board, and I listened to him. I worked hard in training; I stayed behind after training. That’s what helped me to shine in the Bundesliga because I scored quite a lot of goals despite some difficult games in the league.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang
I wouldn’t dream of commenting on Hilary Mantel as a novelist, frankly I’d be grateful if she stayed off my patch as a historian. She is intelligent, she is bright, she is an admirable writer. I happen to find her Tudor novels unreadable, but that’s because I am a Tudor historian.
David Starkey
Ever since I was little, I always played point guard. All throughout high school, junior high. I hit a couple growth spurts and the guard thing just always stayed with me. It just comes natural.
Rodney Hood
When I was in my 20s in the 1970s, I read all of Jean Rhys. I have reread very little since because the first impressions were so powerful they have stayed with me.
Linda Grant
‘American Graffiti’ stayed in my mind, but I don’t think to this day I’ve done a film that captured that same level of melancholy. It was so well done. Talking about it has given me the idea I might try harder to make that melancholy film!
Jean Reno
If I stayed in London, I probably would have gotten more work. I’ve never wanted to be thought of as an ‘It’ girl, someone who rides on the coattails of my mother.
Tali Lennox
My college life was brief because I started working for my debut film when I was in eleventh standard. But I have no regrets, as I stayed in touch with my friends who keep briefing me about the drama in the college. The opportunity to get into showbiz was so exciting that I couldn’t let it pass by.
I’ve always thought stability was suffocating and deadly. Like, when I read that the kids I went to law school with have stayed at the same firm, I feel like I’m reading an obituary. How much money do you need? Six million, seven million? Put that in the bank and do something else. Get out!
Glenn Greenwald
I think that some of the archetypes and works of science fiction that have pierced pop culture and stayed there are the darker ones and the dystopias.
Robin Sloan
I’ve had many managers, and learned a lot from them, the good ones always stayed even-keeled, never rode the waves.
Dave Martinez
I’ve always dreamt of being on a Stanley Cup-winning team. That always stayed with me.
Jarome Iginla
But, I would say when I was four years old and I was at the Alan King Tennis Tournament and I was hitting with all the pros that would come to town. They would get me on the court or take notice and that stayed with me.
Andre Agassi
When I was growing up in New York, we were the anomaly. Our family stayed, but back then families didn’t stay. Once you had a second kid, you immediately left, so the kids could run around outside.
Mike D
I think our cinema has stayed in its adolescent stage largely because of our obsession with and our dependence upon stars to make our movies. The stars, being only too human, realise that this is the case, and so they milk it for whatever it’s worth, and who can blame them?
Naseeruddin Shah
I’m a basketball guy. No sitcom guy. I don’t care about all that jazz. I care about basketball. It’s not me. And I stayed with what I did, and I’m very proud that I did that because I make a great living and I’m lucky and I get to be involved with the thing I truly love, and that’s the game of basketball.
Dick Vitale
When I stayed with my father in Africa, I was always covered from head to foot in a shirt buttoned to the neck and khaki trousers. But I often got burnt feet, because I wore sandals, which might explain the cancer on my foot.
Princess Michael of Kent
I’ve purposely stayed away from reading much about postmodern theory, and most everything I have read just bored me to tears. I don’t think anybody’s written about it, or very few have, with any verve.
Dave Eggers
Let’s say, 100 years ago, I’m not sure how many people had to empty out their relatives’ homes; they just stayed in the same house, because they lived there. Nowadays, almost everyone, at least once in their life, somehow, has to deal with this experience.
Arnon Goldfinger
Growing up in Highbridge was real. Me and all my friends, we never really went to any other places in the Bronx but Highbridge. We always just stayed in Highbridge. It was like territory, to be honest, because Highbridge is like a town.
A Boogie wit da Hoodie
If we could have somehow stayed away from the public and the press, it might have been different, but every private issue seemed to be played out on the front page.
Marla Maples
I went on inactive duty in August 1945, and since I had stayed in such good shape and had played ball on military teams, I was ready to start for the Indians just two days later, against the Tigers.
Bob Feller
Those days of every child having a mummy and daddy who lived at home – Daddy went to work, and Mummy stayed at home and took care of everyone – those days have almost gone, and it’s so much more unconventional now.
Kate Winslet
The packaging of Led Zeppelin’s IV doesn’t have the name of the band, doesn’t have the name of the album: It’s got a guy on the cover with a load of sticks on his back. This record didn’t quite get to No. 1 in the United States – it went to No. 2 – but stayed on the charts for years and years and years.
David Hepworth
I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, born and raised. It was hard. I stayed with my momma, then I ended up moving with my daddy.
Tay Keith
The idea of being in the State Department was exciting. On the other hand, I always had in the back of my mind going into politics. If I stayed in Washington, I might end up a government hack.
Elliot Richardson
The main thing for me was when I won my first title in Kuala Lumpur. That was the biggest step that I made. I made the Top 100, and I’ve stayed there ever since.
Karolina Pliskova
There was a time when my parents had to sell off a plot of land so that I can buy a rifle for competitive tournaments. After that we stayed in a rented house for the next 15 years.
Gagan Narang
You have to keep the business side together as well as the creative side. We have constantly surprised people and stayed with bands until they have grown on people.
Greg Ginn
My best mates are my mates from school, and we have always stayed close.
Chris Coleman
I think I made essential a mistake in staying in movies, because I – but it’s a mistake I can’t regret, because it’s like saying, ‘I shouldn’t have stayed married to that woman, but I did because I love her.’
Orson Welles
At Juilliard, I couldn’t afford to have fun. I went to school and stayed home.
Anthony Mackie
I’ve stayed away from sexy roles. It’s never interested me.
Carmen Ejogo
I think the Brazilian people are very fond of Neymar for the fact that he stayed at Santos for so long and stayed in Brazil. That’s very cool for him.
As the prospect of a Tory government gets nearer, many traditional Labour voters – some who switched away in recent times and many who stayed at home – seem more determined to prevent that happening.
Lucy Powell
I don’t know that I’d be a comedian if I stayed in Canada.
Katherine Ryan
I couldn’t put my finger on one reason why we broke up. It was time, and we were spreading out. They were spreading out more than I was. I would’ve stayed with the band.
Ringo Starr
I would have liked it to have stayed serious and have the adventures of a family lost in space. This isn’t to take anything away from Jonathan and the Robot. I watch his performance today and he still makes me laugh.
Mark Goddard
A family holiday to Jamaica in 2004 – my uncle was getting married out there, and it was the first holiday I’d had in Jamaica, which is where my father is from. My friends and I stayed in a really plush hotel, The Ritz-Carlton, so we had a great experience.
Alesha Dixon
Alex O’Loughlin is an old friend. Actually, when he first came to L.A., he stayed at my house.
Martin Henderson
